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

sahar Othman - (12/2/2012 2:10 AM)

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?

Mastering Surgical Principles: Key to Constant Success
Clinical success depends on material and technique selection, but no material or technique will succeed if surgical principles are not respected. Attention to detail is imperative and mastering surgical principles is key to constant success. This course aims to review principles of flap design and elevation, as well as degranulation, debridement, suturing and wound stabilization of the most commonly performed periodontal, implant and advanced bone grafting procedures. Pharmacologic protocols and anesthesia will also be discussed.

Lasers in Contemporary Implant and Restorative Dentistry: A Microscopic Perspective Premium Member Content

Lasers in Contemporary Implant and Restorative Dentistry: A Microscopic Perspective
In the lecture, we will discuss the role of lasers after the implant has been placed. We will demonstrate how it can be used to improve healing. It can be used during uncovery. It can be used in periimplant tissue removal, and even in the exciting world of periimplantitis. Clinical cases will be presented showing hard-tissue lasers being used for decortication as an alternative to traditional means. We will focus on why an electrosurge may be damaging to your implants, and may cause you more problems than benefits, and why a diode-laser may be your treatment of choice.

The Interdisciplinary Software Platform. The Key For Modern Digital Dentistry Premium Member Content

The Interdisciplinary Software Platform. The Key For Modern Digital Dentistry
The starting point of a facially driven interdisciplinary dental treatment plan is "The Smile Frame". A few crucial photos and steps will come together to create the ultimate template you need to communicate to your dental team, colleagues, and the patient to ultimately increase case acceptance and create the most aesthetic and functional method of rehabilitation to your patient. We will discuss how this paradigm shift of regular analog dentistry has shifted to this modern digital world and the benefits it provides. The protocol proposed will improve the diagnosis, communication and predictability of esthetic rehabilitation, from simple implant or restorative cases to complex cases, combining perio, ortho, and othognathic surgery. Emphasis will be given to the utilization of digital tools to enhance and facilitate the Dentist/Technician interaction and communication with the patient.
