The PRF-method (“platelet rich fibrin”) promotes and accelerates the regeneration and healing of tissue with the help of the body’s own substances. The growth factors support the gentle healing of the wound, without the use of foreign materials.
Since only a little amount of the patient’s blood is drawn for this purpose, there is no need for concerns regarding the use of the PRF-method. The drawn blood will be centrifuged for a few minutes, which separates the single blood components. Afterwards, stimulating proteins are extracted, and a so-called “clot” rich in growth factors is formed.
This clot can be of multiple use, e.g. is placed in the wound and regeneration and healing with the help of the body’s own substances begins. PRF can be used in a wide variety of procedures, especially in treatments of the jawbone. For example, in implantology, bone augmentation, tooth extractions, in periodontal surgery or in patients with the tendency of reduced wound healing due to certain medications, diabetes or smoking habit.
