Hard and Soft Tissue Grafting for Optimal Implant Reconstruction

2020 Workshops

Optional Workshops – Wednesday, October 14, 2020: (requires separate registration, not included in main session registration price)

Dr. Richard Miron: New Trends in PRF Therapy
4 CE Hrs ($595 USD)
8:00 am – 12:00 pm (Morning Session) SOLD OUT
1:30 pm – 5:30 pm (Afternoon Session) SOLD OUT
Please call for waiting list: (727) 781-0491

This hands-on course will cover all the new advancements made with respect to the newest formulations of platelet concentrates. These will cover how to make custom-shaped PRF grafts, how to better concentrate liquid-PRF and will provide a better understanding for optimization of the protocols utilized in every day dental practice.

Thereafter, the Bio-Heat technology will be presented. This will cover the heating steps necessary to extend the working properties of PRF from a fast-resorbing 2-3 week membrane towards a membrane that lasts 4-6 months. Various protocols will be demonstrated whereby clinicians will learn how to make an extended-PRF membrane that lasts 4-6 months, as well as how to make a novel sticky bone that contains an outer e-PRF membrane that may be utilized for ridge augmentation procedures.

• Optimization of protocols for any centrifugation device
• Update on Bio-Heat technology and the ability to extend the working properties of PRF from 2-3 weeks to 4-6 months
• Improve cell and growth  factor release using concentrated-PRF (C-PRF) protocols when compared to traditional injectable-PRF (i-PRF) on any centrifugation device
• Launch of the Bio-Cool technology
• Importance of PRF tubes for the fabrication of PRF

Dr. Pat Allen: Tunnel Technique for Soft Tissue Grafting
4 CE Hrs ($595 USD)
8:00 am – 12:00 pm (Morning Session) SOLD OUT
1:30 pm – 5:30 pm (Afternoon Session) SOLD OUT
Please call for waiting list: (727) 781-0491

This course includes lecture, video surgery, and hands-on exercises to teach the tunnel technique using AlloDerm or a new xenograft. Step-by-step surgical protocols will be provided in a procedural manual and attendees will perform  tunnel grafting procedures on a custom model simulating actual recession defects.

The following topics will be covered:
• Current minimally invasive tunneling technique for root coverage
• Microsurgical instrumentation and specialized suturing techniques
• Management of surgical complications
