Platelet Rich Fibrin or PRF
Wouldn’t you like to speed up your healing time and reduce your risk of infection and pain after a surgical tooth extraction? We can help you achieve this with our PRF experience and technology.
We use your own Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) in many dental surgical procedures such as tooth extractions, dental implants and gum tissue regeneration. During oral surgery, your jawbone is exposed and there is very little blood supply in this area as compared to other tissues in our bodies. In areas where there is less blood, your body has less ability to heal quickly and fewer defenses against infection.
At Denture Artistry – Implants – Crowns – Veneers, we place PRF into tooth extraction sites and implant sites. For example, when a dental extraction is performed, we will place your very own Platelet Rich Fibrin into the tooth extraction site. In the absence of the PRF, dental extractions sites are commonly left to heal open to the oral cavity. When PRF is placed into the extraction site, the PRF protects the site from infection and enriches the area with growth factor proteins that accelerate healing. In sites where implants are placed, the PRF occupies the space between the extraction site and the dental implant. Placement of PRF in dental implant sites decreases implant healing time and decreases the chance for dental implant failure.
Advantages of PRF
– Accelerated healing of bone and dental implants
– Less pain
– Decreased swelling
– Improved strength of bone integration to dental implants
– Decreased chance of dry socket and cavitation of the bone
– Increased early blood supply to tooth extraction socket
– Facilitates fast and proper healing of wisdom tooth extraction sites
