Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF)

Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) for Extractions and Dental Implants

 

Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) is used in many dental surgical procedures such as extractions and dental implants. PRF accelerates the healing process, decreases surgical pain and swelling for both dental implants and wisdom tooth extraction. PRF also improves the strength of bone’s direct structural and functional connection to implants.

 

The PRF process is very simple. One vial of blood is drawn per

surgical site immediately before your dental procedure; the

same process as when blood is taken during a routine medical

exam. The blood is then put into a centrifuge and separated

into various layers; one being the PRF. The PRF layer is rich in

fibrin, platelets and growth factors.

 

The use of Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF), protects the bony surgical

site from infection, accelerates the healing process and

decreases pain after a procedure. Platelet Rich Fibrin treatment

is 100% natural without the use any additives or preservatives.

 

PRF is placed directly into the tooth extraction site and implant site. In the absence of the PRF, dental extractions sites are commonly left to heal open. When PRF is placed into the extraction site, the PRF protects the site from infection and enriches the area with proteins that accelerate the healing process. In sites where implants are placed, the PRF occupies the space between the extraction site and the dental implant. Placement of PRF in dental implant sites decreases the implant healing time as well as decreases the chance for a dental implant failure. PRF is a much better alternative to sending a tooth removal patient home with an unfilled bony extraction socket or implant site.
