When placed in surgical sites, PRF releases natural healing proteins including growth factors that promote healing and regeneration of bone and gum cells. It is safe, simple and painless. The benefits are unlimited. It is the future of medicine, and you can experience the future now at Centre Dental.

PRF Treatment Q & A

PRF Treatment—Better Healing from Within

What makes this procedure so ideal for Dental surgeries? 

Oral surgeries are unique in that they expose the patient’s jaw bone, and bone has very little natural blood supply unlike other areas of the body.  When there is less blood supply there is also less ability to fight infection and to heal quickly. The Platelet Rich Fibrin layer that is extracted during centrifugation is rich in fibrin, platelets white blood cells and bone growth factors, helping compensate for that lack of natural blood supply.

Some of the benefits to PRF are:

  • Less Pain after dental surgeries
  • Decreased Swelling
  • Faster healing process for implants and wisdom tooth removal
  • Improved strength of bone integration to dental implants
  • Decreased chance of dry socket after tooth extractions.
