Another Leap Forward in Dental Healing: Supercharged Dental Healing

The origins of modern dentistry can be traced back to the historical connection between barbers and dental care. In the Middle Ages, barbers were not only responsible for cutting hair but also performed surgical procedures, including tooth extractions and bloodletting. This association continued into the 18th century when advancements in dental science luckily led to the separation of barbers and dentistry as distinct professions. Today, dentistry has evolved into a specialized field with highly trained professionals, emphasizing oral health and comprehensive dental care in safe and regulated settings.

With Dr. Etess, barber shop dentistry isn’t even a consideration! He and his team set the highest standard of professional dental care for his patients by providing mainstream dental treatments along with state-of-the-art dental services, implementing leading-edge protocols that other dentists are unable to offer.  

One such advanced protocol is Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF), a 100% biocompatible material derived from the patient’s own blood through a special blood centrifugation process to provide a natural source of stem cells, growth factors, and healing cytokines. Dr. Etess is a pioneer in PRF and one of the first surgical dentists in the metropolitan New York area to offer it.

One of the primary benefits of PRF is its role in promoting tissue regeneration and wound healing. When PRF is placed at the surgical site, it releases growth factors that stimulate cell proliferation, angiogenesis and collagen synthesis, accelerating the dental healing process. This is particularly beneficial in procedures like dental implant placement and bone grafting where optimal tissue healing is crucial for successful outcomes.  

Moreover, PRF has antibacterial properties that aid in reducing the risk of post-operative infections. The fibrin matrix of PRF acts as a barrier, preventing bacterial invasion and promoting a sterile environment for healing. Additionally, PRF can be combined with other biomaterials to enhance their efficacy, such as mixing PRF with bone graft materials for better integration and stability.
