Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) - bone augmentation & regeneration

Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF), stable fibrin bone graft (sticky bone), i-PRF and S-PRF bone augmentation & regeneration

Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) is a procedure that uses the patient's own blood to aid in rapid healing and recovery after trauma, surgery, or procedures in various fields of medicine, such as dentistry, orthopedics, and cosmetic surgery. Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) plays an important role in the field of dentistry, especially in bone augmentation.

i-PRF - platelet-rich, injectable fibrin

Bone augmentation is performed when there is a need to increase the amount or density of bone in the oral cavity. This procedure is often necessary before the placement of dental implants or when correcting bone defects that have occurred due to tooth extraction, trauma, or other factors. The procedure usually involves the following steps:

  1. Blood draw: The doctor draws a small amount of blood from the patient, usually from a vein in the arm.

  2. Centrifugation: The drawn blood is placed in a centrifuge that spins at high speed. This separates the blood into different components depending on their weight ratios. The result is a layer rich in platelets and fibrin called Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF).

  3. Application: PRF is placed into the bone area where the augmentation takes place. This can be done by mixing the PRF with bone substance or placing the PRF on the surface of the bone. This material contains growth factors that can support tissue regeneration, reduce inflammation and stimulate healing processes.

  5. Stimulation of bone healing: The platelets and growth factors in PRF support the cells responsible for bone healing by stimulating cell migration, division and differentiation. This speeds up the bone healing process and aids in the integration of the added bone.

  6. Reduce inflammation: PRF can also help reduce inflammation and promote rapid healing after a bone augmentation procedure. Because of their antimicrobial properties, the platelets in PRF can help prevent infections and promote oral hygiene after surgery.

  7. Natural and safe method: PRF is produced from the patient's own blood, making it a safe and almost risk-free method. There is no risk of allergic reactions or rejection because the material is biological and compatible with the body.

  8. Monitoring and care: The doctor monitors the results of the procedure and provides the necessary instructions for care afterwards.

Overall, the use of PRF in bone augmentation in dentistry can provide several benefits, including rapid healing, less inflammation, and improved outcomes of implant procedures. Again, it is important to consult with your dentist to determine the appropriate strategy for your particular case.
