Platelet Rich Fibrin
The achievement of bone regeneration and soft tissue management has been a major challenge for most clinicians. The key to effective hard and soft tissue regeneration is the use of PRF which has been scientifically and clinically proven over the past many years. The PRF has fibrin clots rich in platelets and growth factors (PDGF, TGF Beta, VEGF, Thrombospondin.
The fibrin acts like a scaffold and plays a major role in different stages of bone and soft tissue healing.
The procedure includes venipuncture, isolation of the PRF with centrifuge and application to the surgical site. It is a great adjunct for immediate placement of implants in extraction sites and Guided Tissue Regeneration and soft tissue grafting.
