How is PRF used in dentistry?
At Cooper Dental Group, we focus on ensuring patients have access to safe and effective treatments for reaching and maintaining oral health and wellness. When certain procedures are performed, our team in Ormond Beach, Florida, may encourage patients to consider the integration of PRF into their upcoming surgeries and treatments.
What is PRF?
PRF stands for platelet-rich fibrin. It is a form of fibrin produced from the patient’s blood. It is used to facilitate faster healing and can be incorporated into oral surgery and other procedures performed by the team at Cooper Dental Group. Integrating PRF into dental procedures is a great way to improve your experience in the dental chair!
How is platelet-rich fibrin used in dentistry?
PRF treatment in dentistry enhances healing and promotes the regeneration of teeth and gums. Platelet-rich fibrin is applied directly to the affected area to accelerate tissue repair, increasing the body’s natural healing ability. To ensure a successful treatment process, your dentist at Cooper Dental Group may use PRF as an adjunct therapy or as part of a comprehensive treatment plan.
What procedures can PRF be integrated into?
Platelet-rich fibrin can be used in a variety of dental treatments, such as:
- Dental implant placement
- Gum grafting
- Periodontal surgery
- Root canal therapy
When placed around dental implants, PRF helps improve integration with surrounding tissues by creating a protective layer that encourages proper healing. In gum grafting procedures, PRF allows tissue regeneration and faster recovery times.
How do I learn more about PRF in dentistry?
Platelet-rich fibrin was initially developed for use in oral and maxillofacial surgery back in 2001, but it has become an excellent way for dentists to help facilitate faster healing and recovery from standard dental procedures.
