SmileCode Dental is pleased to offer Platelet Rich Fibrin therapy. This relatively new therapy is a revolutionary all-natural way to successfully help promote healing in patients undergoing a variety of dental procedures.

What is Platelet Rich Fibrin?

Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) is a substance found and extracted from our own blood that is rich in platelets and white blood cells. Since it is made up entirely of our own cells, it is completely compatible with our own body. It possesses amazing natural healing properties to aid in healing and pain management.

Benefits of Platelet Rich Fibrin

  • It possesses amazing natural healing properties for surgeries such as extractions, implants and grafts, helping to speed up the healing process and helping to heal wounds better than if the wound were left to heal on its own
  • It is completely in line with a holistic approach to oral health
  • There is NO risk of rejection because it is your body’s own concentrated material
  • Has been scientifically proven to enhance and improve your body’s own healing, decreasing your chances of having postoperative complications

What is the PRF Process?

The process involves extracting a small amount of the patient’s own blood, much like any standard blood test, and then harvesting the cells, proteins, growth factors and hormones that your body needs to heal. After the small sample is taken, the vile of blood is placed in a centrifuge, which spins the vile of blood at 3000 rpm for approximately 10 minutes. This spinning process forces the blood to separate into three layers; plasma at the top, red blood cells in the bottom, and fibrin clot in between. The PRF is then placed exactly where it is needed – to the surgical area. This will expedite healing and decrease the amount of discomfort following surgery.
PRF is just one way that SmileCode Dental is able to provide comprehensive and effective care to our patients. This revolutionary treatment can help promote accelerated healing and tissue regeneration after oral surgery. If you have any questions about PRF, or would like to schedule an appointment, please give SmileCode Dental a call today.
