Introducing: Surgical extrusion & minimally invasive extraction with the Benex

LARAMIE MEDICAL SOLUTIONS is proud to be hosting an exciting CPD event in London covering
NEW DATE: Friday, 27th September 2019
Places are limited as this is a ‘hands on’ training event.
Bookings are based on a first come, first serve basis.


Surgical extrusion has long been established as a treatment option for teeth with severely compromised coronal tissues. However, the technique has not been popular, as ‘atraumatic’ extraction and subsequent handling of teeth has been unpredictable with conventional techniques. ‘Atraumatic’ tooth extraction has received much attention with the advent of implantology and the need for bone preservation. Perhaps the most significant advance in this area is the development of instruments that allow the vertical extraction of tooth roots. The Benex system can be used to reliably extract teeth with minimal trauma to periodontal ligament and alveolar bone and also facilitates the surgical extrusion and restoration of teeth that would otherwise have been unrestorable.
