Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) for Enhanced Healing
In recent years, the medical world has discovered that the body has the ability to heal itself.
Platelet-rich Fibrin (PRF) is a form of regenerative medicine that can harness those abilities and amplify the natural growth factors your body uses to heal tissue. PRF is a new approach to tissue regeneration and is becoming a valuable tool to help promote healing in many dental procedures.
Sydney Dental Aesthetics & Implants is pleased to be one of the few dental practices in Sydney, CBD offering this service for our patients.
What is plasma and what are platelets?
Plasma is the liquid portion of whole blood. It is composed largely of water and proteins, and it provides a medium for red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets to circulate through the body. Platelets are tiny blood cells that help your body form clots to stop bleeding and assists with healing functions.
What is platelet-rich fibrin (PRF)?
Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) is produced from your own blood and may be used in dental procedures. Blood is collected in special test tubes and spun in a customised centrifuge to obtain the platelet concentrates, or blood derivatives. This aids in the regeneration of soft tissue and bone, thereby creating a stable environment to perform dental procedures.
Benefits of using PRF:
Faster healing: PRF enables the body to heal faster and more efficiently.
Safer: PRF is a by-product of the patient’s own blood, therefore, disease transmission and allergic reactions are not an issue.
Convenient: PRF can be generated at the SDAI practice while the patient is undergoing a surgical procedure such as the placement of dental implants or the removal of teeth.
