Andrew Flipse, D.M.D. is pleased to offer Murfreesboro, TN patients regenerative therapy, such as L-PRF, to promote safe, effective healing. As a seasoned professional, Dr. Flipse has seen patients lose teeth from bone loss, difficult extractions, infections, and from waiting too long to see a dentist. He places a strong emphasis on preventive care and his desire is to help each of his patients improve their overall oral health with modern dental treatments. L-PRF (Leukocyte Platelet Rich Fibrin) therapy uses a patient's own leukocytes, platelets, and fibrin. By using your own growth factors, this treatment method reduces inflammation and aids in the healing of infection or surgical sites that are created with extractions, grafting, and dental implants. Call Implant & General Dentistry to learn more about this cutting-edge therapy and how it can help you.
An L-PRF treatment can help regenerate missing gum tissue to promote wound healing for men and women of all ages. During your initial consultation, Dr. Flipse will go over your unique needs and concerns to determine if L-PRF therapy is right for you. Applications include but are not limited to:
Sinus and dental ridge augmentations
Maxillary bone atrophy
L-PRF is essentially a bioactive "band-aid" that is created with your own blood and then placed in surgical sites to promote and speed up healing. A small sample of your blood is collected and then placed in the IntraSpin™ system, which acts like a centrifuge machine to separate and concentrate all the different components of your blood (Leukocytes, Platelets, and Fibrin). The result is a tissue-like clot or PRF membrane, which is then placed in your surgical site(s) to promote natural healing proteins for optimal recovery.
These growth factors are regenerative in nature and enhance both bone and soft tissue regeneration, which expedites your healing process, minimizing your discomfort, and increases your resistance to infection in the mouth. At the time of your L-PRF treatment, the growth factors are processed in the office in 12 – 18 minutes and delivered to the area of treatment with minimal post-surgical discomfort.
