TEXARKANA, Texas, May 9, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Dr. Alejandro Kovacs, a dual board-certified
Plasma Rich Fibrin (PRF) is a substance derived from the patient's own blood that aids in the healing of the hard and soft tissues. Blood drawn from a patient is placed in a centrifuge where it is spun to separate into three layers: red blood cells, acellular plasma, and plasma rich fibrin. Using advanced technology, this process is simple and is completed while the patient waits comfortably in the dentist's chair.
PRF contains special compounds that aid in healing, including growth factors that regenerate new bone and soft tissue growth. Because PRF is taken from the patient's own blood, there is minimal risk of rejection or transmission of disease. PRF used in treatments like bone grafting provides many benefits for patients. In addition to accelerating hard and soft tissue healing, PRF stops bleeding at the treatment site, decreases swelling and pain during recovery, and helps protect the area from infection.
Bone grafting is the process of rebuilding the density and volume of the jaw bone after it has resorbed due to tooth loss. Using PRF, the bone grafting and healing process is accelerated so dental implants can be received sooner. Dental implants are the only permanent tooth replacement and can return patients to a state of improved dental function, oral health, and overall confidence and wellbeing.
