PRF / PRP / PRGF Dental Implants

Our Arlington, VA dental implant practice is proud to be one of the first and few oral surgery centers in the area to offer dental implants utilizing PRP, PRF, and PRGF. Platelet rich fibrin, platelet rich plasma, and platelet rich growth factors allow for quicker healing times following dental implant surgery.

PRP dental implant surgery not only initiates and promotes healing, it allows patients who may not have been candidates for dental implants in the past to undergo bone grafting with PRF and PRP to create proper jawbone density and speed up the recovery so that you can receive your dental implants quicker than before. To expedite the healing process, Dr. Pashapour offers PRF, PRP, and PRGF treatments for dental implants at his Arlington, VA location and guarantees the life of your dental implants.

What are the benefits of PRF, PRP, & PRGF for dental implant surgery?

PRF, PRP, and PRGF can help promote healing following dental implant surgery. Because PRF, PRP, and PRGF are biocompatible samples, there is no risk of your body reacting negatively to the treatment. Strong and durable, PRF, PRP, and PRGF samples are versatile and can be used in a variety of ways. Following dental implant surgery, PRF, PRP, and PRGF can be placed along the surgical sites. The samples of PRF, PRP, and PRGF will be activated by your body’s tissues, releasing healing growth factors.


What Are Platelets?

Platelets are small fragments of a cell that are found in blood samples. One of the main functions of platelets is to help the blood clot when the body is injured or cut. While blood cells have a round shape, platelets have a more jagged and irregular shape to them. When you get a cut, these jagged cell fragments are able to effectively travel to the site of the injury and help to form a clot, protecting your body from losing too much blood. When clotting the blood, platelets use sticky appendages to adhere themselves to a surface and form the clot. Platelets also send out a chemical signal that notifies other platelets to the injury, further clotting the damage and preventing blood loss.

What is PRF?

Platelet rich fibrin, which is simply referred to as PRF, is an autologous fibrin material, meaning that the fibrin material is created by using only the cells naturally found in your body. A sample of PRF is an excellent tool when performing surgery that helps promote your body’s natural healing cycle. PRF is a somewhat gel-like material that is firm enough to be sutured, which makes it an ideal matrix to use when promoting healing following dental implant surgery.

If you are undergoing dental implant surgery with PRF, a sample of your blood will be taken to create the PRF matrix. This blood is then spun down in a medical device known as a centrifuge. This helps separate the blood into its various components and creates a material that is rich in platelets. The concentration of platelets in a sample of PRF is typically 3-5 times more than what is found naturally in your blood. When PRF is used during dental implant surgery, the platelets in the sample are activated by the natural tissues of your body. This results in the sample of PRF sending out growth factors that will aid in the healing process following dental implant surgery.

What is PRP?

Similar to PRF, PRP, which is known as platelet rich plasma, is an autologous sample made from the components of your own blood. While PRF is a gelatinous material, PRP is a liquid sample of highly concentrated platelets. PRP is made by taking a sample of blood as if you were having a routine blood test. This sample is then placed into a centrifuge and spun down into its various components, which are the plasma, white blood cells and platelets, and red blood cells. The platelet rich plasma collected from your blood can be used to promote healing following your dental implant surgery in Arlington, VA.

What is PRGF?

PRGF, which stands for plasma rich in growth factors, is a sample that is produced from your own blood. A sample of blood is taken and then spun down in a centrifuge to create a sample that is rich in growth factors. PRGF is a versatile treatment that can help promote your body’s natural healing cycle. PRGF is biocompatible, which means there is no risk of your body reacting negatively to the PRGF sample because it is made from your body’s own cells.
