PLATELET FIBRIN THERAPY
Tooth loss and damage to the jaw bone and tissues are often challenging for your dentist during oral surgery or implant placement. Without enough support in the jaw bone, dental implants cannot be immediately stabilized and tissue healing can be a long process. The solution to these and other difficult situations is a new Platelet
Therapy created from your own blood. Leukocyte - Platelet Rich Fibrin (L-PRF) changes all the rules as it promotes healing and bone growth from within your own body Unlike other treatments that use artificial components, Platelet Therapy with L-PRF uses only your own blood. With a simple blood draw and an advanced technology protocol, L-PRF is individually made for you - from you. The end results are improved healing response and significantly less recovery time.
Frequently Ask Questions
What is L-PRF?
L-PRF stands for Leukocyte - Platelet Rich Fibrin. Leuko cytes are also known as white blood cells. They are part of
the immune system and are responsible for helping heal our bodies. Platelets are also blood cells. They are responsible for attracting healing cells, creating blood clots. They are also key cells for producing growth factors. Fibrin is another component of the blood that works with platelets to create blood clots.
How are L-PRF clots created?
L-PRF clots are first created by taking a small blood sample from you. The blood sample tubes are spun according to a specific process. This creates a matrix or blood clot. The matrix is then removed from the tube and placed in a device designed to compress the matrix to a desired thickness.
What is Platelet Fibrin Therapy?
Platelet Fibrin Therapy uses L-PRF clots to promote healing.
Is L-PRF painful?
It is as painless as a routine blood draw.
How does L-PRF work to heal?
L-PRF provides a concentrated release of healing proteins, creates a scaffolding to help direct healing and also forms a more efficient network for cells to communicate with other cells and tissues. Due to the high concentration of platelets and leukocytes within the L-PRF clot, the fibrin releases growth factors for up to14 days after placement. This is when the body is repairing itself and needs the extra help to heal.
Are there any side effects or complications from L-PRF?
L-PRF uses your own blood, with NO additive whatsover. Reducing the risk of allergy, or side effects because your own concentrated platelets, with their own unique healing abilities are simply re-introduced at the site of your extraction, implant placement or other surgical site.
What types of conditions are treated with L-PRF?
Currently L-PRF is being used for dental and oral maxillofacial surgical procedures, including dental implants, bone defects, extraction sockets, sinus and dental ridge augmentation, palatal defects, and maxillary bone atrophy.
