✓ Bone grafting is a useful adjunct and often a prerequisite for site development for placing dental implants and for optimizing the alveolar ridge for fixed and removable dental protheses.
✓ Some of these applications include: Ridge preservation/extraction socket preservation. / Horizontal alveolar augmentation. / Maxillary sinus grafting.
✓ Periimplantitis management and implant maintenance and salvage.
✓ Common bone graft materials include allograft, autograft, xenograft and combinations of one or more.
✓ The typical of the shelf bone graft materials have the consistency of table sugar. Once hydrated and/or added to whole blood, it becomes more viscous an easier to handle. But still hard to control and contain, remaining for the most part, granular and particulate.
✓ Adding portions of the patient’s own autodonated whole blood product to the bone graft results in a quantum leap in the appearance, handling and applications of the graft in addition to bringing this concentrate of growth factors to the surgical site.
✓ Implications on wound healing, hemostasis, swelling and pain management will be presented.
✓ Delta Dental Code (————): “Collection and application of autologous blood concentrate product.” has already been made readily available for routine bone grafting procedures.
✓ A peripheral vein whole blood draw is required.
✓ A centrifuge machine and paraphernalia is required. The Medifuge system will be shown and made available in this course. ✓ Case presentations.
✓ To be exposed to CGF (concentrated growth factors) and PRF (platelet rich factors) as a membrane and fibrin glue technology.
✓ How these factors can be harvested and isolated from the patient’s whole donated blood.
✓ To see and apply approaches to venipuncture: Butterfly technique versus angiocatheter (Seldinger) needle-over-catheter techniques.
✓ Exposure to additional classes dedicated exclusively to phlebotomy, short course and long/licensing courses.
✓ Venipuncture, collection of blood specimens using butterfly and angiocatheter techniques.
✓ How to isolate concentrated growth factors from whole blood as an additive to the bone graft.
✓ How to make PRF membranes and various applications for PRF membranes.
✓ To review and critique clinical cases using these technologies.
