what is the difference between prgf and prf?or are they the same?dr.demircan

Maurice Salama - (5/14/2011 4:52 AM)

Blood born Growth factors, BMP and even Stem Cells will continue to play a significant role in reconstructive dentistry. Dr. Anitua is a pioneer in this arena. Worth watching for sure. Dr. Salama

A Clinical Update in Bone Regeneration: Autogenous Bone vs. BMP-2
For historical and biological reasons autogenous bone has long been considered the gold standard of bone graft materials. For bone augmentation procedures autogenous grafts provided predictable volume gains, favorable bone quality with short healing periods. However, the need to harvest the graft and associated morbidity are inherent disadvantages. The choice of a technique for bone augmentation is dependent on a number of factors including the use of bone substitutes. More recently recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein (rhBMP-2) has been shown to be effective in repairing buccal wall defects from extractions and in sinus bone grafting. The use of rhBMP-2 is currently under clinical investigation as a replacement for autograft in ridge augmentation process.

Titanium Mesh and it's Role in Bone Augmentation; A Clinical Review Premium Member Content

Titanium Mesh and it's Role in Bone Augmentation; A Clinical Review
Different surgical procedures have been proposed in reconstruction of deficient alveolar ridges for placing dental implants in optimum prosthetic and esthetic position. One of the inconveniences of titanium mesh which has been reported is the exposure of it but on the other hand the benefit in comparison to non resorbable membranes is that there is no need for removal and the risk of infection is very low. In this lecture different cases will be presented and clinical points to be considered in using titanium mesh will be highlighted.

Esthetic Zone Reconstruction: Synergy of Hard and Soft Tissue Grafting Premium Member Content

Esthetic Zone Reconstruction: Synergy of Hard and Soft Tissue Grafting
The loss of alveolar ridge contour in the esthetic zone compromises both esthetics and function. This clinical presentation will focus on the application of both hard and soft tissue grafting in the esthetic zone implementing state of the art interactive CT diagnosis and treatment planning for optimal esthetic implant reconstruction. Emphasis will be on indications, graft and harvest site assessment, timing, and use of bioactive modifiers including BMP, PRGF and PDGF. The surgical protocol utilizing allogeneic and autogenous grafts in conjunction with connective tissue grafts, acellular dermis matrix, and related soft tissue procedures to avoid functional and esthetic pitfalls will be featured. Pre and post-grafting prosthetic workup, interactive CT graft assessment and perio prosthetic driven implant planning, stent driven implant placement, and computer milled abutment fabrication including guided surgery will be included.

Post-Traumatic Treatment of Maxillary Incisors by Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration with Long-Term Follow-Up

Post-Traumatic Treatment of Maxillary Incisors by Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration with Long-Term Follow-Up
Replacing both missing maxillary interior teeth is particularly challenging, especially in compromised sockets. The case report describes the management of an 18-year-old female patient, who suffered avulsion of both maxillary central incisors at 7 years of age. The multidisciplinary implant technique, called Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration (IDR), included extraction of the injured teeth and a single procedure for immediate implant placement and restoration of the compromised sockets after root fracture and peri-apical lesion development were detected during orthodontic treatment. Successful esthetic and functional outcomes and reestablishment of the alveolar process after bone reconstruction were observed during the 3-year follow-up period. The predictable esthetic outcomes and soft and hard tissue stability that can be achieved following IDR are demonstrated.
