Regenerative therapies utilizing platelet-derived growth factors: Why and how are they effective?

Surgical Continuing Education (CE) for General Dentists

Course Description

Overview

There are three ways to enhance potential implant sites where bone and/or soft tissue are deficient. One is by autogenous bone block grafts. A second is through GBR (Guided Bone Regeneration) using allograph biomaterial and membranes. A third is through NBR (Natural Bone Regeneration) using regenerative therapies with platelets as a means of speeding revascularization to damaged or defective tissues.
Platelet concentrates for surgical use are tools of regenerative medicine designed for the local release of platelet growth factors into a surgical wound site to stimulate tissue healing and/or regeneration. The first generation of platelet bioactive products utilized in medicine to influence healing is PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma). The new, and more effective, platelet concentrate is L-PRF (Leukocyte-Platelet Rich Fibrin).

This practical 2-day course will provide an understanding of the science behind wound healing and how growth factors released by platelets act to repair and regenerate hard and soft tissues. Protocols for harvesting the patients’ blood and producing L-PRF, creating “sticky bone” and fibrin membranes will be demonstrated in a hands-on workshop setting for participants.
