Radiant Dental provides advanced healing procedures by incorporating Platelet Rich Fibrin, or PRF. The innovative and proven technique allows us to accelerate your healing after dental surgery with the best healing product available – your own cells.
What is Platelet Rich Fibrin?
PRF is a blood by-product which is extremely rich in platelets. Platelets are an essential component to the healing process, which encourage clot formation, release growth factors and stimulate your stem cells to produce new tissue at a faster rate.
PRF is a completely safe and proven treatment, which has been used for decades in hospitals to promote faster healing after surgery. Now, with new technology available, this innovative technique can be used to accelerate healing after dental procedures, such as implant surgery, endodontic treatment, gum surgery and more.
Benefits of PRF
Why should you consider PRF after oral surgery? There are a few important benefits of this healing treatment:
Lower Risk of Infection – When PRF is applied to the surgical site, it seals the wound and keeps out potential sources of infection
Faster Healing – The growth factors in PRF encourage faster tissue regeneration, shortening the recovery time after dental procedures
Safe and Convenient – PRF is extracted from a small amount of your own blood in a simple procedure.
How is Platelet Rich Fibrin Done?
Dr. Gill will first assess whether you are a candidate for PRF procedure. If so, a small amount of blood will be taken and spun is a centrifuge to separate the platelets, white blood cells, and fibrin from the red blood cells. This concentrated mixture will then be applied to your treatment site after your dental procedure to protect the wound and accelerate healing.
