What is Platelet Rich Fibrin?

Platelet Rich Fibrin or (PRF) is a by-product of blood plasma. This substance is rich in platelets, and is now used in many dental or oral surgery procedures. New technology allows the doctor to draw blood from the patient, and produce PRF to be used during surgery.

Platelet Rich Fibrin allows the body to heal at an accelerated rate. When our bodies heal, cells are sent towards the wound to start the healing process. Platelets help to form blood clots, and also help the body to heal and repair by stimulating stem cells and tissue regeneration. PRF is used to assist in healing, and helps you to heal quicker.

What Procedures Is PRF Commonly Used?

  • Bone grafting to prepare for dental implants
  • Sinus Lift
  • Ridge augmentation
  • Cleft lip or cleft palate
  • Removal of teeth or cysts
  • Sinus cavity repair
  • Mouth repair

What Are the Advantages of PRF?

  • Promotes faster healing and increases tissue regeneration.
  • PRF is a by-product of our own blood and is safe to use.
  • PRF is convenient, and can be generated during a surgical procedure quickly and efficiently.
  • PRF is cost effective and can be done right at the doctor’s office.
  • PRF is easy to use and can be applied quickly.

How Does the PRF Process Work?

When you visit our office for a surgical procedure, we begin by taking a small amount of your own blood using an IV. The blood is placed into a centrifuge machine and spun down. In about 15 minutes PRF is formed, and is ready to be used during your surgery.
