Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF)

Our goal at M&G Family Dentistry is to provide patients with the latest in advanced dental technology and services so their treatments are as safe and effective as they can be. We not only ensure this quality of service through our x-rays and state-of-the-art technology but by using Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) when needed to facilitate fast and safe healing after certain dental procedures.

Understanding the Importance of Having PRF Available from a Dentist Near You in Katy

A good analogy to use to help patients understand the importance of PRF in a dental practice is to imagine an oil change for their car. When you take your car in for a tune-up, they will remove the old oil and replace it with new oil. This is a way to ensure your car performs as best as possible.

A similar scenario can be said about oral surgery. When your tooth is removed, it’s important to replace the indentation that’s been left with something instead of just leaving it hollow. When PRF is used in the socket, there are a number of benefits to ensure that your healing will perform as best as possible. These include:

  • Reduce pain post-procedure
  • Faster healing time
  • Decreased opportunity for infection

It’s a Simple In-House Process Performed at the Time of Your Procedure

The process of obtaining PRF for your procedure is simple. We will use a small vial of your blood, which we collect prior to your treatment, and place it into a centrifuge, which converts it into three layers: a plasma layer, a red blood cell layer, and a PRF layer.

Because the PRF layer is rich in fibrin, platelets, white blood cells, and other nutrients to facilitate bone growth at the extraction site, it’s what will be used as one of the last steps in your procedure to ensure optimum healing with less pain than surgery without PRF treatment would have afforded.
