A new technological trend has surfaced in recent years, producing faster healing and tissue regeneration than ever before. Advanced-Platelet Rich Fibrin (A-PRF) is a revolutionary technique that improves the success rate of surgical procedures involving soft and hard tissue.
A-PRF is a therapeutic composition crafted from a small sample of the patient’s blood. This substance contains platelets, which provide a natural source of fibrin, a protein used in the clotting process; and growth factors, which increase the speed and quality of healing.
Dr. Bram uses A-PRF as a natural stimulant for the growth of bone and soft tissue, decreasing patient’s chair-time and reducing the pain associated with some dental procedures.
Dr. Bram is proud to offer advanced platelet-rich fibrin to support and promote healing after surgical procedures. Some of the potential benefits of A-PRF are as follows:
Before you decide if A-PRF is right for your situation, we recommend scheduling a consultation with Dr. Bram. By discussing your medical history and your smile-aspirations, he’ll determine if you’re a good candidate. Once Dr. Bram clears you, we’ll begin the process during your surgical procedure.
Before or during surgery, Dr. Bram will remove a small sample of your blood. He’ll then use a centrifuge to separate the blood into three layers: red blood cells, plasma, and platelet-containing white blood cells.
After extracting the composition of platelets, Dr. Bram will apply it to the surgical site, promoting healing and greater treatment success.
