Leukocyte Platelet Rich Fibrin (L-PRF) can be coordinated with just about every oral surgery procedure we offer: wisdom teeth, tooth extractions, implants, bone grafts, and sinus lifts. Using L-PRF speeds up how rapidly the surgical site heals by stimulating the body to jump start it’s normal processes. This causes your gums to close faster and it helps to create new bone quickly. L-PRF is not just a product, it is a product of YOU. A small amount of blood is drawn from your arm, similar to giving a sample at your physician’s office, and that blood is centrifuged (which is a fancy word for spinning the blood very fast) to concentrate the growth factors that induce the healing process into a clot.
The clot can be used by itself, mixed into bone grafts, or as a covering to protect the surgical site. This clot is entirely you, so you cannot be allergic and it accelerates and boosts the healing process.
