Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 30, 2013
Alexandre-Amir Aalam, DDS, and Alina Krivitsky, DDS, at the CENTER for Advanced Periodontal & Implant Therapy are thrilled to announce a new, state-of-the-art procedure called advanced-platelet rich fibrin to help patients recover from oral surgery. The procedure involves using a small sample of the patient’s blood to create a thin platelet-rich fibrin layer that is inserted into the surgical site. The proteins within the fibrin greatly increase the body’s ability to recover and repair, reducing healing times and decreasing the likelihood of infections. As these wounds heal faster, it also decreases the risk that a patient will contract rare complications like a failed implant, failed grafting, and dry socket.
“We are extremely proud to be one of the first periodontal offices in the country to offer the advanced-platelet rich fibrin procedure to our patients,” says Dr. Aalam. “We are always interested in finding new, innovative ways to help our patients recover in the most timely and efficient manner. This procedure is relatively straightforward for patients and greatly increases their ability to recover quickly. Now, patients won’t have to experience as much pain and can be much more comfortable when undergoing oral surgery.”
Advanced-platelet rich fibrin is a technique used in a multitude of surgical procedures, including orthopedic surgery and heart surgery, but is relatively new to the oral surgery field. Even patients who undergo the most common periodontal procedures like gum grafts, bone defect surgery, sinus lifts, and extractions will benefit for this technique.
In the past, many patients let the fear of periodontal surgery prevent them from scheduling procedures they needed or desired. Fortunately, the advanced-platelet rich fibrin technique naturally enhances the body’s ability to heal itself. This incredible procedure makes even the most invasive oral surgeries significantly easier, faster, and less painful for the patient. Dr. Aalam is one of the only periodontists in the country to offer this type of cutting-edge procedure.
The advanced-platelet rich fibrin procedure improves a patient’s overall experience by not only reducing recovery time but also decreasing pain and swelling. Patients have much less to worry about and fewer barriers to gaining a beautiful smile and healthy mouth for the long term.
Dr. Alexandre-Amir Aalam and Dr. Alina Krivitsky are board certified periodontists specializing in dental implants and gum/tissue diseases. They both opened The Center, a periodontal office focused on providing patients with excellent and skilled care at affordable prices, with the goal of restoring oral health and aesthetic appearance. They are alumni of the prestigious Ostrow School of Dentistry at USC and are still heavily involved in academia and giving back to future periodontists at USC. They are also the only two board-certified periodontists in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles.
