Platelet Rich Fibrin

Improved Comfort and Recovery with PRF Treatment

The well-being of every patient is always a top priority at Periodontal Associates. From the moment a patient has a seat in the chair to the follow-up care they receive after a procedure, the doctors employ state-of-the-art techniques and technology to ensure a successful outcome. Following surgical procedures, Drs. Ovadia and Tanur use platelet rich fibrin (PRF) made from a patient’s own blood to limit discomfort and speed the healing process. New Bio-PRF technology has been shown to be a highly effective tool to induce tissue regeneration.

Promoting Natural Healing

The body produces certain proteins and growth factors to help wounds heal. Over the last 30 years, medical science has developed ways to increase the effectiveness of this natural process. Bio-PRF technology gives dentists a powerful way to boost healing after surgery using a safe, natural alternative to artificial components.

PRF treatment uses proteins from the patient’s own blood to stimulate tissue growth at the cellular level, jumpstarting the patient’s recovery. Applying these growth factors has been proven to maximize the body’s ability to heal itself. “I use PRF in almost all my surgical procedures,” says Dr. Ovadia. “Using the patient’s own healing proteins to promote recovery is an effective, minimally invasive way to reduce discomfort and healing time.”

How PRF Treatment Works

The virtually painless procedure takes only a few minutes. A routine blood sample is spun in the Bio-PRF horizontal centrifugation system, separating the proteins that the body produces into an easily extracted platelet-rich layer. PRF made from this concentration of 100% chemical-free growth factors is applied to the surgical site. The result is reduced post-op pain and an accelerated healing process. PRF has even been shown to fight off potential infections.

Who Is a Candidate for Treatment With PRF?

Dr. Ovadia and Dr. Tanur use PRF as needed for their patients undergoing procedures such as dental implant placement, tooth extractions, gum grafting and bone grafting.

At one time, treatment with PRF was limited to a lucky few, for example professional athletes or celebrities who wanted to minimize healing time after surgery. At Periodontal Associates, you don’t have to be famous to receive the treatment; patients benefit from the doctors’ skill and expertise and the advanced technology available right in the office.

Experienced Dental Specialists

Drs. Tanur and Ovadia are board-certified periodontists—highly experienced in placing dental implants and in treatment of the gum and bone tissues that support the teeth. They have been providing friendly, expert treatment from their state-of-the-art office since 2001. “We always look out for our patients’ best interests,” say Dr. Tanur, “and we are dedicated to providing care that will improve their lives.”
