Growth Factors - Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) in Soft Tissue Surgery: From Theory to Clinical Practice

Description:
Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) belongs to a new generation of platelet concentrates, with simplified processing and without biochemical blood manipulation. One of the benefits of the platelet gel membrane is the enhancement of advanced soft tissue surgical procedures. Especially in the treatment of multiples recession defects. The use of PRF highlights an accelerated tissue cicatrization due to the development of effective neovascularization, accelerated wound closing with fast cicatricial tissue remodeling, and nearly total absence of infectious events.

Hi Dr Achille...is it possible to use only prt membrane to repair class 1 miller ( only small recession ). Thanks

Edison Louie - (1/12/2014 2:17 PM)

Thank you for your presentation and candid remarks.

hello dr Achille i see u did not suture the connective tissue.is the prf alone sufficient to hold the graft in position

Dear Dr Marco, could you please give me that article(Classification of platelet concentrates: from pure platelet-rich plasma (P-PRP) to leucocyte- and platelet-rich fibrin (L-PRF)) you advise us to understand more on PRF

Mark Neale - (9/30/2012 9:54 PM)

Thank you for your presentation. Have you tried using only the PRF membrane without the CT graft for re-establishing tissue coverage with recession issues. Secondly, do you have to have complete tissue apposition closure with a PRF membrane cover under your tissue flap or will you have a flap dehiscence like you would with using a allograft membrane?

The Evolution of Guided Surgery and Case Management
The innovation in assisted implant surgery is constantly increasing. This success is due to the fact that guided surgery provides a reliable therapeutic solution. The use of these techniques is not only interesting for implant-supported rehabilitation by immediate loading but also for tissues supporting implants by insuring the best emergence profile.

Alternative & New Tendencies for Alveolar Reconstruction in Modern Implant Dentistry Premium Member Content

Alternative & New Tendencies for Alveolar Reconstruction in Modern Implant Dentistry
Knowledge of bone biology and physiology are crucial for successful dento-alveolar reconstruction. The presentation will review the natural healing process of the bone and the sequence of events needed for proper regeneration. This process will then be discussed and compare with the present materials and technologies available in the market including alloplastics and allogenic materials. The role of the Stem Cells and rh-BMP2 will be exposed as part of these new trends in alveolar reconstruction for modern implant dentistry. Multiple cases will be presented demonstrating the versatility and outcomes in different clinical situations based on biological, bio-mechanics, and implant aesthetic needs.

Controlled Ridge Splitting (CRS) Premium Member Content

Controlled Ridge Splitting (CRS)
To demonstrate a new technique of controlled ridge splitting (CRS) in severely atrophied maxillary cases as an alternative to autogenous block graft. Twenty cases were completed using a controlled ridge splitting (CRS) technique with a total of 65 implants were placed in severely atrophied Maxillae and followed after the implants were loaded. Results: The CRS technique was used in very complex cases, where the alternative method will be autogenous block graft. A total of 65 tapered implants were placed. The implants diameter ranged between 3.25-5mm with a length ranged between 10-13mm. The implants were restored and were followed for 1-3 years. All implants achieved osseointegration and continue to have successful prostheses. Conclusion: The CRS is a predictable treatment option and could be a good alternative to autogenous block grafts is severely atrophic maxillae.

Preserving Needle Edges During Dental Suturing
The evolution of suture materials has presented today's clinician with numerous alternatives when performing dental suturing. Contemporary sutures not only eliminate some of the difficulties that the surgeon may have encountered previously during closure, but also decrease the potential of postoperative infection and help provide optimal healing. Despite the sophistication of the suture materials (ie, Perma Sharp, Hu-Friedy, Chicago, IL) and surgical techniques now available, closing a wound still involves…

Elements and Utilization of Suturing Needles

Elements and Utilization of Suturing Needles
The primary components of every suturing needle include the attachment end, body, and point. Traditional complications caused by threading have been eliminated by the advent of needles that are permanently attached to the suturing material. The suturing procedure is further simplified by the attached and press-fitted end of the needle (swaged) that enables the clinician to draw it through the tissue with less trauma.

Applied Techniques for Predictable Suture Placement Part 1
Surgical suture positioning is crucial to ensure adequate healing and can be accomplished using a variety of suturing methods. Sutures should generally be placed distal to the last tooth and within each interproximal space and should always be inserted through the more mobile flap first The flaps should not be blanched during the tying procedure, and closure should not be positioned closer than 2 mm to 3 mm from the edge of the flap, in order to prevent tearing during the inevitable swelling that…
