Meet your hygienist, Shannon

What is PRF and what are the benefits?

Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) is used in many dental surgical procedures such as extractions and dental implants. PRF accelerates the healing process, decreases surgical pain and swelling for both dental implants and wisdom tooth extraction. 

What are some of the benefits of PRF?

  • Reduction in the risk of dry sockets 
  • Dramatic decrease in post-op time management
  • Autologous product
  • Enhanced soft tissue healing
  • Reduction in pain and bleeding

How does it work? 

A small quantity of blood is taken from the patient and then placed into the PRF centrifuge machine, where the blood is separated into red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. In a tooth extraction treatment or other dental procedure, PRF adds fortified blood back into the body and promotes healing in the site where it is most necessary. The grouping of platelets and growth factors have regenerative capabilities, and the healing of hard and soft tissue is observed to be faster and help the patient recover faster after tooth extraction.
