Introducing Choukroun’s Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) to the Reconstructive Surgery Milieu
Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF), developed in France
by Choukroun et al (2001), is a second generation
platelet concentrate widely used to
accelerate soft and hard tissue healing. Its advantages
over the better known platelet-rich plasma
(PRP) include ease of preparation/application, minimal
expense, and lack of biochemical modification
(no bovine thrombin or anticoagulant is required).
PRF is a strictly autologous fibrin matrix containing
a large quantity of platelet and leukocyte cytokines.
This article serves as an introduction to the PRF
“concept” and its potential clinical applications.

The Trial Smile Experience
Have you ever thought that if your patients only knew how much a smile makeover could enhance their faces, they would be interested in cosmetic dentistry? The Trial Smile Experience is an interactive exercise that demonstrates the facial improvement that your patients can expect to achieve, while building trust and eliminating their fear of the unknown. In addition, the model of the trial smile allows the clinician to communicate the esthetically driven aspects of the treatment plan to their technician and specialists. This tool is sure to create more cosmetic dentistry in your practice, and you will learn:
• When the Trial Smile Experience is most effective
• How to use digital photography for co-discovery with your patients
• Techniques for performing an effective clinical mock up (trial smile)
• How to use the mounted trial smile model and digital images to communicate with your technician and specialists
The Hidden Value of Digital Radiography for Caries Detection
The webinar will cover the basic features of Logicon and how it works, our recommended protocol for using it, and its role in the treatment plan for the version (4.0) presently on the market, where the dentist selects the surfaces to analyze and initiates the analysis. The webinar will also describe a new version (5.0) presently under FDA review that raises digital caries detection to a new level where all the surfaces in a bitewing radiograph are analyzed automatically at one time to give the dentist (and patient) a more global view of the state of their teeth.
