The use of platelet concentrates has had a long-history of use in various fields of medicine as an autologous source of growth factors fabricated utilizing centrifugation of blood under various conditions. While platelet rich plasma (PRP) was proposed as a first-generation platelet concentrate over 3 decades ago, over the past 10 years, platelet rich fibrin (PRF) has seen a steady increase in utilization for a variety of medical procedures due to its lack of anti-coagulation factors favoring fibrin clot formation and faster wound healing.
It seems like crestal bone loss was with us forever, and that really for majority of clinicians became a norm. Maybe that’s because we all have been taught by Albrektsson et al from 1986, that 1.5 mm of bone loss within the first year of loading can be considered as a success, if later bone loss does not exceed 0.2 mm annually. There are so many possible reasons for bone loss, that dentists think that is not possible to control all of them and tend to give up the idea of crestal bone stability. However, I consider it outdated and not accepting the idea that bone loss in unavoidable.
During this talk we will address the new possibilities that advanced mechanics with miniplates offer us in the preparation of cases for oral rehabilitation. We will explain how we perform the management of the occlusal plane in the three planes of the space to achieve a functional occlusion and the condilos in central relation before the rehabilitation. In this way, we achieve the stability of the entire stomatog netic system.
The digital maturity of people has advanced in two months what under normal conditions would have done in 3 years. Customers will require much closer attention, that facilitates attention and responds to the needs that technology offers us.
The presence of tissue defects leads to aesthetic complications in implantology. The S.M.A.R.T. technique was developed with the purpose of preserving gingival architecture in high-risk cases. Literature has shown that traditional ROG often results in deformations of peri-implant tissues. S.M.A.R.T. is a minimally invasive technique of bone regeneration mediated by growth factors
Webinar: Biological basis and clinical decision in the use of the tunnel technique for multiple recession coverage
et’s discuss and immerse into the biology of the tissues in order to have a better understanding of the surgical management of them when treating recession type defects. Our purpose is to create a favourable environement in order the healing take place and that is only possible when it is clear in our mind how the evaluation of the clinical situation must be carried out
The restoration of implants in the aesthetic zone varies significantly from implant treatment in other areas. Successful outcomes require not just osseointegration of the implant fixture itself, but also creation of appropriate gingival architecture, selection and fabrication of an abutment / crown system that balances aesthetic and functional demands.
Webinar: S.M.A.R.T. Minimally invasive bone grafting, innovative solutions for improved implant esthetics
Traditional GBR procedures often result in complications leading to inadequate gingival architecture. Restoring the patient’s appearance in the presence of peri-implant tissue defects constitutes one of the most difficult challenges in clinical dentistry. This presentation will demonstrate the use of the S.M.A.R.T. Minimally Invasive Bone Grafting method for the prevention and treatment of compromised sites in the esthetic zone
