Root Membrane Kit
The Golden Standard Technique for successful immediate implant placement in the esthetic zone.
Root Membrane Kit
Root Membrane Technique
Until now, the Root Membrane surgical procedure was performed only by highly skilled dentists. We released this kit to make the surgical procedures one that can be performed by more and more dentists. By following the step-by-step instructions, the tissue can be entirely protected with the precise tooth modification.
As the studies show, when the buccal root fragment is intentionally left in place, the blood supply will be maintained smoothly, and consequently the dimensions of alveolar ridge can be preserved. On the basis of this evidence, it has been established that Root Membrane Technique is a safe treatment that yields a high implant success rate.

Top (Left to right)
The 24-month radiograph showed a limitation of defect size, while the resorption traces of apex did not appear radially. There was no sign of radiopacity consistent with the defect fill for 36 months. Apex resorption of the root is confirmed.
Bottom (Left to right)
With 48 months of follow-up, the cross-section showed complete defect fill and about 1.5 mm root reabsorption. The reabsorption area is full of new bone cell with radiologic pattern and it leads new born growth.
How to Use the Root Membrane Kit
The ideal thickest central part of Root fragment is 1.5-2mm when viewed from the occlusal surface.
To prevent this, trim the palatal side bone before fixture placement by using tapered diamond.
It’s kind of counter sinking drilling. You can adjust the depth of the tapered diamond according to the diameter of the fixture being placed.
If a gap between the root fragment and the fixture is wide, perform a little bone graft.

The Best Diamond Drill for Root Membrane Technique
MegaGen selected Hinatawada because it has been recognized as one of the world’s top manufacturers, and is known for is craftsman-like manufacturing philosophy. Also, Hinatawada has designed this drill to provide optimum durability, as well as the elimination of wobbling and power interruption.
2. 34mm long diamond drill does not wobble when it is used at high-speed rotation. (Rotation accuracy: less than 3 microns)
3. Sharpness of the diamond drill is extremely durable
4. The diamond drill, which is made with high precision by grinding process, displays consistent quality
5. Superior hardness of the diamond drill, eliminates the risk of bending during treatment, thus making it safer
6. A high rotation accuracy and small shaft vibration prevents abrasion of the handpiece bearing
