This course is designed for specialists and general practitioners who are interested in enhancing their bone and soft tissue grafting techniques for dental implant cases. Leukocyte- and Platelet-Rich Fibrin (L-PRF®) is derived from a small sample of the patient’s blood, taken at the point of care and processed to develop a fibrin clot. The fibrin clot is prepared into a membrane that is rich in platelets, growth factors and cytokines necessary to produce rapid healing and efficient regeneration.
This biomaterial is resilient, strong and pliable, making it easy to manipulate and receptive to suturing. It can be cut to size and is supple enough to adapt to many anatomical areas. It is adhesive in nature, making it an ideal carrier for bone graft material. Uses include: bulking graft material, replacing graft material, using it as a barrier membrane, placing it in extraction sites for increased healing, and using it in guided tissue regeneration procedures. It is also ideal for extraction/immediate implant cases.
Research clearly indicates that L-PRF significantly enhances wound healing in both hard and soft tissue. In this course, you will learn the science behind L-PRF and how to incorporate it in your clinical practice. The hands-on training will demonstrate the blood draw, teach you how to create the L-PRF membrane/plugs, and give attendees experience with membrane handling characteristics.
