At Abbotsford Oral Surgery and Dental Implant Centre, we utilize platelet-rich fibrin, or PRF, in many types of bone and tissue grafting for dental implants. During this quick in-office procedure, a high concentration of PRF and growth-stimulating material is applied to the surgical site to enhance and accelerate the natural healing processes of your body. These powerful growth factors are created from platelets in your blood sample, which will be taken at the beginning of the procedure.
Patients who choose to utilize PRF tend to experience a shorter period of post-surgical pain and swelling. If you are interested in adding platelet-rich fibrin to your treatment to shorten your overall healing time, please contact us for a consultation with Dr. Esmail, where he will discuss your options and determine a plan for optimal healing.
Benefits of Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF)
There are many incredible advantages to utilizing platelet-rich fibrin in oral surgeries such as bone grafting for implants:
- Low risk. PRF is created from your own blood, therefore, there is no risk for disease transmission.
- Convenient. PRF can be generated from your own blood sample taken in our practice at the beginning of your surgical procedure.
- More efficient healing. The application of PRF/growth factors to your surgical area stimulates faster tissue regeneration.
- Value. PRF is harvested quickly and easily in the doctor’s office so there is no need to incur the expense of harvesting material from a blood bank.
Many patients are candidates for PRF. During your consultation appointment with Dr. Esmail, he will be able to determine if PRF is a treatment option that should be considered for you.
