Advanced Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF)

Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is a treatment used in various medical and dental procedures to promote tissue healing and regeneration. PRF is derived from the patient's own blood and contains a high concentration of platelets, growth factors, and other bioactive proteins that play a crucial role in tissue repair.

The PRF preparation process involves taking a small amount of the patient's blood and centrifuging it to separate the different components. The resulting PRF clot is rich in platelets and fibrin, which form a gel-like substance that can be applied directly to the treatment site.

In dentistry, PRF is commonly used in procedures such as dental implant placement, bone grafting, and periodontal surgery to enhance healing and improve treatment outcomes. PRF can help accelerate the healing process, reduce inflammation, and promote the formation of new blood vessels and bone tissue.

PRF is considered safe because it is derived from the patient's own blood, reducing the risk of allergic reactions or transmission of infections. However, like any medical procedure, there are risks and potential complications associated with PRF treatment, which should be discussed with your healthcare provider before undergoing the procedure.

CBCT stands for Cone Beam Computed Tomography. It is a special type of X-ray machine used in situations where regular dental or facial X-rays are not sufficient. CBCT uses a cone-shaped X-ray beam to create a 3D image of the dental structures, soft tissues, nerve paths, and bone in the craniofacial region in a single scan.

CBCT is commonly used for:

  1. Implant Planning: CBCT scans provide detailed images that help in planning the placement of dental implants, ensuring they are placed in the optimal position for stability and function.
  2. Surgical Planning: CBCT scans are used in planning and evaluating surgical procedures such as impacted tooth removal, jaw surgery, and bone grafting.

Guided Dental Implant Surgery

Guided dental implant surgery, also known as computer-guided implant surgery or guided implant placement, is a technique used to precisely place dental implants using computer technology and 3D imaging. This technology allows for more accurate implant placement, leading to better outcomes and reduced risk of complications.

The process of guided dental implant surgery typically involves the following steps:

  • CT Scan: A cone beam CT scan is taken of the patient's jaw to create a 3D image of the bone structure and surrounding anatomy.
  • Virtual Planning: Using specialized software, the dentist or oral surgeon can plan the implant placement virtually, taking into account the ideal position, angle, and depth for each implant.
  • Fabrication of Surgical Guide: A surgical guide, also known as a stent, is fabricated based on the virtual plan. The surgical guide is a custom-made device that fits over the patient's teeth or gums and has holes or channels that guide the implant placement.
  • Surgical Procedure: During the actual surgery, the surgical guide is placed in the patient's mouth, and the implants are placed through the guide according to the pre-determined plan.
  • Follow-Up: After the implants are placed, the patient is monitored during the healing process to ensure proper integration of the implants with the bone.

Intraoral Scanner

An intraoral scanner is a digital scanning device used in dentistry to create detailed 3D images of the teeth and oral structures. It is used as an alternative to traditional dental impressions, which involve using a putty-like material to create molds of the teeth.

Intraoral scanners offer several advantages over traditional dental impressions, including increased accuracy, faster turnaround times, and improved patient comfort. They also allow for easier communication between the dental team and the dental laboratory, leading to better treatment outcomes.

Low Exposure Dental Radiology

Low-exposure dental radiology refers to the use of dental X-ray techniques that minimize the amount of radiation exposure to the patient. Dental X-rays are important for diagnosing and monitoring oral health conditions, but it is essential to minimize radiation exposure, especially for routine procedures.
