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.
The establishment of dental schools and the development of dental techniques and tools contributed to the professionalization of modern dentistry. Today, dentistry has evolved into a specialized field of highly trained dental super specialists like Dr. Jeffrey Etess, leaving behind the days of barber shop tooth extractions forever.
Dr. Etess and his team set the highest standard of professional dental care for his patients. Bringing you state-of-the-art dental treatment along with next generation techniques and dental services implementing leading-edge dental protocols allowing our practice to offer patients what other dentists are unable to. Do NOT assume all dentistry is similar, it simply is not all the same.
One such necessary and advanced dental 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. The obtained PRF can then be used immediately, eliminating the need for animal commercial products and enhancing grafting materials.
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 in dentistry 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, bone grafting, and extraction socket preservation, where optimal tissue healing is crucial for successful outcomes to prevent the formation of dental cavitations.
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. This is especially advantageous in gum recession and periodontal bone loss corrective procedures around teeth and implants. PRF can also be used for sinus lift and jawbone augmentation to allow for the placement of implants if bone is needed as PRF enhances bone regeneration, improves soft tissue volume and quality, and reduces post-operative discomfort. 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.
