Bone Grafting with Leukocyte-Platelet Rich Fibrin (L-PRF)
A common issue for patients considering a Dental Implant is the lack of sufficient jawbone density. This can be very important to support the implant with the utmost efficacy and safety. For qualified candidates, there is a new, highly advanced technique available to create a solid foundation for dental implants while helping to enhance their overall oral health.
Patterson Village Dentistry is pleased to offer a state of the art, all-natural, treatment procedure meant to promote bone regrowth and accelerated bone healing after Implant procedures and in the treatment of Gum Disease. This FDA cleared procedure begins with Dr. Ali drawing a small amount of your blood and placing it in a centrifuge right here in our office. The centrifuge then spins the vials containing the blood at a specified angulation and high speed to create a condensed clot of fibrin. Once separated, this fibrin clot is flattened by a special process, effectively creating a thin, compressed matrix of highly concentrated healing factors.
Following the cleansing and sterilization of the treatment area, the PRF matrix and bone grafting material is carefully placed next to your existing jawbone structure, helping to stimulate the growth of new bone tissue around the graft for an ample amount of strength and density to successfully support a dental implant. Ultimately, L-PRF is both a holistic and biocompatible technique, often enabling qualified patients to achieve faster-healing and better-quality bone structure than ever before. In addition to bone grafting, the dentist can also utilize L-PRF to enhance sinus lift procedures for quicker healing and improved overall results. The safety of the procedure is enhanced considerably because a small amount of blood is harvested from the patient herself and there is no concern about disease transmission.
