Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF)
Platelet rich fibrin belongs to the new biotechnology that has been a breakthrough in the stimulation and acceleration of bone and soft tissue healing. The idea of this process is to concentrate growth factors and proteins that enhance the physiological healing and reparative processes.
This procedure has developed to be used in medicine and several fields of dentistry such as cosmetic, periodontal, surgical and maxillofacial.
After a tooth extraction, there is a eventual bone loss, through socket preservation and Platelet Rich Fibrin, we are able to uphold the bone reduction. Platelet Rich Fibrin is placed inside the socket right after the extraction. The socket is closed with sutures and a membrane.
When dental implants are placed and sinus lifts are required to place dental implants, Platelet Rich Fibrin can be placed to accelerate the healing process.
Platelet Rich Fibrin is frequently used for guided bone and tissue regeneration here at Prisma Dental. This is a dental surgical procedure which objective is to grow new bone or soft tissue where it is needed by placing a barrier membrane. This is a surgery in the periodontal field used for prosthetic and esthetic reasons. Platelet Rich Fibrin helps the healing process when bone augmentation is needed for placing implants.
Platelet Rich Fibrin is autologous, meaning that the growth factors and proteins placed come from the same person who needs them. Which means the donor and the receiver are the same. As simple as a sample of blood is enough to obtain the Platelet Rich Fibrin to place at the surgical site. There are no high risks of infections or allergic reactions because it’s all from the same person.
Platelet Rich Fibrin is an optional procedure with many studies and great results. Platelet Rich Fibrin helps achieve successful and quicker healing after dental surgery. At Prisma Dental, we offer our patients the option of including Platelet Rich Fibrin to their procedure for outstanding results.
