The CENTER for Advanced Periodontal & Implant Therapy now offers the RejuvaGum Lift™, also known as French Gum Rejuvenation™. Utilizing Advanced-Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF), this gum grafting procedure is performed by processing a small sample of the patient’s own blood to promote faster healing and regeneration of areas affected by recession of the gums. No tissue graft is taken from the roof of the mouth, which eliminates an often painful process and reduces downtime.
Dr. Amir-Alexandre Aalam is proud to be the first periodontist in the U.S. to have trained in and performed Advanced PRF treatments.
What is Advanced-Platelet Rich Fibrin?
Prior to the RejuvaGum Lift™ procedure, a patient will have his or her blood drawn and placed in a centrifuge to separate into three components: the plasma, red blood cells, and a small amount of white blood cells and platelets. The white blood cells and platelets are called the “buffy coat,” which also include regenerative growth factors, such as platelet derived growth factor (PDGF), transforming growth factor beta (TGF-B), and epithelial growth factor (EGF).
These growth factors are essential for increasing the body’s healing abilities and reducing the risk of infection. Dr. Aalam will take the advanced PRF (processed from the patient’s own blood) and immediately place it into the surgical site to improve the body’s natural healing process and achieve faster results.
Platelet rich fibrin technology has been used in dentistry for over ten years with great success. Platelet rich fibrin treatments have also received significant press in the sports medicine field and are also prevalent in other areas of the medical field. PRF treatment is widely used in heart surgery, orthopedics, oral and maxillofacial surgery, plastic surgery and dermatology.
Dr. Alexandre-Amir Aalam and Dr. Alina Krivitsky are the first periodontists in the US to be trained in and to perform these Advanced PRF treatments. The procedure may encourage patients who require gum recession treatment for recession of gums to undergo treatment as they learn that their gum recession can be corrected without the need for traditional gum grafting surgery.
