A biological approach to dentistry focuses on the use of the innocuous, biocompatible materials and techniques employed for optimal clinical outcomes and the long-term wellbeing of the treated client. At Living Wellness Dental Northland, serving clients in the Calgary Region and from across Canada, our doctors provide successful biological and holistic dental 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. DeSanti, Dr. Robertson, and Dr. Redd employ a technique referred to as Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF), using biocompatible materials from the client’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 client. 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 client’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 little as half the time
- Bone healing and rejuvenation
- Reduced bleeding
- Shorter recovery period
- Significantly reduced discomfort and post-procedure pain
- Localized healing 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 client’s long-term wellness, and by using materials and treatments that support the client’s physiology, we can help them to achieve optimal total body health.
Our professional team at Living Wellness Dental Northland 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 Biobloc Orthotropics.
