Topic Description :
Scope of Blood & its Products in Periodontology & Oral Implantology
Bone regeneration in dentistry involves the use of cells, biological or artificial biometric scaffolds, and biofactors that promote cell growth and differentiation along complex pathways to repair the tissue. Growth factors have a crucial role in this process since they influence chemotaxis, differentiation, proliferation and synthetic activity of bone cells, thereby regulating physiological remodeling and bone healing. That makes the use of the autologous and recombinant growth factors (GF) a rapidly growing field of regenerative dentistry focusing on manipulating GF and secretory proteins to maximize the healing of bone and soft tissues.
Most of the growth factors derived from autologous blood is released upon platelet activation, and their clinical use has been popularized with Platelet-rich plasma (PRP), Platelet rich fibrin (PRF) & its advancements namely A-PRF & i-PRF, Concentrated Growth Factors (CGF), Sticky Bone Concept etc. It is time to use this ‘BLOOD’ in different ways to achieve regenerative potentials in the field of dentistry
-Understand role of blood & its products in wound healing– various growth factors
– Learn the concept of PRP, L-PRF, A-PRF, i-PRF+,T-PRF, StickyBone, MPM, CGF.
– Understand Hard and soft tissue regeneration with these platelet derivatives.
– Learning of Clinical applications of platelet derivatives in dentistry
– Understand Peri-implantitis and marginal bone loss treatment
– Recognize these Biological factors for long-term success
