Biological ExtractionsBiological dentistry focuses on the use of the safest, most biocompatible materials and techniques for optimal clinical outcomes and the long-term wellbeing of the patient. At Dr. Robertson and Redd Dental Health, serving patients from Calgary, Red Deer, Airdrie, Canmore, and nearby Alberta communities, our doctors, Kindal Robertson and James Redd are both experienced Doctors of Dental Surgery (DDS) who provide biological and holistic dentistry and successful treatments for the entire family.
When it comes to procedures like tooth extraction, our dental team believes that there is no better way to ensure successful outcomes than to use the patient's own natural growth factors to promote healing. Drs. Robertson and Redd employ a technique referred to as PRF, platelet rich fibrin, when they find it necessary to extract teeth.
The process involves a simple blood draw from the patient, which is put through a process to concentrate the platelets. After the extraction, the PRF is applied to the site of the incision. A patient's own blood supports the immune system. Research has shown that when this technique is used, there are many benefits, such as:
- Biological healing of the wound occurs in half the time
- Bone heals and rejuvenates
- Risk of infection is reduced
- Shorter recovery
- Significantly reduced discomfort and post-procedure pain
- Healing is done in the right place and in the right way
There is a connection between oral health and physical, systemic health. By avoiding materials or substances that may adversely impact a patient's long term wellness, and by using materials and treatments that support the patient's immune system, we can help our patients to achieve optimal total body health.
Drs. Robertson and Redd and our professional dental team provide a comprehensive array of biological, holistic, pediatric, family, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry, as well as prevention and treatment of gum disease, orthodontic alternatives like Invisalign.
