Dr. Hayes DDS 2019 Patient Care Advances – Including PRF
Posted By: admin
One of the things that makes our Lafayette, Colorado practice unique is our continual incorporation of leading patient care strategies. From investments in new technology to adjusting surgical techniques for gentler care, oral surgery — and dentistry in general — is always evolving.
Take Platelet Rich Fibrin — or PRF — treatments as an example. Many people have heard about “PRP” techniques before, so PRF isn’t too much of a different concept to grasp.
With a PRF treatment, we take the patient’s own blood sample right here in our Lafayette office. From there, it’s spun down so that it isolates the healing and growth factors from the rest of the blood particles. Dr. Hayes, DDS then takes the platelet rich fibrin and puts it right back into your body, at the site of your surgery. Especially if it’s an area involving grafts, soft tissue healing, or to prevent a dry socket after a tooth extraction.
When you have PRF incorporated into your graft, wisdom tooth removal, or other oral surgery, you’ll see faster healing and recovery times. Plus, there’s no risk of disease because the PRF comes from your own body.
If you’re older than the traditional wisdom tooth patient, say, someone in their 30s, 40’s or beyond, then PRF treatment is a great way to help you “bounce back” more quickly from your procedure. There is a significant decrease in the risk of dry socket when using PRF.
Plus, Dr. Hayes, DDS utilizes non-opioid pain management strategies combined with your PRF treatment, so that you don’t have to worry about the risks of using narcotics or having them in your home. In fact, most of our alternative pain relief procedures see fewer side effects than those using conventional methods.
