One of the most important aspects of dental treatment, especially oral surgery, is that healing occurs in an optimal way. Dr. Fallah does not leave this to chance. Patients who undergo certain procedures in our Carlsbad holistic dental office benefit from platelet-rich fibrin, a method of tissue regeneration. Platelet-rich plasma and platelet-rich fibrin, called PRF, is relatively new, dating back to 2001 and French physician Joseph Choukroun. His works were not published in English for another five years.
At this point, many people have heard of platelet-rich plasma, a substance "spun" from a person's own blood. While plasma is the liquid form of some of the blood's best components, platelet-rich fibrin is a gelatinous form of important growth factors that aid in the regeneration of healthy tissues. We make platelet rich fibrin in a state-of-the-art centrifuge in our office before we conduct procedures such as oral surgery.
The products that we process from the blood can be introduced into the surgical site immediately, encouraging faster healing of both hard and soft tissues. When we can hasten healing with the application of platelet-rich fibrin, we decrease the chance of failed grafting, failed implants, dry socket, and infection. Every person can benefit from use of fibrin from their own blood, especially those with acute or chronic conditions such as diabetes.
Dr. Fallah treats patients of varying degrees of oral health. Our holistic dental practice has been designed for comfort, efficiency, and the kind of care that achieves noticeable results. Platelet-rich fibrin is a technique through which we enhance the body's natural ability to heal and regenerate. Platelet-rich fibrin helps us achieve optimal results through better healing from dental surgeries without the need for donor cells, chemicals, or medicine.
