apparatus. Root submergence has been demonstrated to retain the
periodontal tissues and preserve the ridge beneath dentures or fixed
prostheses. The socket-shield technique entails preparing a tooth
root section simultaneous to immediate implant placement and has
demonstrated histologic and clinical results contributory to esthetic
implant treatment. A retrospective 10-patient case series treating 14
partial extraction sites demonstrates how a modification of the socketshield
technique can successfully develop pontic sites and preserve the
ridge.
