PRF Dental Treatment

PRF for tooth extractions helps promote faster healing and decreases the likelihood of getting dry socket.


What is
platelet-rich fibrin (PRF)

Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) substance is a by-product of blood (plasma) that is rich in platelets. PRF, in short, is simply a byproduct of blood. It is exceptionally high in platelets and growth factors —the “signaling” molecules that allow communication between cells. PRF is a tool that significantly improves bone and soft tissue regeneration. Recently, its use has been advocated for regenerative periodontics and wound healing.

A small quantity of blood is taken from the patient and then placed into the PRF centrifuge machine, where the blood is separated into red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. In a tooth extraction treatment or other dental procedure, PRF adds fortified blood back into the body and promotes healing in the site where it is most necessary. The grouping of platelets and growth factors have regenerative capabilities, and the healing of hard and soft tissue is observed to be faster and help the patient recover faster after tooth extraction.

What is the use of PRF

1. Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) has been known to have several properties that aid in healing and regeneration.
2. PRF membrane aids in the treatment of periodontal infrabony defects. It shields open wounds from the oral environment when the suture cannot bind the mucosal margins.
3. PRF, in conjunction with freeze-dried bone allograft (FDBA), improves bone regeneration in a maxillary sinus lift procedure. There is a considerably decreased healing time before implant placement.
4. PRF may act as a biologic cement to hold the particles together, aiding the manipulation of the bone grafts.

Advantage of using PRF

1. PRF is safe and fast since it is a by-product of the patient’s blood. Therefore, disease transmission is not an issue. During the outpatient surgical procedure, a lesser amount of your blood is drawn out via the IV. This blood is placed in the PRF centrifuge machine and spun down. In less than fifteen minutes, the PRF is formed and ready to use.
2. PRF is quick and conveniently produced in the doctor’s office while the patient is experiencing an outpatient surgical procedure, like as the placement of dental implants and others.
3. The supersaturating of the wound with PRF, and thus growth factors, produces an increase of tissue synthesis and therefore faster tissue regeneration and quicker healing.
4. The patient does not incur the expenditure of the harvesting technique in a hospital or at the blood bank for PRF. It is cost-effective and safe.
