Platelet Rich Fibrin
Platelet rich fibrin (PRF) has been used extensively in oral and maxillofacial surgery since 2001. It allows post-surgical sites to heal faster and yield optimal results.
PRF is created from a sample of a patient’s own blood. Platelet itself contains a high concentration of growth factors which promote wound healing. PRF is essentially a platelet rich biodegradable scaffold which contains specific cells and growth factors that enhance the wound healing process.
As it is made from a sample of a patient’s own blood, it harnesses all the healing cells and factors concentrating them into a pliable fibrin scaffold. There is no foreign material used.
