Platelet Rich Fibrin In Dentistry
Natural Aid to Bone and Gum Regeneration
PRF is an effective and cutting-edge treatment in dental and medical field. PRF or Platelet Rich Fibrin is concentrated blood plasma that contains various growth factors and stem cells which stimulate healing and regeneration in the human body. Our blood contains plasma and millions of platelets rich in growth factors with the ability to regenerate and repair tissue. PRF therapy offers a technique for expedited healing that is simple, cost-effective, and reliable.
Implants helps preserve the remaining natural bone after extraction and by inducing bone stimulation and reducing shrinkage. As an added benefit, we use PRF in all surgeries according to patient request to further strengthen and enhance bone and soft tissue regeneration. The ability of platelets to significantly accelerate the healing of damaged tissues is applied not only in medicine, but PRF therapy has great and numerous regenerative benefits in all dental surgeries.
One of the main advantages of PRF is that it is obtained from the patient’s body and it’s almost impossible to have an allergic reaction or an immune rejection. In PRF therapy, the patient’s own blood is drawn out and spun rapidly, using very specific speeds and time protocols in a horizontal centrifuge which results in a very high concentration of platelets. When this heavily concentrated portion of the blood is isolated, it contains three to five times the number of growth factors and stem cells found in normal blood! PRF therapy allows patients to take advantage of the body’s natural healing at a tremendously enhanced rate.
Platelet-rich fibrin (or PRF therapy) is widely used to accelerate healing and has proven valuable when used in conjunction with dental implant procedures, tooth extraction, and bone grafts. PRF therapy is used to reduce post-operative pain, promote tissue repair, reduce healing times, and contribute to faster tissue and bone regeneration.
By applying PRF therapy we achieve the following:
- Faster healing
- Bone and tissue regrowth due to presence of concentrated stem cells from patient’s own blood.
- No foreign donors
- All Natural and non-synthetic
- Reduced risk of infection
- Reduced swelling
- Reduced post-operative discomfort
