PRF RegenerationThe healing process depends on the body’s ability to create healthy new cells and restore tissues. PRF regeneration is a cutting-edge treatment that harnesses the healing power of your own body to speed healing after surgical treatments or to restore damaged tissues.
About PRF regenerationPRF is an acronym for Platelet Rich Fibrin, a substance created from the patient’s own blood platelets. The process is performed right here in our Los Angeles office. A very small amount of blood is drawn from the patient and placed into a centrifuge, which separates red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. A fibrin membrane is created from the platelets and white blood cells. This membrane is then applied to the area in need of healing. It triggers natural regenerative processes, and may be used in many types of procedures.
Benefits of PRFThe process is performed chairside, using a very specific protocol for reliable results. Because it is made from your own blood, it is natural, healthy, and completely biocompatible. It stimulates rapid tissue healing, particularly in the first week, which is especially important in surgical recovery.
This technique is often used in the treatment of gum (periodontal) disease. As infection spreads, it destroys periodontal tissues. By the time it reaches the advanced stage, there is typically significant gum recession and bone deterioration. Restoring those tissues is an important part of comprehensive treatment, and PRF makes the process faster and more effective. It also has a much faster healing time and better outcome as opposed to traditional gum surgery techniques.
The many applications of this advanced regenerative therapy include:
- Sinus lift procedures
- Various types of soft tissue grafting
- Bone augmentation treatment
- Correction of periodontal defects
- Healing of wounds and injuries
