Platelet Rich Fibrin

When faced with the prospect of oral surgery, patients are understandably concerned about a number of factors, including recovery time and the risk of infection. Fortunately, advances in surgery over the years have led to improved results and overall patient experience. One such advancement is the use of Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF).

What is Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF)?

PRF is – simply stated – a concentrate of your own blood that contains a large number of growth factors that are essential to the healing process.  By applying this concentrated group of growth factors locally at the surgical site, the healing process is dramatically enhanced, and the risk of wound complications is dramatically decreased.

How is Platelet Rich Fibrin Created?

PRF is produced by taking blood draw immediately before a surgical procedure and placing it into a centrifuge which separates it into three layers:

  • Clear liquid or plasma layer
  • Red layer rich in red blood cells
  • Yellow thick layer, which is the PRF portion

The thick PRF layer is rich in fibrin, platelets, growth factors, and circulating stem cells. In addition, the fibrin network is composed of leukocytes and cytokines that play a significant role in inflammation and infection regulation.

Which Procedures Call for PRF?

PRF can be beneficial in a wide variety of oral surgery procedures including wisdom tooth extractions, socket preservation/grafting, sinus lift procedures, and implant placement among many others.

Essentially any procedure where there is wound healing involved (which is pretty much all of them!), PRF will be beneficial to that wound healing process.

What are the Benefits of Using PRF?

  • 100% natural and easy to obtain
  • Decreased pain scores post operatively
  • Faster healing
  • High cost-benefit ratio
