This course is designed for specialists and general practitioners who are interested in enhancing their bone grafting technique, especially for dental implant cases.
Platelet Rich Fibrin (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 for the material include bulking graft material, replacing graft material, using it as a barrier membrane, placing it in extractions sites for increased healing, and using it in guided tissue regeneration procedures. It is also ideal for extraction/immediate placement cases.
In this course, you will learn the science behind PRF and how to incorporate it in your clinical practice. The hands-on training portion will teach you how to create the PRF membrane/plugs, and a live surgical procedure will demonstrate how PRF is easily incorporated into everyday practice.
