In modern dentistry, PRF is a very successful and innovative therapy. Concentrated blood plasma, or PRF, is rich in growth factors that promote the body’s natural ability to repair and regenerate. Millions of platelets and plasma in our blood are rich in growth factors that allow for tissue regeneration and repair. PRF treatment provides an easy, affordable, and dependable method for accelerated recovery.

When is PRF Therapy Used in Dentistry?

PRF or Platelet-Rich Fibrin clot therapy is used for the following surgeries in dentistry:

  • Dental implant
    When PRF dental therapy is applied during surgery, it increases the quality of bone formation surrounding implants and speeds up implant recovery.
  • Bone Graft Surgery
    Bone Graft Surgery: L-PRF may be processed and combined with I-PRF and other standard bone graft materials to create sticky bone. Any implant dentist or periodontist will find sticky bone to be a wonderful resource for bone regeneration.
  • Tooth Extraction Sockets
    The risk of dry socket and infection following tooth extraction can be decreased by injecting platelet-rich fibrin into the tooth extraction site. The most important aspect of PRF therapy is that it delivers the regenerative growth factors and immune defense (white blood cells) that the jaw bone needs to mend properly.

Benefits of PRF Therapy in Dentistry

Here are five benefits of PRF Therapy in Dentistry that you must know:

  1. It assists in maintaining the alveolar ridge.
  2. PRF helps to mend periodontal abnormalities and produces new bone, which enhances the condition of your teeth.
  3. Osteitis, or inflammation of the bone, can be reduced by 90% with PRF.
  4. Due to its antibacterial qualities, PRF helps in the treatment and prevention of infections.
  5. By connecting the mucosal (soft tissue) edges, PRF can repair them in a way that sutures cannot.

How is PRF Made?

The procedure used to get the PRF involves taking a blood sample from the patient’s arm just before to the dental treatment intervention, then centrifuging the sample to divide it into three layers:
The procedure used to get the PRF involves taking a blood sample from the patient’s arm just before to the dental treatment intervention, then centrifuging the sample to divide it into three layers:

  1. Clear liquid, also called plasma layer
  2. Red layer rich in red blood cells
  3. Yellow thick layer: the PRF portion

Rich in platelets, fibrin, circulating stem cells, and growth factors is the thick PRF layer. Leukocytes and cytokines also make up the fibrin network. Each and every one of them is important for controlling inflammation and preventing infections.

Final Say!

PRF is a low-risk, natural surgical addition that yields outstanding outcomes. In addition to speeding up bone and tissue regeneration and promoting tissue repair and healing, PRF treatment is utilized to lessen post-operative pain.
