What is PRF and How Does it Improve Your Surgery?

Oral Surgery Patient

PRF is short for platelet rich fibrin, which is a rather new development that is growing in popularity throughout the dental industry. PRF is used to help patients recover from oral surgery more efficiently.

What is PRF and How Does It Work?

PRF is a blood concentrate that releases growth factors that speeds up bone and tissue regeneration and reduces post-operative pain.

Where Does PRF Come From?

Platelet rich fibrin works so well because it’s made by your own body.

Right before your oral surgery procedure, someone will draw a small vial of your blood and place it in a centrifuge that separates the different components, including the PRF particles. PRF is rich in fibrin, platelets and growth factors. No additives or preservatives of any kind are added back in, so since PRF is made from your own cells. You can rest assured knowing that there’s no risk of disease transmission or your body rejecting it.

How Is PRF Used In and In Which Dental Procedures

During and immediately after your oral surgery procedure, the PRF layer of your blood is placed strategically in oral areas and used to promote better healing.

PRF is commonly used when extracting teeth, as well as surgically placing dental implants, and soft tissue grafts. PRF is also incorporated during bone and/or sinus grafting to help protect and stabilize the materials that are used.

What Our Patients Say About Us

Even our patients who have been told in the past that they are not good candidates for dental implants have found options at our clinic.

  • Mindy W.

    This is a very welcoming center. Everyone seemed very competent and helpful. I had an oral biopsy today. No waiting. The staff were ready for me and all was in place. Dr. Yagoubian was warm , cheerful and I felt in extremely capable hands. I am so grateful I was referred to him. Sincerely, Mindy W.

  • Raj G.

    Dr. Yagoubian is excellent. I was in state for business when my wisdom tooth broke. I was lucky enough to find Dr. Yagoubian's office. Everyone there was professional and courteous. The procedure went smoothly. Dr. Y is highly skilled, meticulous, and a very personable health care provider (a rarity in the field, in my opinion). If you need an oral surgeon, I highly recommend him.

  • Chahab S.

    Dr Yagoubian is an excellent oral surgeon, supported by a very professional staff. They made the experience as stress-free as possible. Highly recommended.

  • Paul M.

    A positive experience from start to end. I got a sense that this was going to go well and it did. Two extractions, two implants, bone graft and removal of four part bridge. Leaving part of the bridge on one tooth. If there were 10stars they would be for Torrance oral surgery group and Dr. Alicia Wolf / Blanco Demtal Group for recommending Ben.
