Medical research has demonstrated that using our own blood cells, accelerates healing and tissue regeneration in all forms of surgery. Specifically, platelets, plasma, and white blood cells are used for this procedure. The growth factors that are carried by the platelets are the magic ingredients that are being used in numerous private office settings for wound healing and various surgical procedures, including oral surgery.
As we only use innovative procedures in our office, we routinely use platelet rich fibrin (PRF) in oral surgeries that involve hard and soft tissues, derived from the patient. The platelet rich fibrin is collected in the office in a short procedure which only takes a few minutes. The use of PRF in surgery ensures that the patient has the best opportunity to successfully heal from their surgery. For patients who have a history of complications arising from hard and soft tissue regenerations, PRF is instrumental in surgical success.
