Course Time: 8:30 AM - 5:00PM
CE Credits: 16
This course is designed for the clinician that currently utilized PRF in every day practice, but wishes to maximize on the technology by understanding the advancements made in the field over the past 5 years including the ability to extended the working properties of PRF from 2-3 weeks into a biomaterial that last 4-6 months.
While beginners may take the program, the course is designed to take clinicians into the world whereby extended-PRF membranes can replace collagen membranes created using the Bio-Heat Technology including its various clinical applications. While many colleagues in the past have taken the 1 day PRF program either live or online, this course is designed to teach clinicians how to make e-PRF membranes including the Bio-Bone protocols. Day 2 will be entirely run at Nova Southeastern University's simulation lab where participants will get to practice each protocol and surgical technique on big mandible jaws. Topics such as GBR techniques and soft tissue grafting will be covered.
To learn the advancements made in PRF therapy over the past 5 years including extended-PRF membrane applications
To familiarize all clinicians with the Bio-Cool and Bio-Heat technology and their helpful use in everyday regenerative dentistry
To manually practice and fabricate extended-PRF membranes and Bio-Bone protocols
To utilize the technology of extended-PRF membranes for socket grafting, GBR procedures and Sinus Grafting
To present treatment concepts aiming to predictably obtain periodontal regeneration including root coverage/intrabony defects.
To teach the optimal flap design and suturing techniques with leaders in the field
Theoretical part - Day 1
Presentation of a critical overview on the available data to date on PRF specifically focused on advanced concepts including e-PRF protocols, fabrication and clinical applications. Demonstration of various clinical case applications of extended-PRF membranes at work. Concepts related to using liquid-PRF with antibiotic therapy for periodontal intrabony defect regeneration will also be presented.
Practical part: exercises on animal models (pig mandibles)
Phlebotomy concepts to speed blood draws and maximize PRF
Protocols using the Bio-Heat and Bio-Cool devices to create long-lasting PRF membranes that last 4-6 months
Hands-on use of extended-PRF membranes with bone grafts (Bio-Bone protocol) and its use in GBR procedures
Use of e-PRF membranes in periodontology including root coverage procedures, sinus grafting and Socket Grafting
Suturing techniques for e-PRF graft fixation
Suturing techniques for predictable flap closure
