Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF)
What is Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF)?
Centre Dentaire Beaumont DMD uses Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) in many dental surgical procedures such as tooth extractions, dental implants, and bone pathology sometimes called cavitations. PRF accelerates the healing process, decreases surgical pain and swelling for dental implants and tooth removal. PRF also improves the strength of bone osseointegration to implants.
How is Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) Obtained?
The PRF process is very easy. We draw one vial of blood per surgical site. The blood taking process is exactly the same as when blood is taken during a routine medical physical. The blood is drawn immediately prior to the procedure normally while the patient is getting numb for their dental surgery. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge for 13 minutes to separate out the platelets.
