Oral Surgery with PRF

Much of the medical field has been conditioned to treat pain and injuries at the symptom level with medication. However, new discoveries and technological advancements have enabled medical professionals to use their own body’s healing properties to treat a wide range of conditions. Treatment with PRF is a prime example of how we can help you using your biology. Learn more about how Dental Healing Arts is helping patients using PRF!

What is PRF?

PRF stands for platelet-rich fibrin, a platelet concentrate that contains a high concentration of stem cells, healthy cells and growth factors without the red blood cells. We obtain PRF by collecting a small amount of blood and spinning it at a low velocity in a centrifuge. This process separates the blood’s healing elements from the red blood cells which are then reinserted in the surgical wound where you need them most.

What are the Uses of PRF?

In dentistry, there are several applications for PRF. Fibrin is a scaffold onto which the platelets in your blood bind. Once these platelets take hold, they release growth factors that promotes cellular regeneration and wound healing. By precisely placing stem cells, healing factors and a wound scaffold, PRF promotes faster healing and wound stabilization in extraction sites, bone defects or plainly, in areas where the tissues just do not want to heal.  

Using PRF kickstarts this process in other parts of your body. This means PRF can be used to expedite healing not only after dental surgery, but it has medical applications and can be used as an anti-aging stimulant, injected into various joints or placed over hard to heal diabetic wounds.    

What are the Benefits of PRF Treatment?  

  • Provides a bulk of growth and healing factors into the wound
  • Speeds up the healing process  
  • Reduces dry socket after extractions
  • Reverses the effects of aging
  • Natural and safe, no chemical additives
