Hi guys   I've taken your PRF course and use it routinely with great success!  I've also taken your soft tissue grafting course, another great course as usual, although that was before PRF days.  (I'm really aging myself here!  haha)   Anyways, I'm wondering how you go about incorporating PRF into your soft tissue surgeries, in particular alloderm tunnel grafting, which is the technique I use most often.  I'm ass...

  I extracted a tooth 2 weeks ago, and the patient wants a single tooth replacement.  Do you think it needs to wait before we do this?  I have received a taper kit from Shawn, and I'm ready to go... what about placement? would you put it in the distal root space, or move it more mesial?  I gather a good approach is to prep it for 5 mm, then go to 6mm if you get a spinner. Is this a good strategy?  Also, how...

Hi Faculty Members,   I'm posting an x-ray of this implant.  I believe it is a 3.0 one piece biohorizon.  The porcelain chipped off and there was an open contact as well.  My plan was to remove the crown and then take a new impression.  Lo and behold, I realized too late that this implant was one piece.   Now my only option is to remove this implant and hopefully place another.  I'm thinking that I will graf...
