      Aims: The primary aim of this clinical study was to examine the effect of concentrated growth factors matrix (CGFm) on implant survival rate in augmented sinuses; the secondary aim was to evaluate the effect of CGFm on sinus augmentation postoperative morbidity. Materials and Methods: Fifty patients were selected from a pool of participants requiring maxillary sinus augmentation. Of these, 25 patients (control-group) received a corticocancellous xenograft. The other 25 patients (test group) received a mixture of 70% CGF matrix and 30% corticocancellous xenograft. Venous blood samples were drawn from each patient and immediately centrifuged. Four components were identified vertically from top to bottom: (1) An upper liquid phase constituted by serum; (2) a phase constituted by polymerized fibrin buffy coat; (3) a middle phase constituted by aggregated platelets with CGFs; and (4) a lower phase constituted by red blood cells. The middle (second and third) phases represented the CGFm and were mixed with the graft material. The survival rate was calculated and comparison was made between the 2 different groups using Kaplan–Meier analysis. Statistical significance was set at P < 0.05. Results: A 96.4% survival rate was described in the test group (with CGFm) and a 96.1% survival rate in the control group (without CGFm). No statistically significant differences were observed between the survival rates of the two groups after 1 year. Conclusions: The mixture of CGFm (70%) with xenograft (30%) is an alternative to xenograft material alone and is a predictable procedure resulting in less postoperative morbidity in sinus augmentation.

  • Homogeneous pressure influences the growth factor release profiles in
           solid platelet-rich fibrin matrices and enhances vascular endothelial
           growth factor release in the solid platelet-rich fibrin plugs

      Aims: Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) exists in both solid and fluid forms. The present study was the first to evaluate the influence of homogeneous pressure on the growth factor (GF) release in pressed PRF-matrices and plugs. Methods and Material: A solid PRF-matrix (208 g; 8 min) was pressed to obtain a plug, and a pressed PRF-matrix that are used in clinical application. The released exudates were evaluated compared to liquid PRF (60 g and 3 min). The VEGF, TGF-ß1 and EGF release was quantified using ELISA. The fibrin structure and cellular components in solid PRF groups were evaluated histologically. Results: The pressed PRF-matrix and PRF-plug exhibited denser fibrin structure compared to the non-pressed PRF-matrix. On day 7, the PRF-plug and non-pressed PRF-matrix showed significantly higher release of VEGF, TGF-ß1 and EGF compared to that of the pressed PRF-matrix. The accumulated VEGF concentration was significantly higher in the PRF-plug compared to that in the PRF-matrix and non-pressed PRF-matrix. The accumulated EGF and TGF-ß1 concentrations over 10 days showed no statistically significant differences between the evaluated solid PRF groups. The exudates released TGF-ß1 and EGF passively, that was only detectable in after 1 and 7 hours. Liquid PRF released significantly higher GFs than the exudates at all investigated time points. The early VEGF and EGF release in liquid PRF (1 hour to 1 day) was significantly higher than that in the solid PRF-matrices. On day 10, significantly higher accumulated GFs were detected in the solid PRF groups compared to those in the liquid PRF. Thus, the combination of both solid and liquid PRF is a potential tool to generate a clinically relevant system with sustained bioactivity. Conclusions: These results highlight the potential to influence the GFs release profile of solid PRF matrices by pressure and obtain a clinically applicable plug with significantly higher VEGF release, providing further understanding of the release profile of PRF matrices as a drug delivery system.

      Peri-implant mucosae inflammation during osseointegration period can promote host response imbalance and bone resorption by bacteria infiltration. Aim: To evaluate the association between EGF and EGFR gene expressions in the peri-implant tissue with mucosae inflammation during osseointegration period. Material and Methods: Forty-nine participants, with 59 endosseos implants, were recruited for this study. All participants included were rehabilitated with implants in two stages surgical protocol, presenting favorable bone quality and quantity. Osseointegration was evaluated one month after exposure surgery, wich was performed three months (mandible) and 6 months (maxillary) after implant placement. The criteria to consider the proper osseointegration were: Implant immobility; absence of peri-implant radiolucency; and no clinical signs of inflammation. Based on clinical and radiographic characteristics of peri-implant sites, participants were characterized as (i) having healing without complications (with proper osseointegration without mobility of the implant, and without clinical signs of mucosal inflammation) (control group) or (ii) failure peri-implant healing (with inadequate osseointegration characterized by signs of mucosae inflammation and/or implant mobility) (test group). Gingival biopsies were collected from 49 participants after osseointegration period, during the exposure procedure. Total RNA from gingival samples was isolated using the Trizol® reagent. The reaction of reverse transcription of PCR was performed for the synthesis of complementary DNA from 300ng RNA using Improm-II Reverse Transcription System™. Specific primers for EGF (NM_001963.4) and EGFR (NM_005228.3) were based on the BLAST data. The Livak method (2-ΔΔCT) was used to determine the relative quantification of the expression of EGF and EGFR. The values were normalized by relative expression of β-actin. Results: There was no difference between control and test groups to race, sex, age, alcohol consumption, general medical conditions, current medications, edentulism and periodontal phenotype. All RNA samples revealed proportions A260 nm/A280 nm more than 1.9. EGF and EGFR showed significant lower expression in gingival tissues removed from regions with failure healing (test group). EGF showed mRNA expression with an average of 44.53 ± 79.16 and 01.02 ± 1:33 in the control groups and test, respectively (P = 0.008). Similarly EGFR expression was significantly higher in the control group (102.03 ± 329.57) compared to the test group (7.85 ± 4.16) (P = 0:04). Conclusion: Low levels of EGF and EGFR are associated with inadequate healing of mucosal peri-implant during the osseointegration period.

      Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) concentrate was developed in France in 2001 by Choukroun et al. Initially known in its platelet gel form, it can also be used as a membrane, being widely used to accelerate the healing of soft and hard tissues. The aims of this study are to report the applicability of platelet-rich fibrin in dental practice, seeking evidences of benefits in the regeneration and healing process of both soft and hard tissue. For this, a bibliographic survey of articles published between 2007 and 2017 was carried out using the descriptors: “Platelet-rich fibrin,” “oral surgery,” “fibrin” and “growth factors,” during the month of December 2017 resulting in nine selected articles according to the preestablished inclusion criteria. The results of the studies either showed that PRF presents effective and safe use when used in combination with biomaterials or isolated, in addition to presenting low risk associated with satisfactory clinical results.

This stage of the treatment allows stabilization of the dental arch, adequate dental eruption, and orthodontic movement in the area of the cleft. Hence, it should be performed before the eruption of the permanent canine. Failure mainly occurs by dehiscence, exposure, and contamination of the bone graft. Adequate dissection, the definition of anatomical planes, and precise suture are paramount for a good result. However, this is often not enough. Sometimes, there is an anatomical limitation to make a suitable soft-tissue scaffold to be filled with bone graft. The lack of a hermetic closure of the anatomical planes can lead to contamination of the graft or even prevent its accomplishment in the same surgical time. Growth factors have been widely used in dentistry, with striking results in bone and tissue regeneration. Among these, platelet-rich fibrin is distinguished by allowing it to be made an autogenous membrane. This membrane supports exposure to the oral cavity without contamination and can stimulate the healing of soft and bony tissue, acting as a physical barrier. Its use as a growth factor and protective barrier of the alveolar bone graft in patients with cleft lip and palate is a promising tool for obtaining better results.

      A common problem encountered in every dental practice, root recession presents as an esthetic issue as well as creating exposed root surfaces that may illicit sensitivity and have greater caries potential than covered roots. Frequently, patients avoid treatment due to fear related to the traditional flap surgery approach. Technology, via biologics from the patient being treated has shifted surgical techniques to become minimally invasive, allowing lower morbidity and post-operative discomfort. The Gum Drop Technique (GDT) a papilla preservation technique, with a less invasive surgical approach utilizing PRF as the graft material with improved healing compared to packaged materials will be discussed as an alternative to traditional flap surgical approaches for root recession treatment.

  • Incorporating the socket-shield technique in the esthetic treatment of a
           patient's smile: A case report with 2-year follow-up

      The socket-shield technique has demonstrated promising histological and clinical results. Osseointegration has been reported to occur successfully with this technique, with added benefit of preserving the tissues buccofacial to an immediate implant. The present case report describes a modification of the socket-shield technique. Clinical and radiological examination at 25-month follow-up confirmed positive midterm esthetic results with high pink and white esthetic scores. Based on the clinical experience with this technique, it is the author's opinion that the socket-shield technique may well be the future accepted norm that best fulfills the goals of immediate implant treatment to offset buccofacial tissue recession and ridge collapse.

      Background: The purpose of this study is to analyze the advantages of the conometric connection and of the monophasic implants in the esthetic area. This work, according to the authors, helps the clinician to achieve excellent results on soft tissue by knowing and avoiding the pumping effect. Methods: In this study, ten titanium implants of Immediateload SA-CH have been introduced instead of teeth in the upper and lower frontal area, (extracted because of infection or agenesis) with 1 year of follow-up with perfect healing of the interincisive papilla. Results: Thanks to the results achieved, that is osteointegration, minimal crestal bone resorption, good interincisive papilla maintained in the esthetic zone, it is clear how the conometric connection and the monophasic implant are an excellent prosthetic solution minimizing the effects of flat-to-flat connections. Conclusion: From the observed results, it has been highlighted that Immediateload Company appears to have two perfect solutions (conometric connection and monophasic fixture) to be used in esthetic area like lateral upper incisors.
