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.
