At California Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center, we understand that patients undergoing oral and facial surgery are often concerned about their recovery time. The healing period for every patient depends on a variety of factors, such as the type of procedure involved, if post-operative guidelines are followed, their body’s natural healing abilities, and more.
Thanks to the advances of science, we can assist your body’s healing process following your procedure by supplying a high concentration of growth-stimulating materials directly to the surgical site.
California Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center utilizes the power of Leukocyte Platelet-Rich Fibrin, or L-PRF, to enhance and accelerate the healing process. Taken at the beginning of the procedure, L-PRF is created from the patient’s own blood sample. When L-PRF is administered directly to the desired area, the amount of growth factors present in a normal blood sample increase three- to five-fold. These growth factors stimulate the natural healing process of your body by introducing an supply of blood to the area, which shortens overall healing time.
L-PRF can be used for many oral and facial surgery procedures, including bone and gum tissue grafting, implant surgery, sinus lifts, and more. In addition to a shortened healing time, patients who opt for L-PRF treatment tend to experience a reduced period of post-surgical pain and swelling.
