Butterman Dental PC now offers Advanced-Platelet Rich Fibrin treatment (A-PRF) for many implant and surgical procedures.

Utilizing a small sample of the patient’s own blood, this procedure produces a thin, durable layer of platelet-rich fibrin. The proteins in the fibrin encourage faster healing and reduce pain, swelling, and the likelihood of infection. In other words, A-PRF creates a more comfortable and less painful experience for the patient. A-PRF has been used in areas other than dentistry, including dermatology, orthopedics, heart surgery, and plastic surgery.

"I have been afraid of dentists all my life. It wasn’t until becoming a patient of Dr. Butterman’s that it changed. Dr. Butterman is a talented dentist. He is knowledgeable, considerate and gentle. His staff is also considerate and patient-oriented. Now, when I go to this dentist office I know I will laugh while my teeth get the best care."

Why A-PRF:

When a body has a wound, it heals by bringing blood to the wound site. Blood contains white blood cells from your immune system and many proteins that help with healing. The problem is that only a small amount of these cells are available in the blood, so a large volume of blood needs to pass through the wound site to stimulate healing. Because this takes a long time, injuries stay red and swollen as they heal. A-PRF speeds up the healing process by concentrating the healing properties of blood and placing them directly at the wound site.

Accelerated Healing Technology

A-PRF Procedure:

Prior to implant placement or other surgical procedure, we start by drawing a small amount of the patient’s blood, in the same manner as a blood draw for a physical. This blood is placed in a centrifuge that separates the blood into three individual components: plasma, red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. The white blood cells and platelets make up the PRF — the necessary component for wound healing. The PRF is placed directly into the surgical site. Having these concentrated wound-healing cells immediately available at the surgical site, accelerates the healing cycle and increases the patient’s rejuvenation abilities.

Benefits of A-PRF:

  • SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVES WOUND HEALING
  • REDUCES HEALING TIME, PAIN, AND INFECTION
  • DOES NOT ADD TO PROCEDURE TIME
  • USES PATIENT’S OWN BLOOD AS OPPOSED TO CADAVER MATERIALS, DRUGS, OR CHEMICALS
