If you are going in for a surgical or maxillofacial procedure at Rockstar Family Dental, Dr. Gina Salatino can give you L-PRF platelet therapy to help you heal more efficiently using your own blood cells. Our dentist will take a blood sample, spin it into a blood clot using special technology and then place the clot in the surgery site. The blood clot will release your own body’s natural healing proteins, helping your body heal more quickly with its own resources. Call 916-771-7873 to schedule a consultation, and learn more about L-PRF platelet therapy in Rocklin, California!

L-PRF stands for leukocyte-platelet-rich fibrin. Leukocytes are commonly known as white blood cells that are part of the immune system that help heal the body. Platelets are blood cells responsible for creating blood clots and producing growth factors. Fibrin is also another component that works with platelets to create blood clots.

Once Dr. Salatino has taken a blood sample, she will spin your blood in a centrifuge machine. This allows the blood to separate and concentrate important cells and proteins. We can also add different biomaterials based on your needs (for example, if you have suffered severe bone loss, our dentist can add bone growth material to promote natural bone regeneration).

Once the blood clot has been created, Dr. Salatino will place the blood clot in the surgery site. Your body will naturally incorporate the blood clot during the healing process, releasing and reintroducing your own healing proteins. This reduces the risk of allergies or side effects to foreign materials and makes the healing process much faster.

If you are interested in this type of therapy, we encourage you to call our office for more information. Our dentist will be happy to answer any questions you have.
