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.

Ideally PRF should be considered for anyone seeking a reduced healing time after a surgical procedure. Please note, however, that pursuant to the Ministry of Health’s regulations, there are specific procedures that PRF can be used for.

There are also patient-specific contraindications for using PRF.

Get in touch with us to find out if PRF can be used for your dental procedure.
