Experience Advanced Natural Healing in Dentistry
Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) has evolved significantly in the past two decades, becoming a pivotal force in enhancing natural healing within the dental field.
PRF involves drawing a patient's blood to collect platelets, contributing to accelerated healing and reduced pain and swelling in various dental procedures. It is particularly beneficial for dental implants, wisdom tooth extractions, and enhancing the structural connection between bone and implants.
The PRF Process
- Blood Collection: A vial of blood is drawn per injection site.
- Centrifuge Separation: The blood is spun in a centrifuge to isolate red blood cells, platelet-rich fibrin, and platelet-poor fibrin.
- Injection into Treatment Areas: PRF is injected into damaged or decaying areas, directly impacting tooth extraction and implant sites.
PRF Benefits in Dentistry:
- Enhanced Healing: PRF promotes faster tissue regeneration and synthesis, reducing the risk of post-procedural infections, complications, and discomfort.
- Lower Infection Risk: By sealing the wound and providing protection against infectious agents, PRF minimizes the risk of complications.
- Safety and Convenience: Utilizing the patient's blood eliminates concerns about disease transmission, ensuring a safe and convenient outpatient procedure.
When Is PRF Recommended?
PRF is now a common practice after various dental procedures, offering benefits such as:
- Lower Infection Risk: PRF seals the wound, reducing the risk of post-procedure infections.
- Accelerated Healing: Growth factors in PRF expedite tissue synthesis, fostering quicker tissue regeneration.
- Safety and Convenience: Drawing blood from the patient's own body ensures safety and convenience, making it a routine outpatient procedure.
What to Expect With PRF
Before scheduling the procedure, your dentist will assess your candidacy for PRF, ensuring optimal results. Patients with blood clotting disorders may not be suitable for this treatment.
During the procedure, a small blood sample is collected for the PRF process. Detailed care instructions will be provided post-procedure, tailored to the specific dental work performed.
