Platelet Rich Fibrin

Using your own body to help you recover faster!

Human teeth are surrounded by bone and soft tissue which is collectively known as the periodontum. Disease and aging can negatively impact the periodontium. Dental treatments such as crowns, bridges, dentures and implants can be compromised with changes in the periodontium. PRF therapy has been proven in maintaining and correcting these changes.

Is it Safe?

Platelet Rich Fibrin and its derivatives have been used for over 30 years. Platelet Rich Fibrin is the second generation of this treatment modality. Platelet Rich Fibrin works by releasing your own growth factors in the area and regenerating the connective tissue. Platelet Rich Fibrin is slowly absorbed by you own body, giving a lengthy and steady stream of growth factors.

What is Platelet Rich Fibrin?

Platelet Rich Fibrin is on the cutting edge of dental technology. It is an in office generated concentration of your own cells, proteins and growth factors. These naturally occurring molecules aid in the healing and regeneration process. Platelet Rich Fibrin placement releases what your body would create naturally but faster and with precise placement.

These naturally occurring molecules aid in the healing and regeneration process. Platelet Rich Fibrin placement releases what your body would create naturally but faster and with precise placement.

All of these cells, proteins and growth factors are continuously created and destroyed in healing wound. To isolate a high density of these molecules, blood is drawn and placed in a centrifuge.

Tooth loss creates a hole in the connective tissue where the tooth used to be. In the past, regions of tooth loss were left for your body regenerate on its on own. Preservation aids in the prevention of connective tissue and helps maintains options for replacing missing teeth.

Gingival recession is one of the most frequently cited dislikes about people’s own smiles. Receding gingiva gives the appearance of of a longer tooth. Platelet Rich Fibrin has been shown to be a less invasive regeneration method compared to older techniques.

Platelet Rich Fibrin Solutions

A clinical example of one of many applications of Platelet Rich Fibrin.

Tooth loss can lead to a significant reduction of 40-60% go the connective tissue in that area during the first year alone. Implants, bridges and dentures require large healthy areas of connective tissue to restore form and function successfully.Platelet Rich Fibrin can be used to limit the loss of connective tissue. Dr. Campeas may have recommended that Platelet Rich Fibrin be part of your treatment. Platelet Rich Fibrin may also have been recommended in addition to biocompatible fillers, as there is no one size fits all treatment plan.
