Platelet Rich Fibrin May Accelerate Healing
- Posted on: Jan 18 2021
When we have a dental procedure, it is natural to be curious about factors such as healing time. After all, we all lead busy lives and many of us don’t have a lot of downtime. Thankfully, there are things that can aid healing and speed up the process, so we aren’t left in discomfort longer than we need to be.
One such way we can accelerate the healing process is by something called platelet rich fibrin, or PRF. Platelet rich fibrin is extracted from your own blood, and can then be injected back into the body at the site of your procedure, helping to accelerate the body’s own healing process.
Best of all, because PRF is taken from your own body, it will not be rejected or cause any adverse reactions when injected.
It works by using platelets in the blood in a way similar to PRP, or platelet rich plasma, only in the case of PRF, there are more platelets available to speed healing, thus making the healing process a lot faster than even PRP might.
Platelet rich fibrin has many uses, including in many skincare applications. It is also used to heal sports injuries in athletes, and can even be used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In dentistry, we often use platelet rich fibrin to assist in the healing of many oral health procedures such as bone grafting and gum regeneration. This helps the healing process by speeding it up, which gets you the results you want, faster.
Platelet rich fibrin can be an excellent option for your procedure, so be sure to discuss it with Dr. Peterson when you have your consultation. He can go over the benefits of this emerging medical advancement and determine whether or not it’s right for your individual healing.
