WHAT IS PLATELET-RICH FIBRIN (PRF)?
Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is a concentration of growth factors and cells collected from your blood. It is a natural regenerative strategy that uses a standard blood draw, then is spun at high speeds in a Bio-PRF machine to create concentrated and natural growth factors.
HOW DOES BIO-PRF STIMULATE WOUND HEALING?
When tissues are required to heal, they need certain proteins and growth factors that stimulate healing. These are naturally found in the human body. The Bio-PRF method produces up to 6-8 times more platelets and leukocytes when compared to whole blood. That means more growth factors, more ways to fight infections, and reducing post-op pain naturally. PRF is a proven technology for its tremendous benefits in Implants and other dental surgical procedures.
IS THE PROCEDURE PAINFUL?
The procedure is virtually painless and relies on a simple blood draw utilized in everyday blood labs. It has scientifically been shown that when PRF is added to regenerative procedures, a significant decrease in post-operative pain, the chance of infection, and complication rate are all decreased when PRF is utilized.
