The Ogram System – The Atraumatic Micro-Motion Approach for Tooth Removal
At Desert Smiles we keep up to date in the latest and greatest dental techniques. We recently did some continuing education on the Ogram System. Gunnar Philipp, a recognized international lecturer who has designed atraumatic microsurgeries for the dental and medical professions, taught us. He is considered the leading international specialist for atraumatic exodontia.
These new techniques have been shown to have over 85% success of non-impacted teeth extracted being trauma free to surrounding tissues compared to 9% using conventional tooth removal protocols. This surgical technique and new instrumentation also has been shown to have an average bone loss post surgery of .2 mm vs. 2.6 mm with traditional removal techniques.
As we expand our implant placement options for our patients, this allows implant success to increase due to the bone preservation and decreases the need for our patients to undergo expensive bone grafting procedures prior to implant placement. When teeth have to be removed it also allows us to provide a much less traumatic procedure with less postoperative discomfort and faster healing.
