Biological dentistry focuses on the use of the safest, most biocompatible materials and techniques employed for optimal clinical outcomes and the long-term wellbeing of the patient. At Living Wellness Dental, serving patients in the Calgary Region and across Canada, our doctors provide biological and holistic dentistry and successful treatments for the entire family.
In the unfortunate event that a tooth is determined to be beyond repair and must be extracted, we reduce the stress and make sure you are as comfortable as possible. Dr. Robertson, Dr. DeSanti and Dr. Redd employ a technique referred to as PlateletRich Fibrin (PRF), using biocompatible materials from the patient’s own blood, which expedites the healing process so that you can return quickly and comfortably to your personal interests and responsibilities.
PRF, Platelet Rich Fibrin Technique
The process involves a simple blood draw from the patient. The blood is put through a process that results in concentration of the platelets or PRF. The PRF is then applied to the extraction site. The patient’s own blood and immune system support soft tissue and bone regeneration and promote an accelerated and natural healing process. PRF results in the following:
- Biological healing of the wound occurring in as much as half the time
- Bone heals and rejuvenates
- Reduced bleeding
- Shorter recovery period
- Significantly reduced discomfort and post-procedure pain
- The area is healed with the right tissue in the right place
There is a connection between oral health, physical health, and systemic health. By avoiding materials or substances that may adversely impact a patient’s long-term wellness, and by using materials and treatments that support the patient’s physiology, we can help our patients to achieve optimal total body health.
Our professional team at Living Wellness Dental provides a comprehensive array of biological, holistic, pediatric, family, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry, as well as prevention and treatment of gum disease and orthodontic alternatives like Invisalign, and Bioblocorthotropics.
