What is PRF/IPRF Therapy?Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF/IPRF) Therapy is a cutting-edge treatment that uses your blood to promote healing. The PRF/IPRF therapy process separates plasma and platelets from your blood and then it is placed or injected into the site of surgery. This helps improve healing time and overall oral health. Once we have taken your blood sample, we will spin it using a centrifuge device to separate several essential compounds from the blood:
- Platelets: Play a vital role in the formation of blood clots
- Fibrin: Protein is also involved in clotting
- White blood cells: Part of your body’s immune response
- Bone morphogenic proteins and other growth factors
- Stem cells
How does PRF/IPRF Therapy work?PRF/IPRF Therapy uses your blood plasma to help enhance the body’s natural healing abilities and to regenerate tissue and bone. Biocompatible and free of synthetics, PRF/IPRF Therapy contains a high concentration of platelets, activated when they come into contact with the damaged tissue. The platelets release growth factors and cytokines, which promote faster recovery and regeneration. The PRF/IPRF membrane creates a scaffold that can protect the wound and deliver these vital growth factors directly to the injury site. As a result, the PRF/IPRF Therapy procedure is minimally invasive, and you will experience little to no pain.
Benefits of PRF/IPRF TherapyThe application of Platelet Rich Fibrin in dentistry has exhibited a number of benefits. PRF/IPRF Therapy is very effective in promoting healing for various oral health issues. When PRF is applied to a wound, it will help to:
- Encourage new blood vessel growth
- Improve the overall health of the tissue
- Improved healing time for oral health issues
- Reduced inflammation
- Less pain and swelling after treatment
- Increased production of collagen, which helps to improve tissue regeneration
How is PRF/IPRF Therapy Administered?PRF/IPRF Therapy is a minimally invasive procedure performed in our office. We will take a small blood sample and then use a centrifuge device to separate the platelets and other vital compounds from the blood. These components will then be injected back into the site of injury.
