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?

Comprehending Maxillofacial Anatomy and Related Pathology with CBCT
The advent of CBCT has brought a great deal of excitement to the dental professionals. For the first time, we have a diagnostic tool which has overcome the known disadvantages of the traditional projectional dental diagnostic images (periapical and panoramic radiographs) with the provision of sharp sectional images at any desired plane (multiplannar imaging).

Ortho/Perio Treatment on Impacted Upper Central Incisors
Upper central incisor impaction has functional, esthetic and psychologic implications. Causes of the impaction can be divided in obstructive and traumatic. Among the first ones are: supernumerary teeth, odontomas and mesiodens. Among the second group are facial trauma received in the primary or early mixed dentition. In close relation as well with root dilaceration. Other less common reasons for impaction include: crowding, endocrine alterations, bone diseases, genetic conditions, extraction or ankylosis of primary incisors. The impacted upper central incisor can be classified depending on: mesio-distal position, occluso-gingival position, midline angulation, degree of root formation. If early intervention is not enough. There is the need for surgical exposure and orthodontic traction. Among possible treatment complications are: esthetic gingival sequelae, ankylosis and root resorption

Stem Cells in Dentistry Premium Member Content

Stem Cells in Dentistry
Stem cells are undifferentiated cells, capable of renewing themselves, with the capacity to produce different cell types to regenerate missing tissues and treat diseases. Oral facial tissues have been identified as a source and therapeutic target for stem cells with clinical interest in dentistry. In this brief presentation, Dr Ana Paz presents stem cells and outlines the clinical applications of stem cells in dentistry. Although more clinical research in this topic is still needed, Dr Ana Paz believes that the main features of stem cells in the future of dentistry should be understood by clinicians.

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”.

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…

Mucosal Coronally Positioned Flap for the Management of Excessive Gingival Display in the Presence of Hypermobility of the Upper Lip and Vertical Maxillary Excess: A Case Report

Mucosal Coronally Positioned Flap for the Management of Excessive Gingival Display in the Presence of Hypermobility of the Upper Lip and Vertical Maxillary Excess: A Case Report
Excessive gingival display is a frequent finding that can occur because of various intraoral or extraoral etiologies. This report describes the use of a mucosal coronally positioned flap for the management of a gummy smile associated with vertical maxillary excess and hypermobility of the upper lip. For patients desiring a less invasive alternative to orthognathic surgery, the mucosal coronally positioned flap is a viable alternative. We demonstrate short-term successful use of this technique for the management of excessive gingival display in the presence of slight vertical maxillary excess and hypermobility of the upper lip. Long-term follow-up studies are needed to determine stability of the results.
