When a bone graft is required for implant placement, the smoother and faster the healing process can proceed, the better. Platelet rich fibrin (PRF) can help this process.

Platelets are present in the blood. When blood is placed into a centrifuge for several minutes it divides into three layers. The top layer is called the acellular plasma layer. The bottom third is the red blood cell layer where all the red blood cells collect. This middle layer is the platelet rich fibrin layer. This middle layer is where platelets collect, and it is the part of the blood used in healing bone grafts and dental implant sites.

Platelet rich fibrin is also used to help extraction sites. In particular, it is used to help wisdom tooth extraction sites heal faster. PRF also has the advantages of limiting swelling and decreasing surgical pain in the case of implant preparation and wisdom tooth removal. When applied to the bone graft area of an implant site, PRF has been shown to improve the strength of the bone graft at the same time it increases healing speed.

How PRF Works

Bone is a material in the body that does not have a lot of blood supply. In the instance of a wisdom tooth extraction, usually, the site is left to heal on its own. Sometimes sutures are placed. Generally, the open socket is exposed to all types of bacteria from saliva, food and other contaminants. This can slow down the healing process. When PRF is added to the site, it protects the bone and actually increases healing capabilities.

When PRF is used between the bone graft and an implant, healing time is accelerated, and the chances of implant failure decrease. PRF stimulates the release of critical growth hormone factors that play a role in healing processes.

I will highly recommend Dr. Dalla. I found him to be very pleasant and highly professional. I had implants done and he did it so well that I had no discomfort. He is an excellent dentist specialist.

I went to Ora last month for a denture implant consultation, soon as I walked through the door I was greeted by the ladies in the front. My consultation went great Dr. Dalla was great, he listened to my concerns and explained what would be the best procedure for my situation. Also worked with my financial situation. I had all my teeth extracted and my dentures placed. Tia was so wonderful she did her best to calm me down and reassure me there was nothing to be nervous about. Before he started I expressed how nervous and scared I was he assured me I was in great hands and I was. The staff there is the best. I have a little discomfort but when I looked in the mirror for the first time a hour ago I was very very happy with my outcome. I still have to go back for the implants then I'll be finished. I want to thank the whole staff at Ora for giving me my confidence back in my smile.
