“One word frees us from all the weight and pain of life: That word is love” Sophocles.

I recently attended a continuing education conference in Nashville, TN. The main speaker was Dr. Robert Miller. His topic was on L-PRF which is leukocyte and platlet rich fibrin. In our practice we have been using L-PRF for about 4 years but not as extensively as we could have been. This miracle membrane is obtained when we draw a small quantity of blood from our patients, spin it in a centrifuge and then harvest the L-PRF membrane from the centrifuged bi-products. This membrane can be used in soft tissue and hard tissue defects. Its properties are related to the leukocytes chemotactic abilities.
The L-PRF membrane has growth factors that assist in accentuated wound repair and bone growth. This is helpful in enhancing all our implant, soft tissue, and bone regeneration surgeries. Should you or someone you love have questions about L-PRF please contact our office for a free consultation.
