Platelet Rich Fibrin
Holistic Treatment for Oral Surgery
Platelet Rich Fibrin Therapy
(PRF Dental Therapy)
Platelet Rich Fibrin Therapy is a holistic treatment that uses your own blood to create a bioactive “band-aid”. It promotes quicker healing and has shown to greatly improve results when used in conjunction with various oral surgery procedures.
How does it work?
The doctor will draw your blood and place it in vials. These vials will be placed in the centrifuge which will help separate the necessary proteins that will be used to create a the PRF matrix. Once separated, the matrix can be formed into various shapes like a collagen-like plug for an extraction site or flat membranes for gum grafts.
These bioactive matrices will now serve as framework for your body to use for faster healing and better results after treatment. Depending on your specific needs, the doctor may use different bone graft materials to strengthen the body's ability to regenerate bone and/or tissue.
Ask your doctor today about PRF and if it is right for your treatment.
