Extractions with Ozone, Laser and PRF

Extraction with Ozone,Laser and PRF

Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is a process whereby blood is drawn and spun in a centrifuge, which separates out portions of the blood into including platelets (which stop bleeding), white blood cells (which fight infection) and growth factor (which promote healing), among others. These cells are then injected directly into affected areas of the mouth to promote faster healing and to increase blood flow to these areas. The PFR is derived from your own blood, so biocompatibility is guaranteed. No gelling agents are needed, and no synthetic or animal derived products are used. It is a well tested replacement for the “non-native” materials such as bovine or coral. It is 100% natural to the patient.

Some dental uses of the PRF process include treatment of:

  • Bone Defects
  • Extraction Sockets
  • Sinus and Dental Ridge Augmentation
  • Palatal Defects
  • Maxillary Bone Atrophy

Benefits of PRF Treatment in Tooth Extraction Sites:

  • Faster Bone Healing
  • Less Pain after Tooth Extractions
  • Decreased Swelling During Healing
  • Decreased Chance of Dry Socket and Bone Infection
  • Increased early blood supply to Tooth Extraction Socket

The most common post-extraction complications are pain, discomfort, swelling and development of dry socket. Dry socket develops when the blood clot in a healing tooth extraction site dislodges from the tooth extraction socket soon after extraction of teeth. Clot displacement is associated with lysis of fibrin and delayed wound healing. The Laser and  PRF with ozone reduces the chance of dry sockets and can decrease discomfort and promote healing. I often recommend PRF with dental surgeries to achieve optimal healing.
