Heal faster with PRF

Platelet Rich fibrin or what is also known as ( L-PRF) is a by product of your own blood that is rich in platelets and Leucocytes (White Blood cells) present in a complex fibrin matrix to accelerate soft tissue and hard tissue healing. Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) was first pioneered by Dr. Joseph Choukroun who is a physician in France, practiced as cardiothoracic surgeon and an anesthesiologist.

What are the benefits of PRF?

  • Faster healing after wisdom teeth extraction and dental implant placement
  • Decreased chance of dry socket teeth extraction
  • Increased early blood supply to extraction site
  • Increased blood supply and stability to bone graft site for implant placement
  • Less pain and swelling after dental surgery

What to Expect?

PRF is a 100% natural procedure. PRF is a simple procedure that involves collecting a small amount of the patient own blood ( 2-4 small vials). This process is exactly the same as when blood is taking during a routine medical physical. The patient blood is placed in a centrifuge. Blood will then separates in to plasma fibrin from the red blood cells. The extracted Plasma rich fibrin is then used for multiple purposes such as:

  • In the extraction site to promote healing
  • With socket preservation after teeth extraction
  • For guided bone regeneration to prepare a site for implant placement
  • With dental implants to decrease implant healing time and decrease the chance of implant failure.
