About PRF Injections and TMJ

At the TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of Cleveland, we are dedicated to providing the most advanced and effective treatments for TMJ disorders and sleep-related issues. Platelet-Rich Fibrin Injections (PRF) are one of the cutting-edge services we offer, designed to help our patients find relief and healing from various oral and facial conditions. Below, we’ll explain what PRF is, how it can help, details about the treatment, and how our specialized team can assist you throughout the process.

What are Platelet-Rich Fibrin Injections (PRF)?

Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) is an innovative medical technology that utilizes a concentration of your own blood platelets and growth factors to promote natural tissue healing and regeneration. The process involves drawing a small amount of your blood, which is then processed in a centrifuge to separate platelets and fibrin from other blood components. The resulting PRF material is a potent and bioactive substance that can accelerate the body’s healing mechanisms.

How can PRF Injections help?

PRF Injections have shown remarkable potential in treating a wide range of oral and facial conditions. They can be particularly beneficial for patients experiencing:

  • TMJ Disorders: PRF injections can aid in reducing inflammation, stimulating tissue repair, and promoting healing in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). This can lead to decreased pain, improved jaw function, and enhanced overall oral health.
  • Facial Pain and Headaches: PRF injections may provide relief for chronic facial pain, headaches, and migraines by targeting the source of inflammation and encouraging tissue regeneration.
  • Dental Implant Support: For patients undergoing dental implant procedures, PRF injections can enhance the body’s ability to heal after surgery, resulting in improved implant success rates.
  • Periodontal (Gum) Health: PRF can be used to aid in the treatment of gum disease and support tissue regeneration after periodontal procedures.
  • Oral Surgery Recovery: PRF injections can expedite the healing process following various oral surgeries, such as tooth extractions and bone grafting.

    The Treatment Process

    When you visit our TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of Cleveland, our experienced team of specialists will conduct a thorough evaluation to determine if PRF injections are an appropriate treatment option for your specific condition. If PRF is recommended, the treatment process typically involves the following steps:

    • Consultation and Evaluation: Our team will discuss your medical history, perform a comprehensive examination, and assess your oral and facial condition to determine if PRF is suitable for you.
    • Blood Collection: A small amount of blood will be drawn from your arm, similar to a routine blood test.
    • Centrifugation: The collected blood will be processed in a specialized centrifuge machine to isolate the PRF material.
    • Injection: Once the PRF is prepared, it will be carefully injected into the targeted areas, such as the TMJ, facial muscles, or gums, depending on your individual needs.
    • Recovery and Follow-Up: PRF injections are minimally invasive, and recovery is typically swift. Our team will provide aftercare instructions and schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress.

      This is the office and staff to go to, for TMJ and or just sleep difficulties. Not only is Dr. K’s knowledge of both areas stellar, but she strives to continually educate herself to provide support and answers for her patients.
