WHAT IS THE PRF TREATMENT?
If you are suffering from tooth pain, recessed gums, or exposed teeth roots, you may be deterred from getting treatment for fear of painful, lengthy surgical procedures. However, Advanced Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) offers the quick, efficient solution you need to protect and enhance your smile. This cutting-edge technology can help you regenerate damaged, recessed gums and achieve a strong, healthy smile.
If you are interested in learning more about the PRF treatment, do not wait to contact the CENTER for Advanced Periodontal and Implant Therapy in Los Angeles. Dr. Alexandre-Amir and Dr. Alina Krivitsky are board-certified periodontists with extensive training and experience in advanced-platelet rich fibrin treatments.
The advanced-platelet rich fibrin treatment requires only a small amount of the patient’s blood, which is placed in a centrifuge at the periodontist’s office to separate the plasma, white blood cells, platelets, and red blood cells. The white blood cells and platelets are used to create a membrane that is inserted into the gums near the recessed or damaged area. The fibrin membrane triggers the body’s natural healing process to achieve a faster, more efficient regrowth of gum tissue.
The PRF treatment can be used in a wide variety of periodontal surgical procedures, such as wisdom tooth removal, gum grafts, and tooth pockets. Unlike traditional gum grafts, the PRF treatment has a reduced risk of infection and improved recovery time.
