Platelet Rich Fibrin
Simple, Effective and 100% Autologous.
Platelet concentrates have been utilized in medicine for over 3 decades owing to their ability to rapidly secrete growth factors. They have gained tremendous momentum as a regenerative agent derived from autologous sources capable of stimulating tissue regeneration in a number of medical fields.
PRF provides the following benefits:
- Control of the immune response, stimulating it for more significant effect.
- Recruitment of stem cells
- Closure of the wound
- Source of cells and chemical components that aids the healing process throughout
- Improved quality, density, and volume of healed tissue is superior with PRF
- No additives are required during preparation
At our office, we take advantage of this technique in many regenerative procedures. PRF is used to aid in the regeneration of both hard and soft tissues. Through this process, the bones, gums, and other tissues can experience the greatest potential result.
An FDA-cleared laser treatment called the LANAP protocol offers a less painful, more successful treatment alternative to conventional surgery. LANAP=LAR is the only scientifically, research proven methodology that results in true periodontal regeneration, new bone growth and gum tissue reattachment. LANAP and LAR is accomplished with the PerioLase MVP-7. It is a free-running, variable pulsed Nd:YAG laser. The 7 variable pulse durations can be thought of as “different lasers” in one device as they have discrete and discriminating tissue interactions.
The LANAP=LAR treatment is one of the most successful protocols in treating gum disease because it can target the source of the inflammation without hurting or removing any healthy gum tissue, slow or stop attachment loss and decrease pocket depth, and allowing the body to recover from the chronic infection without the need for scalpel or sutures.
- Patient Benefits
- Less pain
- Less bleeding
- Less sensitivity
- Less gum loss
- Less swelling
- Very little downtime after treatment
- Less Post-op infections
- Promotes regeneration of supporting gum tissues
- Healing is perceived to be faster and more comfortable than conventional surgery
The patented ultrasonic microvibrations of the original PIEZOSURGERY® cuts bone – and nothing else. No soft tissue is damaged, which allows us to work with a precision that facilitates not only surgery itself, but reduces postoperative discomfort for your patients at the same time.
- soft tissue will be protected
- less swelling after surgery with PIEZOSURGERY®
- faster and better osseointegration after implant site preparation with PIEZOSURGERY®
- faster and less traumatic post-operative recover
Better image quality and accuracy
The cone beam CT zones in on a specific spot, allowing dentists to examine an area that is as small as a single tooth’s root. The 3D capabilities mean that the dentist can view what’s going on in the patient’s mouth from different angles for better diagnosis and a complete evaluation
A lower dose of radiation
The CBCT scan uses a lower dose of radiation than a regular CT scan. No radiation remains in the patient’s body after the scan. However, it is still important for a female patient to inform the dentist if she is pregnant so that the office can take precautions.
Quick and painless
A full-mouth scan often takes between 20 and 40 seconds, and the dentist needs less than 10 seconds to scan a specific area. A dentist can generate hundreds of images in a single scan, allowing him or her to get a comprehensive view of the patient’s mouth and teeth. Each scan can produce several views and angles that the dentist can manipulate to get a complete evaluation. The CBCT scan is also noninvasive, painless and accurate.
The benefits of cone beam CT scans make it a terrific option for implant dentistry as it ensures safe and predictable treatments. Some benefits of cone beam CT scans for dental implants include:
CBCT scans make it easy for the dentist to measure and localize the available jawbone. This makes it possible to do a virtual implant placement with accuracy and precision.
Dentists can use the CBCT and an optical scan to create a complete virtual model of the patient’s soft tissues, bones and teeth. This helps the dentist design the proper bite, reducing the risk of misaligned implants.
The dentist uses the CBCT scan to map out where the sensory nerves are to select the right implant length. This helps reduce the risk of nerve damage.
CBCT provides the dentist with an accurate picture of the location of the maxillary sinus. Therefore, the surgeon can select the right implant length to prevent implant penetration into the sinus.
The cone beam CT scan allows the dentist to select the right size of the implant for optimal stability and integration. This ensures the implant can meet the patients’ needs and serve the person for a long time.
