Regenerative Dental and Facial Rejuvenation: The Essential Role of Growth Factors

Description:
The potential of plasma rich in growth factors is well-documented in different medical fields to improve tissue regeneration and to minimize pain, inflammation and morbidity resulted from a surgical intervention. In this presentation we will discuss the potential of this endogenous therapy in the treatment of post-extraction socket and in the field of facial rejuvenation of the peri-oral region.

Questions & Comments
Mario Marcone - (5/27/2013 9:24 PM)

Thank you Dr Anitua for this very interesting & intruiging presentation. The PRGF product looks VERY attractive. However, I have several comments and questions, and respectfully I will ask you to be patient with my direct comments and questions ... 1- You state, but you do not explain why and how, PRGF has bacteriostatic properties. 2- You state that leucocytes do not have bacteriostatic properties, and you imply that, along with the red blood cells,they play no role in the in the growth factor story. Intuitively, I ask, is it not the role of a leucocyte in the human body to defend against disease-causing micro-organisms, and, therefore, it must be involved somehow in the growth factor stimulative mechanisms. Can you please explain how can such an important cell be totally useless according to your protocol, and how you have arrived at such a conclusion. 3- You state that PRGF is 100% autologous. I have examined the PRGF protocol carefully, and it involves, like in the PRP protocol, the addition of anti-coagulants initially, followed by other agents to reverse the anti-coagulant effect. As a result, I do not really agree that the PRGF protocol is 100% autologous, AND, therefore not 100% biological nor anywhere near physiological. A natural blood clot has no additives. Also, what effect do these additives have on the natural components of the blood we are manipulating? 4- You talk about irrigating infected sockets with antibiotic ... which antibiotic are you referring to? 5- How do you compare the PRGF protocol to other very different growth factor protocols available today, such as CGF (Concentrated Growth Factors, from Italy) and Choukroun's PRF (Platelelet Rich fibrin, France, where the leukocyte content is considered to be a very major component of the growth factor mechanisms. Also, the PRGF protocol appears to be a very elaborate and time-consuming procedure. I need to have this clarified because it is a very distinct difference. 6- I am very skeptical, and so I need to ask ... Have your scientific findings been replicated by other research centers around the world, besides your own in Spain, as all the article references you made in this presentation have you as principle author. If so, can you please let us know. Are you the sole owner, publisher, and advertiser of PRGF ? 7- Dr Anitua, thank you and I look forward to your response. Once again, I wish to congratulate you on your awesome work and contributions.

Dr. Anitua; Many thanks for your impressive lecture on Biologics and Growth Factors. Is the protocol different for Facial Rejuvenation procedures? If so, in what way? Can we perform these facial procedures in the USA? Thanks Band

NEW PRGF-Endoret Protocol (Platelet Rich in Growth Factors)
PRGF®-Endoret Technology is based on the activation of the patient's own platelets for the stimulation and acceleration of tissue healing and regeneration. It is a technology that allows the use of the organism's own resources with extraordinary results in many pathologies, effectively regenerating tissues without side effects and notably reducing the recovery period of fractures, muscular and tendinous injuries, and surgical interventions. Dr. Maurice Salama‚Äôs assistant, Charlene Bennett, will elaborate in detail describing the step-by step PRGF preparation and how it can be utilized clinically.

Implant Risks, Complications, and Solutions in the Esthetic Zone - Part 1 of 3 Premium Member Content

Implant Risks, Complications, and Solutions in the Esthetic Zone - Part 1 of 3
Immediate tooth replacement therapy has become a mainstream treatment modality for single tooth implants in the esthetic zone. The balance between achieving primary stability, implant diameter, and gap distance is a delicate dance yet essential for survival and esthetics. However, esthetic risks and complications exist such as apical socket perforation, loss of labial plate thickness over time, and loss of the interdental papilla due to proximity issues with tooth-to-implant distance following placement. An inverted body-shift implant design concept as solutions to these challenges will be presented and supported by studies that scientifically supports, validates, and reinforces the biologic principles in design that ultimately enhances esthetic outcomes in modern day implantology.

Implant Overdentures: What You Need to Know Premium Member Content

Implant Overdentures: What You Need to Know
Implant Dentistry has evolved from the original concept of primarily treating the edentulous mandible with a retrievable fixed prosthesis. Today most dental implant cases involve partially edentulous situations treated with fixed prosthetic solutions. However the fully edentulous mandible and maxilla still comprise an important subset of our patients, and techniques for utilizing fixed and removable full arch prostheses have evolved to restore both arches. The relative pros and cons when comparing the fixed vs removable prosthetic treatment can be very significant. In particular when treating the fully edentulous maxilla, the challenges with a full arch fixed prosthesis can be formidable. This presentation will rationalize the treatment options available and demonstrate the advantages of the unsplinted full maxillary arch overdenture design.

Prosthodontics, Periodontics & Orthodontics: A Multidisciplinary Approach to Implant Dentistry
Many aspects of various dental disciplines must be integrated to constitute a sound total approach to implant dentistry. Aside from the surgical elements - encompassing implant placement, position, angulation, and length - the creation of appropriate spaces to accommodate the three-dimensional final prostheses may require use of orthodontic techniques as well. And establishing and maintaining a sound periodontal environment is essential to implant integrity, from the outset of placement to finalization of the prosthetic suprastructure.
