What is Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF)?
Our blood contains white blood cells, platelet-rich fibrin and many other elements that can help promote natural healing after surgical procedures. At Langdon Dental, we can perform a blood draw prior to oral surgery and utilize the healing elements in the blood to promote quicker and more promising healing of the surgical site.
Why would you need Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF)?
Patients who are more prone to infection or have difficulty healing from oral surgery may require PRF treatment. The purpose of PRF treatment is to help in healing a surgical site within the mouth, preventing infection and improving the chances of the area healing fully and properly. The plasma can help in fighting infection as well as improve healing of extraction and surgical sites.
What can be expected with Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF)?
Prior to oral surgery, blood is drawn and placed into a centrifuge which separates the red blood cells from the plasma, white blood cells and fibrin. After surgery, we will carefully place these components into the surgical area.
