Are You Interested in PRF Injections for TMJ?

At the the TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of San Diego, our commitment is to provide cutting-edge treatments for TMJ disorders and sleep-related issues. Among our advanced services, Platelet-Rich Fibrin Injections (PRF) stand out as an innovative solution designed to offer relief and healing for a variety of oral and facial conditions. Read on to discover what PRF is, its benefits, treatment details, and how our specialized team can guide you through the entire process.

Platelet-Rich Fibrin Injections (PRF): A Revolutionary Approach

Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) harnesses the healing power of your blood platelets and growth factors to facilitate natural tissue healing and regeneration. This procedure involves drawing a small blood sample, which is then processed to separate platelets and fibrin. The resulting PRF material is a potent and bioactive substance that accelerates the body’s natural healing mechanisms.

How PRF Injections Can Help

PRF Injections exhibit remarkable potential in treating various oral and facial conditions. They are particularly beneficial for individuals dealing with:

  • TMJ Disorders: PRF injections reduce inflammation, stimulate tissue repair, and promote healing in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), leading to decreased pain and improved oral health.
  • Facial Pain and Headaches: PRF injections provide relief for chronic facial pain, headaches, and migraines by addressing inflammation and encouraging tissue regeneration.
  • Dental Implant Support: For dental implant procedures, PRF injections enhance post-surgery healing, resulting in improved implant success rates.
  • Periodontal (Gum) Health: PRF aids in gum disease treatment and supports tissue regeneration after periodontal procedures.
  • Oral Surgery Recovery: PRF injections expedite the healing process following various oral surgeries.

The Treatment Process

When you visit the TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of San Diego, our experienced specialists conduct a thorough evaluation to determine if PRF injections are suitable for your specific condition. The treatment process typically includes:

  • Consultation and Evaluation: We review your medical history, perform a comprehensive examination, and assess your condition.
  • Blood Collection: A small blood sample is drawn, similar to a routine blood test.
  • Centrifugation: The blood is processed to isolate the PRF material.
  • Injection: The prepared PRF is carefully injected into targeted areas such as the TMJ, facial muscles, or gums.
  • Recovery and Follow-Up: PRF injections are minimally invasive, with swift recovery. Aftercare instructions and follow-up appointments are provided to monitor progress.

I have been seeing the specialists at La Mesa's TMJ Centre since the mid-1990s when my dentist referred me to Dr. Smith. I am utterly please with the care. My headaches, jaw pain have majorly improved. I feel comfortable and confident in their care and am faithful wearing my appliances. Dr. Smith has retired and the new doctor has the same caring attitude.

Wonderful staff. Clean and stylish lobby with very knowledgeable team. Genuinely cares for their patients and anyone that is there to consult with a professional on their issues. Victoria was exceptional and the doctor made me feel comfortable as I have high anxiety going to dentists/doctors.

TMJ is always friendly and very helpful. They are more concerned about “YOU” as a patient and your health, than getting you in and out quickly!

Doctors are smart, respectful and actually listen to patient needs. Supported by an amazing team of women, from the front desk to behind the scenes, who deal with patients in a kind,considerate way that is not often found at most dr's offices today.

I recently went thru treatment for some jaw pain and popping, and had great results! I didn't have a referral at first but I was looking around online to see if I could find a professional to check out the problems I was having. You start off with a consultation and go thru several exams and testing which I felt were comprehensive and convinced me to pursue the 3 month treatment. The downside is that insurance may not cover the visits and treatment regiment, but it was definitely worth the money. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for TMJ treatment. The staff and doctor are also very friendly and knowledgeable

Dr Sainsbury, Victoria, THANK YOU! As a fellow colleague who found herself in urgent need of help with her child, I cannot express enough gratitude or say enough about this office's mission and compassion! Although Dr Sainsbury doesn't usually see patients on Fridays, after Victoria relayed my story to him, he offered to come to the office to see my child and help in any way he could. And that he did! Dr Sainsbury was personable, clearly very knowledgeable and clear on his diagnosis and recommendations. He helped put my teen at ease immediately. Although in this case the diagnosis did not fall squarely into the TMJ realm, the attitude was not one of "sorry can't help you, bye" as is a little too often in healthcare. Dr Sainsbury clearly had a deep understanding of not only his field but the associated fields. He was sympathetic and offered pain relief services as well as take home products, self care advice and suggestions as to next steps. Everything a patient in pain (or parent of one!) would hope to find in their treating clinician! Willing and able to help! Thank you!
