The Use of Platelet-Rich Fibrin for Surgery and Facials
Dr. Glenn MacFarlane of The Center for Holistic Dental Medicine is a professional who focuses on more holistic ways to help patients achieve and maintain their oral health and the wellness of the entire body. He provides services with safety and biocompatibility in mind, including the use of PRF, or “platelet-rich fibrin.” Patients of Red Bank, New Jersey, often have questions about these injections and how they are used in our dental practice.
What is Platelet-Rich Fibrin?
The use of platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is a promising new treatment for various dental and facial procedures. PRF is derived from the patient’s blood and contains a high concentration of platelets and growth factors. These growth factors promote healing and tissue regeneration, making PRF an ideal treatment for many dental procedures available at The Center for Holistic Dental Medicine.
Why Use PRF?
PRF, used during dental procedures and facial treatments, helps the body heal more quickly and efficiently. The platelets in PRF release growth factors that promote tissue regeneration, wound healing and collagen production. Because the PRF is your own, it is a natural and holistic way to heal.
What Can Platelet-Rich Fibrin Be Used For?
PRF is effective in various dental procedures, including tooth extractions, bone grafting, periodontal surgery, and dental implants. PRF can also be used for facials to improve skin tone and texture. PRF, because it comes from your own blood, will facilitate faster healing and more esthetic results. PRF has been utilized for years in the field of medicine and continues to grow in popularity as patients see the benefit of using their own blood to their advantage—eliminating the risk of allergic reactions to other products or medications.
