Dynamic advances in regenerative technologies are profoundly affecting our basic understanding of the biologic mechanisms of clinical
implant dentistry. These technologies have led to new treatment concepts affecting a broad spectrum of clinical conditions. This hands-on
workshop gives the clinician the skills to combine these procedures in a predictable and simplified manner. Dr. Pinto, a distinguished pioneer in the field of tissue regeneration, presents a set of guidelines for the use of L-PRF and PRF-Block with a step-by-step approach. Live demonstrations as well as clinical video selections of each aspect of the process are carefully reviewed and analyzed. The workshop includes the fabrication of L-PRF and PRF-Block grafts. Each participant has the opportunity to handle L-PRF membranes as well as fabricate their own PRF-Block graft providing additional confidence in delivering these new treatment modalities to their patients.

Learning Objectives:

At completion of this presentation, participants should be able to:

1. Understand the science-based evidence for the applications of L-PRF
2. Explore guidelines for the use of L-PRF and PRF-Block with a step-by-step approach
3. Introduce different applications of L-PRF or PRF-Block in their daily practice
4. Relate many tips and suggestions about using different biomaterials
