Traditional Oral Surgery Tooth Extractions

The elevator is a common extraction instrument used by many Oral Surgeons and Dentists that is wedged between the tooth to be removed and it's neighboring tooth is rotated and is supposed to move the tooth upward. This is impossible as it can only cause lateral motion.

In reality the use of this time of instrument places a tremendous amount of pressure on the adjacent tooth which it rests on (i.e. fulcrum point) and can result in the severing of the nerve and blood supply resulting in additional dental work on the healthy tooth.

Additionally, many of the doctors will routinely use rotary instruments to drill away surrounding bone during a complex extraction. This causes third degree burns to the bone, which results in postoperative pain and accelerated bone loss as the body eliminates the damaged bone structure.

Implications for Bone Augmentation - Tissue Grafting

Violating the tissue rapidly accelerates the bone loss. As such, it often requires the augmentation of bone through grafting prior to implant placement. If the tissue is treated with respect during the extraction process, an implant can often be placed immediately.

A conservative extraction process allows the entire extraction/implant placement to be accomplished in the same visit. In addition the postoperative discomfort/swelling is greatly reduced when the surrounding tissues are not violated.

Intelligent Alternatives for Healthy Extractions

Atraumatic tooth extraction preserves the remaining alveolar bone and surrounding tissues. Specifically, the periosteum which is the layer of connective tissue that supplies the majority of vascularity to the osseous(bone) tissue.

Tooth Extraction Research

A group of bioengineers and biophysicists researched the last 150 years of research done on exodontias (tooth removal). Not a single study was found.

One of the commonly used dental forceps used today ..... was designed during the time of Ramses, 3000 years ago! Most of the remaining forcept instruments types were designed by barbers and manufactured by blacksmiths over a hundred years ago.

There was no science behind the insrument design. Brute force was required to pull the tooth. The entire jaw and skull moved and damage was often caused to the TMJ (jaw joint) during this primative procedure.

Imagine a medical doctor ripping of an infected body part and sending the patient home with a gauze instructing them to apply pressure until the bleeding stopped.

Extracting Teeth with the Finger Tips

These scientists studied the geometry and motion requirements to remove a tooth using known established truths of physics and geometry. They developed a specific protocol and instrumentation to use fingertip pressure to minimize the force and surrounding tissue damage.

The system is called the Ogram System and is taught in this country by bioengineer Gunner Phillips, Phd. It is the first scientifically developed tooth removal system and is highly technique sensitive, and highly effective.

There are only a handful of dentists trained in the USA in the Ogram System. However, the system is taught in dental schools in Germany, Switzerland, Austria and France.

The Ogram system allows the vast majority of teeth be removed without traumatizing the bone, gums and adjacent teeth. This results in less bone resorption and postoperative discomfort.
