Toronto, ON (PRWEB) December 03, 2014
Studio B Dental, a dental office that provides a variety of dental services, continues to provide patients with the latest advances in dental technology with Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). PRF and PRP have been successful in alleviating pain following treatment, and can accelerate the natural healing process. PRF and PRP are exceptionally platelet-rich by-products of the blood. These platelets are not only essential for blood clotting, but also release growth factors that speed up the healing process. Using special techniques, PRF/PRP can be used in bone grafting procedures for implants, bone and/or fistula repair, and soft tissue recovery.
Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) have been used to successfully treat high profile athletes following complex sports injuries. The proven efficacy of PRF and PRP treatment make it a viable alternative for athletes, especially because it accelerates the healing process and uses the patients’ own tissue to regenerate cartilage, muscle or tendon. Professional athletes, Kobe Bryant and Alex Rodriguez have both travelled to Germany to receive PRP treatment and acknowledge how the procedure has enhanced their performance. The benefits of blood therapy have also been documented on CTV, CNN, The New York Times and other media networks.
In addition to expediting the post-treatment healing process, there are many benefits of PRF and PRP. The vast majority of patients who have used PRF/PRP in conjunction with treatment have reported greater comfort following their procedures. There is a lower risk of infection because the treatment area is sealed and protected from infectious agents. The PRF/PRP growth factors help increase the speed at which tissue regenerates, which again decreases the risk of complications. Finally, because the blood that is used in the treatment belongs to the patient, there are no issues of foreign infections. The amount of blood needed for such a procedure is minimal and can easily be drawn during a routine outpatient procedure. Following a PRF or PRP procedure, rest is recommended, however many patients are able to return to work and normal activities shortly following the treatment.
