  • Materials & Method
    • We used corticotomy associated BCGF on orthodontic patients with insufficient cortical bone coverage of the teeth roots.
    • All surgical procedures were performed under sedation and the corticotomy was performed only at the buccal aspects of both the maxilla and mandible.
    • The blood taken is performed by the anesthesiologist .
    • The blood obtained with vacuum flasks is processed through the cetrifuges VLAD.
    • After the corticotomy the bone surface it has been washed with autogenous serum and it has been cover with autogenous white Buffy coat (Cloud) + C34+-GFs,Trombocite and Red Buffy coat.
    • The bonding of the brackets was realized just before the surgery. The activation begin immediately after surgery and the routine activations were made every 2 weeks. 
    • The low dose 3D scan is done in the beginning and in the end of the treatment to control the amount of the bone around the roots of the teeth.
  • Results
    • The patients has been checked 2 day after surgery.
    • Post-operative period was presented with a light edema and generally the patients got use of painkiller only the first night, all due to the antidolorific and anti inflammatory properties of the BCGF elements.
    • Total treatment time was 4-8 months.
  • Conclusion
    • Corticotomy combined with the use of BCGF resulted on all the patients:
    • A short time of orthodontic treatment,
    • A painless and little edema on post operative period
    • A clinical and radiological visible improvement of the periodontal and gingival recessions of the patients teeth.
