Tooth extraction leads to loss of bundle bone and soft tissue. This is a possible limitation for immediate or delayed implant placement. As a result, it is often necessary to performed extensive augmentation procedures to facilitate implant placement. Partial Extraction Therapy preserves bundle bone and soft tissue while Osseodensification improves primary implant stability through preservation of and autografting of trabecular bone.

This presentation outlines the biological rational and benefits of tissue preservation to optimize oral reconstruction with dental implants. S.P.O.T is a comprehensive treatment methodologies based upon preservation of nature. The objective is to emphasize how the use of innovative diagnostics, surgical techniques, and instrumentation can preserve nature and enhance clinical outcomes for implant treatments.

Clinical cases demonstrating SPOT treatment modalities in various ways and combinations to achieve both minimally invasive and time effective solutions will be presented. Past, present and future “out of the box” protocols will also be shared.


  • Identify the SPOT treatment methodologies
  • Understand the biologic rational for Partial Extraction Therapy
  • Understand the biologic rational for Osseodensification
