Our experienced dentist may use platelet-rich fibrin to help speed up your healing process after oral surgery procedures. By using platelet-rich fibrin, we can accelerate the regeneration of tissue in a completely safe, non-invasive and non-chemical way. This treatment is especially helpful in procedures such as bone grafting and implant placement.
How Can Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) Improve My Dental Implant Experience?
Recovering from oral surgery just got a lot easier with PRF. Though this treatment has been used for years in other medical fields, it is new to dentistry. For patients who qualify, the process is simple. All you need to do is give us a small blood sample. We will use that sample to concentrate blood platelets that contain a specific growth factor. After your procedure, Dr. Steven Airey will apply your own PRF to the wound, which will promote faster and more comfortable healing after a dental implant is placed. We can use PRF in other dental procedures as well, like bone grafting, bone repair and fistula repair.
We want you to have a healthy smile that lets you eat normally again, which is why we offer different options to replace missing teeth. But if you want a beautiful, long-lasting way to do that, dental implants could be your best bet.
