Restoring the unrestorable!
Developing coronal tooth tissue with a minimally invasive surgical extrusion technique
Thomas Dietrich,*1,2 Ralf Krug,3 Gabriel Krastl3 and Phillip L. Tomson
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.

Thomas studied Dentistry and Medicine at Charité, Humboldt University in Berlin, Germany, where he subsequently trained as an Oral Surgeon and worked with the Departments of Periodontology and Oral Surgery.
In 2001 he was awarded a scholarship by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) to study quantitative methods at the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston, where he graduated with an MPH in 2002. In 2003 he joined the Department of Health Policy and Health Services Research and Department of Periodontology at Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine as Assistant and later as Associate Professor, where he pursued his interest in oral epidemiology and clinical outcomes research. He was appointed Professor of Oral Surgery at the University of Birmingham in 2007. Thomas has led on a number of clinical studies evaluating the clinical performance of the Benex® system and has published widely on the topic of this seminar.
