Platelet Rich Fibrin
Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is a very safe and effective approach to the process of tissue regeneration and it has quickly become a valuable service to promote healing in many procedures related to dentistry and oral surgery, especially in aging and elderly patients.
PRF therapy is designed for patients to take advantage of their body’s natural ability to heal at a highly accelerated rate. During the body’s healing process, it sends different cell types, including platelets to the site of trauma to engage in the healing process. In PRF therapy, the patient has a simple blood draw that is then spun rapidly, which results in a concentration of platelets. This creates a heavily concentrated portion of the blood containing three to five times the number of growth factors found in normal blood.
Dr. Bacsa has specialized in this area and performed this procedure a great number of times and continues to have success for patients with this method. Call today to see how PRF can help in the success of restoring your oral health.
Do I need to have my blood drawn at another location for the appointment?
Is PRF safe?
Because we are using a product of your own body, this is a highly effective and safe procedure. There is extraordinarily little risk of having any adverse reactions. It has fast become a popular procedure by many other clinicians due to the regeneration properties it provides. One of the most common that you may have seen would be for hair growth and replacement.
