PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin)

PRF therapy consists of drawing blood from your arm into a test tube and spinning it in a high centrifugal machine to make platelet rich fibrin. These platelets are rich in platelet cytokines, growth factors and plasma proteins, that accelerate the healing process and have an antimicrobial effect, due to the cluster of white cells delivered to the site. PRF and bone graft are used together in placement at tooth extraction sites, at the time of extraction,  to speed up the process of healing by using the body's own immune response, since the platelets originated from you.
