PRF-METHOD

Fast and natural regeneration after dental operations with the PRF method

The PRF (platelet-rich fibrin) method is an innovative concept for improving wound healing. The healing process after dental surgery normally takes up to two weeks. The PRF method has the advantage of significantly shortening the patient’s recovery time. The Urban Dentist uses the PRF method in Berlin to increase the patient’s comfort after surgery and to achieve even better results.

Q & A

HOW DOES THE INVISALIGN TREATMENT WORK?

Invisalign therapy is a clinically tested procedure in which the patient wears clear, removable plastic trays and thus misalignments of the teeth can be corrected. This works just as effectively as using traditional metal braces. The plastic splint is custom-made, ultra-thin, and can be removed at any time for eating and cleaning. At the beginning of the Invisalign treatment, the patient’s current dental situation is recorded via scan or impression. Based on this data, an individual treatment plan is created, including a 3D simulation of the result. This allows the patient to predict what the treatment result will look like even before the treatment

Based on the treatment plan, various plastic splints are made for the patient. Unlike fixed braces, Invisalign treatment is carried out with a variety of braces. The number of trays depends on the degree of misalignment and the patient’s individual treatment plan. As a rule, a patient receives about 12-30 dental splints. The dental splint must now be worn 22 hours a day and can be conveniently removed for eating, drinking or brushing teeth. After a week, the dental splint is changed and the next dental splint is inserted. In this way, the teeth are gradually moved into the correct position and the malocclusion is treated.

also called blood serum. The yellow portion is needed for wound healing, as it contains fibrinogen fibrin and cells responsible for wound healing. This portion is finally removed and processed into a membrane.

HOW DOES PRF WORK?

Once repair mechanisms occur in the body, many different complex systems in the body are activated. The blood provides these repair mechanisms. Think, for example, of injuries such as cuts or chronic diseases. Blood must get to the affected areas by forming vessels, increasing circulation

is increased and blood cells actively migrate to the affected site. This process is achieved by messenger substances that are found in the blood. So-called “scavenger cells in the blood, the monocysts, produce substances such as BMP (bone-forming protein) and are responsible for the defense against bacteria and viruses.
