Summary:

Reconstructive dental surgeons are constantly looking for an “edge” that jump starts the healing process to maximize predictability as well as the volume of regenerated bone. Is it bone morphogenetic protein-2 (BMP-2), recombinant platelet derived growth factor-BB (rhPDGF-BB), platelet rich plasma (PRP), plasma rich in growth factors (PRGF), or a combination of all four? Let me say from the outset, “I don’t know” and this report will not provide the answer, but it will serve to introduce a second generation platelet concentrate, platelet-rich fibrin (PRF). PRF is easy to obtain, less costly, and a possibly very beneficial ingredient to add to the “regenerative mix.”

During my career in dentistry, I have seen patients successfully maintain their restorations for more than 40 years. Other patients have needed replacement or repair in less than 5 years. Why is there such a tremendous range? Obviously, the lifespan of a restoration has a strong correlation to its original fabrication quality. But professional dental oral maintenance plus home care by the patient can greatly influence the lifespan of restorations as well. This article addresses the basic elements…

Efficacy and Persistence of Tooth Bleaching Using a Diode Laser with Three Different Treatment Regimens
Bleaching is the most conservative esthetic treatment for discolored teeth when compared to resin-bonded composites, porcelain veneers, or crowns. The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacy of power bleaching using a laser assisted hydrogen peroxide system, and to determine the stability of the color change over a 6-month period.

The Role of Occlusion in Implant Prosthetics
In this presentation Dr. Carlo Poggio delves into the biomechanics and clinical relevance of proper occlusal management in implant dentistry. Combining a thorough review of the literature with clinical dental applications, Dr. Poggio attempts to suggest a rational for designing the occlusion for implant restorations. Topics covered include comparison of occlusal management for teeth and implants. In addition, the importance of controlling the occlusal forces to protect the bone-implant interface from overload and the role of occlusion in peri-implant microbial infection.
