Current Concepts in Bioactivity and Regeneration

Description:
An injury to the tissue instantly stimulates the healing process. To heal properly, we need three elements: scaffolds, cells and growth factors. If one of these three elements are missing there will be no tissue regeneration. Plasma rich in growth factors (Endoret® (PRGF®) technology, enables clinicians to apply autologous growth factors and a fibrin scaffold in a simple, safe and effective method. The Endoret® (PRGF®) stimulates the tissue-building cells to achieve regeneration. An optimal alveolar regeneration is characterized by fast haemostasis, adequate inflammation, stem cell mobilization and differentiation, rapid soft tissue closure of the socket and correct tissue regeneration. The adequate management of the extraction socket will determine the final outcome of implant-supported restorations. In this lecture, tips on how to deal with the different types of extraction socket, mostly infected, will be presented. The use of plasma  rich in growth factors and the Endoret® (PRGF®) fibrin membrane is a key factor to enhance socket regeneration, post-operative recovery and minimize/treat complications.

Dr. Anitua, What is the difference between a-PRF, and i-PRF as proposed by Dr. Miron and Choukroun and your Endoret PRGF. Is it just the White Blood Cells. And what are differences in applications? Christopher Marzonie.

Prosthetic Soft Tissue Development From Single to Full Arch Reconstruction
In addition to surgical intervention is the creation of the specific emergence profile that is essential in the aesthetic zone. The emergence profile composed of 2 parts, the abutment and the subgingival part of the crown. The shape of abutment can be individually shaped so that it gives natural appearance and varies individually (depending on the depth, angulation and diameter of the implant). Sometimes it even dictates the implant position. From a surgical perspective, soft tissue height, position and thickness need to be diagnosed and corrected when needed. From the prosthetic point of view, the emergence profile has to be created to mimic the natural appearance and maintained over time in respect to the biological changes. The course teaches step by step how to be successful with implant prosthetics from single tooth, partially edentulous to full arch reconstruction.

Is There One or More Reasons to Optimize the PRF & PRP Protocols? Future Trends in Dentistry, Orthopedics and Facial Aesthetics
The “Advanced” PRF (A-PRF) and “Injectable” PRF (I-PRF) protocols were designed with this new concept. Indications are numerous in all medical fields where we need regeneration: bone, cartilage, skin etc... However, the use of growth factors is not a guarantee of long term stability, as they are active only at the beginning of the process. Numerous rules of tissue engineering have to be applied to maintain the regenerated bone through an adequate blood supply: this lecture is an enlightenment on the biological and mechanical conditions for long term stability of the bone: “grafted bone” or “bone around implants”.

Biologic Width Adjacent to Loaded Implant with Machined and Rough Collars in the Dog

Biologic Width Adjacent to Loaded Implant with Machined and Rough Collars in the Dog
Dental implant surface technology has evolved from a relatively smooth machined implant surface for osseointegration to more roughened osteoconductive surfaces. Recent studies suggest that peri-implant soft tissue inflammation with progressive bone loss (ie peri-implantitis) is becoming a prevalent condition. One possibility that could explain sucha a finding is that more bacterial plaque forms on the roughened implant and abutment surfaces, which may result in the peri-implant inflammation if the soft tissues. This study compared 36 tissue-level implants with a machined transmucosal collar to 36 implants with a relatively roughened transmucosal surface in the dog. The results demonstrated that the connective tissue contact was similar between the two implant types but that the junctional epithelium and biologic width dimensions were greater around the implants with the machined collars...

Esthetic Correction of Gingival Recession Using a Modified Tunnel Technique and an Acellular Dermal Connective Tissue Allograft

Esthetic Correction of Gingival Recession Using a Modified Tunnel Technique and an Acellular Dermal Connective Tissue Allograft
Esthetic correction of gingival recession is an important goal of periodontal therapy. This article describes a surgical technique that combines a modified tunnel technique and an acellular dermal connective tissue allograft. With the aid of vertical incisions, a tunnel is created under the buccal mucosa of the affected tooth. These incisions enable easy access for graft placement and create mobility for gingival coronal positioning. The use of an accelular dermal connective tissue allograft eliminates the need for a surgical palatal donor site. This minimizes post-surgical complications.

Connective Tissue & Bone Graft for Anterior Immediate Implant Placement

Connective Tissue & Bone Graft for Anterior Immediate Implant Placement
Immediate implant placement in a one-stage approach, with or without provisionalization, has proven to be advantageous in preserving gingival anatomy around dental implants. But placing implants immediately in the changing alveolar bone of an extraction socket can result in progressive recession of the gingival labial margin over the implant restoration. Thicker biotypes and bone of the labial periimplant tissue have been shown to promote long-term stable gingival margins. A surgically simple technique…
