At Tucson Biological Dentistry, our skilled team of professionals believe in providing some of the latest, state-of-the-art services to improve the health and wellness of the smile and body. This includes treatment with L-PRF therapy for Tucson area patients.
What is L-PRF therapy?
L-PRF therapy is a way to speed healing. It uses special components of the blood such as leukocytes, growth factors, proteins, and platelets. They are used to heal hard and soft tissues within the mouth. This is best performed during tooth extractions and bone grafting. Utilizing this type of therapy can help in preservation of the socket and reduce the need for further treatment including root canal therapy with the revitalization of the dental pulp.
How is this done?
During a dental appointment, Dr. Jeanne Anne Krizman DMD MPH will draw a small amount of blood. This blood is then placed in a centrifuge which isolates the platelets and plasma. These are then introduced into the area of the surgical procedure to help with the stimulation of collagen production and facilitate faster healing. The entire process is done right in our dental practice and can reduce healing and recovery times for our patients.
Is this a new treatment?
Actually, no! L-PRF has been utilized in medical science for over twenty years, but it has more recently been introduced into dental treatments. It is biological, safe, and effective, making it a viable option for many of our patients.
