How We Use PRF in Dentistry

PRF treatment is ideal for treatments that create openings in the oral tissues, such as extractions and dental implants. Before your surgery, blood will be drawn and placed in a centrifuge to separate the blood components. The PRF is found in the yellow component of the separated blood. Once the PRF is extracted, it will be compressed and applied to the surgical site. Since the PRF is derived from your own blood, the chances for biocompatibility and success are greater. Your surgical sites will heal quicker with minimal inflammation. Platelet rich fibrin can also help prevent infection by stimulating factors that clean debris and fight off bacteria. This faster healing time is a bonus for patients of dental implants since implant typical require healing time between appointments to ensure fusion at the sites to the surrounding bone.
