PRF growth factors
Stimulate and speed up
PRF is an abbreviation for the term “platelet-rich fibrin”, which means “platelet-enriched fibrin”. These are products that are obtained from the patient’s blood and are used primarily in oral and aesthetic surgery. PRF is a blood fraction rich in platelets and leukocytes, it is the second generation source of growth factors. They are obtained by centrifuging the patient’s blood in test tubes without additives. PRF is a pure and final product, and contains exclusively fibrin obtained from the patient’s blood.
The platelets found in PRF are rich in growth factors. During activation, growth factors come out of the platelets (platelets) and stimulate angiogenesis in the first place, ie. creation of new blood vessels as well as growth of new bone in bone defects. As a result, the defect is better circulated, which improves regeneration. Growth factors also stimulate the growth of bone in the defect when it comes to, say, periodontal interventions, which further contributes to the better effect of the therapy itself.
PRF is used when:
• Augmentation of the bony ridge in the jaw (implant placement device),
• Periodontal interventions (lobe surgery),
• In the treatment of gingival recession (gum retraction) – the PRF membrane covers the bare neck and eliminates the defect,
• When extracting teeth – PRF is inserted into the defect to reduce bone loss.
PRF is a safe method because only a part of the patient’s personal blood is returned to the defect without any other additive. In recent times, Fibrin has been used in more advanced dental procedures for better healing of bones and soft tissues, and serves as an ideal preparation for surgical procedures that precede implants.
What is it really about?
We believe that you have more than once encountered the fact that we can best help ourselves. Our body has a natural ability to heal itself. With the PRF method, new tissues are renewed through the attraction of stem cells from the body. The process begins with the taking of the patient’s blood, which is separated by further processing through coagulation with a centrifuge in the prescribed order. What is interesting is that the process is really fast (12 minutes) painless and simple.
By separating blood from red blood cells, we get plasma and fibrin, which we later use as a biological autotransplant, ie. after tooth extraction, we place fibrin and plasma in the same place, which serves to speed up the healing process, and speeds up the process of accepting implants, and makes the process of implant placement faster and safer, and above all painless. PRF is a pure and final product, containing exclusively fibrin and plasma obtained from the patient’s blood.
During activation, growth factors come out of the platelets (platelets) and stimulate angiogenesis in the first place, ie. creation of new vascular vessels and thus the growth of new bone in bone defects. The consequences are better tissue nutrition with oxygen, which improves regeneration. PRF is a completely harmless method because it uses only the patient’s blood without any other additive. The results are truly remarkable.
