Leukocyte-Platelet Rich Fibrin
By incorporating L-PRF (leukocyte-platelet rich fibrin) into our surgical procedures, we can enhance surgical results in our soft tissue and hard tissue regenerative procedures. We can be more successful growing bone for extraction sockets, ridge defects, and implant sites. Soft tissue regeneration includes periodontal (gum) loss from periodontal disease, root recession, or other sites of deficient soft tissue.
When you cut or bruise yourself, your own body mechanisms initiate and complete the healing process. This is all mediated by "growth factors" in your white blood cells. A clot is formed to control the loss of blood. Stem cells are called upon to create new capillaries to bring in blood to support and nourish the new cells that are regenerated to repair the damage. A phlebotomist draws your blood, and we place it into a special centrifuge to separate the growth factors in the white blood cells. We now have 10 to 15 times your normal concentration of growth factors to maximize your healing and immune response!
