Biomaterials, Growth Factors, and Lasers: Next Generation Regenerative Periodontology 2020
SPONSOR: Fotona Laser
PRESENTER: Dr. Richard Miron, DDS, PhD
DESCRIPTION: The field of Periodontology is moving at an unprecedented fast pace with new technologies and biomaterials being brought to market faster than ever. This lecture aims to introduce evidence-based technologies from the author of the best-selling textbook in 2019 titled: “Next Generation Biomaterials for bone and periodontal regeneration” by Quintessence. An overview of new Biomaterials will be presented including novel osteoinductive synthetic bone grafts, Tetranite, Emdogain to the development of Osteogain, as well as updates in horizontal centrifugation of Platelet Rich Fibrin using Bio-PRF. Discussion over the importance of vitamin D will be presented as it relates to recent research demonstrating its marked importance in early implant failure. Lastly, novel indications and widespread uses of the Fotona laser will be presented as they relate to both periodontal regeneration and facial esthetics.
