What is Platelet-Rich Fibrin?
Dr. Pechak obtains PRF by drawing a small amount of your own blood. He processes your blood in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets and their growth factors. The resulting PRF is used during a variety of treatments to stimulate healing.
How is PRF used in dental procedures?
Dr. Pechak uses PRF for many procedures, including:
Immediately following a tooth extraction, Dr. Pechak fills the area where the tooth was with PRF. The compound seals the area and promotes advanced healing. PRF’s elastic and clotting properties help reduce swelling and inflammation after your extraction.
PRF helps when Dr. Pechak does bone grafts to restore bone integrity and heal defects. Using PRF results in much faster bone regeneration and growth.
PRF is very effective in reducing the healing time following many types of gum grafts, Patients many times report less swelling and discomfort.
Using PRF during dental implant surgery causes the implant to better anchor into your jaw. It also improves the healing at the implant site and boosts the implant’s stability.
What are the benefits of PRF?
PRF stimulates your body’s natural healing ability. It encourages your body to rush new cells to the wound to start the healing process.
The concentrated platelets in PRF help you form blood clots that are necessary to heal after any surgical procedure.. PRF also releases growth factors into the wound to assist your tissue in repairing itself.
PRF is safe because it’s derived from your own blood. You don’t have to worry about getting a disease from donor tissue or blood or having a bad reaction.
PRF is easy to make. The blood draw and PRP prep take about 10 minutes. PRP is also budget-friendly. The blood is drawn in the office of Perio & Implant Center of Monterey Bay and the Silicon Valley, so there are no extra lab expenses.
Treatment with PRF is straightforward and quick, especially considering the healing benefits it provides.
