Title : Gum Drop Technique (GDT) - Root coverage procedure using superior biological growth factors Bio- PRF
The purpose of this course is to introduce a new biological approach involving superior blood derivatives Bio-PRF for root coverage, a less invasive technique with a faster healing, without having a donor site.
The Gum Drop Technique (GDT) is a modified VISTA technique using the patients own blood to treat receding gums. Blood derivatives might be the solution for our patients with strong beliefs regarding the use of cadaver skin membranes or animal products as well as religious affiliations. Bio materials and tissue engineered scaffolds are typically avascular by nature and the survival rate of the graft is directly correlated with blood supply which is the key component for regeneration. Angiogenesis induced by Bio-PRF leads to a better cellular function and contributes to wound healing. The large amount of growth factors from Bio-PRF together with periosteum and periodontal ligament osteopeogenitor cells stimulation will contribute to tissue repair and regeneration.
The procedure is performed using a small piercing instrument comparable with laparoscopic procedures in medical surgeries. The gums will advance " drop " towards your enamel where they belong.
The morbidity of Gum Drop Technique (GDT) is less and patient’s case acceptance is higher comparative with the traditional grafts.
