Platelet-Rich Fibrin Heals Wounds Faster

Jan 02, 2021 01:20PM ● By John Kempter

Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is made of fibrin, a non-globular protein involved in the clotting of blood, that accelerates wound healing and contains a number of growth factors that assist in tissue regeneration. It significantly decreases the rate of infection up to 10-fold, especially following molar extractions and prior/during implant placement. 

The PRF process is very easy. The patient’s blood is drawn just as during a routine medical physical. The blood is drawn immediately prior to the procedure while the patient is getting numb and then put into a centrifuge. The blood is then separated into three layers, which creates the PRF membrane.

PRF can be used for extractions, guided bone regeneration, implants and cavitation. The advantages of using PRF are faster healing, less pain, decreased swelling and improved natural bone grafting success.
