  • Managing a Post-Op Third Molar Infection

    19:58 Published: 07/09/2019

    Every surgical procedure has complications, no matter how experienced the surgeon or how routine the procedure. Knowing how to manage the most common complications is critical if you are doing surgery. If you hire another doctor to do your surgery for your practice, you also have the same responsibility when they are not available. Run time- 19:58

  • Piezotome Extraction with Immediate Implant

    0:22:41 Published: 03/19/2019

    Removing an ankylosed root in an older patient can be challenging. It is even more so when the surgeon is attempting to remove the root as atraumatically as possible, so that a dental implant can be immediately placed. Just like with any other task, having the right tools makes the job more efficient, precise, and straightforward. For atraumatic extractions, the use of the ultrasonic piezotome with a tip that is designed to separate the ankylosed tooth from the surrounding alveolar bone, along with Proximators to expand the socket and elevate the root, are essential. Following this with the accuracy of fully-guided implant placement provides the ideal way to preserve bone and restore function. This case illustrates how these instruments and technologies are used to make immediate implant placement at the time of extraction efficient and accurate. Run time 22:41

  • A Simple Extraction (no such thing)

    11:19 Published: 12/14/2018

    There is no such thing as a simple tooth removal. A non-surgical extraction can have many challenges and can result in unwanted complications. Making it look "easy" requires knowledge, skill and experience. This case, removal of an erupted mandibular central incisor, illustrates a number of points. Duration 11:19.

  • The BFD ain’t no BFD

    18:21 Published: 10/17/2018

    If you are going to do surgery, you need to understand what you are doing. This means knowing not just "how to do it", but also the biology, anatomy and potential complications. This is what separates the clinician from a technician. If you are a technician, you should not be doing surgery. This case illustrates a common complication of maxillary third molar surgery. Even in the most well-trained and experienced hands, it can still occur, but it is easily managed without any sequelae. Run time 18:31.

  • Ankylosed Tooth Extraction Using the Piezotome® CUBE

    09:48 Published: 10/08/2018

    This video shows the use of the Piezotome CUBE to facilitate removal of an ankylosed tooth root in the mandible. Atraumatic extraction of even the most difficult tooth can be performed if the right instruments are used. Traditionally, a surgical handpiece and bur would be used to separate an ankylosed root from the alveolar bone. But new technology allows the use of ultrasonic instruments to sever the periodontal ligament and widen the space between the root and bone without the risk of overheating or removing excess bone. The use of the Piezotome CUBE and Proximators is demonstrated by Dr. Reznick in this course.  Duration 09:48.

  • I think I can. I think I can.

    14:06 Published: 07/14/2017

    One of the biggest mistakes a clinician can make is to "think" that they can successfully perform a surgical procedure. It is essential to KNOW that you can do it before you pick up the first instrument. This video discusses a case where the doctor had no plan, did not know how to handle a broken root tip, and after an hour of struggling, finally sent the patient to Dr. Reznick to complete the surgery. The basic principles of how to handle a broken root on a mandibular molar are discussed.  Run Time - 14:06.

  • Preserving Keratinized Gingiva After Multiple Extractions

    14:35 Published: 08/30/2016

    It is not uncommon to need to remove multiple adjacent teeth in a patient. Traditional surgical technique emphasizes trimming of the marginal gingiva, including the interdental papillae in order to facilitate primary closure of tissue over the surgical site. This technique has been around long before tooth replacement with dental implants was the standard of care. Unfortunately, this removes a significant amount of ketatinized gingiva, which is undesirable if implants are planned. Keratinized gingiva is also beneficial for supporting a removable prosthesis. This video shows a technique which preserves most all of the keratinized tissue following multiple tooth extractions and alveloloplasty. Run time- 14:35

  • Leveraging Digital Technology to Improve Patient Care

    24:09 Published: 08/24/2016
