Accelerating Healing After Surgery

Enjoy a Fast, Comfortable Return to Health

Aside from wanting a pleasant surgical experience, the greatest desire of our patients is the assurance of a faster and more comfortable recovery. We incorporate many advanced technologies into our treatments, which provide a more minimally invasive surgery, less swelling after surgery and faster healing overall. However, we go one step further by incorporating platelet rich fibrin, an advanced healing technique that leverages your own body’s natural responses to accelerate healing after surgery. With dental implants, Advanced healing in Greensburg and Monroeville, PA offers significantly reduced time between bone grafting and the surgical placement of implants—getting you to your new, healthy smile in less time.

How Platelet Rich Fibrin Works

Platelet rich fibrin (PRF) is a living biomaterial derived from your own blood. To get platelet rich fibrin, we first take a sample of your blood, which is then spun in a centrifuge. This separates the different parts of the blood, and after a few minutes, a thick, gel-like membrane forms. For bone grafting procedures, we mix this membrane with bone material and place it at the site of the graft. We will add a second platelet rich fibrin membrane or a collagen membrane over the grafted area before suturing the gum tissue back in place. Platelet rich fibrin, often called an “optimized blood-clot,” gradually releases growth factors that will help the surgical site heal at a greatly accelerated rate by stimulating tissue healing and regeneration.

The Benefits of PRF-Infused Treatment

  • Faster, healthier healing after surgery
  • Stimulates new tissue regeneration
  • Produced while you wait in the chair
  • No risk of infection or rejection
  • No contraindications for patients
