Platelet Rich Fibrin
Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is a leukocyte- and platelet-rich fibrin biomaterial that acts as a binding site for both platelets and growth factors. Through increasing the local concentration of growth factors at specific tissues, PRF promotes tissue regeneration. PRF was first developed in France for oral and maxillofacial surgery. This innovative and natural process offers the latest technology combining your own human blood as a potent autologous regenerative material to accelerate both soft tissue and hard tissue healing. PRF is widely used in oral and maxillofacial surgery, plastic surgery and sports medicine. The key behind using this technology is to utilize all of the elements from a blood sample that could be used to improve healing and promote tissue regeneration.
How does it work?
By extracting blood from our patient, this stimulates the creation of fibrin, which is later centrifuged into our machine, separated and used to create PRF. The matrix formed can be used for bone grafting and repair, by applying the PRF directly to the surgical site. The growth factors found in the PRF solution will increase bone, tissue regeneration and help decrease rejection and allergic reactions to dental implants.
