PRF treatment is one of the most significant innovation in the field of dental implantology. Learn how to use it in your daily practice from the inventor, Dr Joseph Choukroun

Enhance wound healing and bone regeneration more rapidly with PRF treatment either during dental implant placement or after dental extraction and get more predictable surgical outcomes.

The use of PRF treatment enables local delivery of a fibrin matrix, cells, growth factors and proteins which accelerate wound healing and tissue regeneration, stimulate osteogenesis, promote new blood vessel formation, and reduce morbidity.

Learn about the biology behind long term stability in soft and bony tissue management. The positive and negative factors which control angiogenesis, blood supply and bone metabolism will be explained as well as the most advanced approaches for preventing and treating peri-implantitis will be introduced.

Just finished 2 amazing days learning from the best Dr Joseph Choukroun.
In my opinion this course is a must for any dentist placing implants.

Great course organised on PRF with Dr Choukroun. I really enjoyed my time in London with Dental Iceberg. The Venue and catering was excellent as well.

APPLICATION AREAS OF PRF

• Around dental implants (increases implant stability and faster osseointegration)
• Extraction Sockets (to allow early bone and gingival regeneration)
• Bone augmentation
• Guided Bone Regeneration – GBR
• Sinus Grafting (as sole or combination graft biomaterial)
• Peri-implant defects
• Root Coverage
• Intrabony & furcation defects

ADVANTAGES OF PRF TREATMENT

  • Increased tissue growth — Higher growth factor release over a 10-day period compared to PRP
  • Accelerated Healing of Bone to Dental Implants
  • Improved Strength of Bone Integration to Dental Implants
  • Graft additive — Used to improve the handling characteristics of grafting materials- “Sticky Bone”
  • Decreased Chance of Dry Socket and Bone Pathology — after Tooth Extractions
  • Reduction in surgical costs — Material costs is approximately £10/patient
  • Reduction in time —compared to PRP. Simple to prepare and implement as it does not necessitate the direct activation with additional factor
  • Natural healing — processed entirely without the use of additives
  • Predictable outcome
  • Safe to use — All components of the PRF process are safe
  • Infection resistance — Shown to have as much as a 10-fold decrease in osteomyelitis infections
  • Improves surgical success — Uses growth factors to improve the likelihood of surgical success
  • Reduces patient pain — Has been shown to reduce postoperative pain
  • Reduces healing time — Ability to shorten the overall healing period
