This presentation will provide a clinical update on Esthetic Implant Site Development. The utilization of recombinantly engineered platelet-derived growth factor-BB (rhPDGF-BB) has accelerated the trend toward minimally invasive surgical procedures to preserve and enhance the esthetic foundation for dental implant restorations.
Upon course completion, you will:
- The use of growth factor technology is reducing the need for autogenous bone grafting and allowing for minimally invasive procedures.
- Applying tissue engineering to clinical decision-making achieves optimal biologic and esthetic results for challenging dental implant cases.
- Techniques with utilizing rhPDGF-BB for combined hard and soft tissue grafting will be presented.
