IntraSpin L-PRF Q & A


What is IntraSpin L-PRF?

The IntraSpin L-PRF is an innovative device that safely prepares the autologous Leukocyte- and platelet-rich fibrin (L-PRF) from your blood for accelerated healing after surgery. Your periodontist can create a compressed layer or plugs of L-PRF directly to your surgical site for advanced healing.

How does IntraSpin L-PRF work?

After taking a sample of your blood, Santa Monica Bay Periodontics runs it through a centrifuge. The IntraSpin system then separates the concentrated cells, proteins, and growth factors from your blood for the most potent solution possible.

With this material, your periodontist forms a malleable bioactive clot that they can apply to your surgical site. The IntraSpin system also allows them to isolate other regenerative materials that may accelerate your body’s natural healing process.

What makes L-PRF unique is that your periodontist can divide it and even combine it with bone graft material to promote healing after bone graft surgery.

What can IntraSpin L-PRF treat?

The most common reason Santa Monica Bay Periodontics recommends the IntraSpin L-PRF system is bone graft surgery. When combined with bone graft material, L-PRF can help you recover quickly from surgery.

Many dental procedures, such as dental implant surgery, require enough healthy bone in your jaw for support and stability. If you require a bone graft for dental implants, your mouth may take several weeks to heal before you can return for your implant surgery.

L-PRF stimulates tissue healing, so you can recover sooner and return for your implants as soon as possible.

While bone grafting is the most popular use for the IntraSpin system, other common conditions that L-PRF can treat include:

  • Dental implant surgery
  • Maxillofacial procedures
  • Bone defects
  • Sinus and dental ridge augmentation
  • Maxillary bone atrophy
  • Palatal defects

Once introduced to your surgical site, L-PRF promotes accelerated regeneration that can reduce your recovery time and improve healing.

What are the benefits of IntraSpin L-PRF?

IntraSpin L-PRF uses materials in your blood to promote accelerated healing and tissue regeneration. It’s FDA-cleared and only requires a small blood sample for healthy regeneration. Other benefits of L-PRF are:

  • No artificial additives
  • 100% biocompatible
