PRF for Implants, Bone Grafts and Extractions:
Bone grafting products are typically purchased from pharmaceutical companies. Bone products can guide bone cells where to grow bone and may additionally stimulate bone cells to grow bone. PRF is the only material that can guide bone growth as well as stimulate bone growth. PRF can also not get rejected since it is formulated from the patient’s own blood.
Teeth Removal and Bone Preservation:
Platelet rich fibrin contains fibrin and clot factors to reduce the chances of dry socket. Bone growth factors such as BMP or bone morphogenic protein, stimulates bone cells to rapidly grow bone in extraction sites. Bone preservation procedures prevent rapid bone loss after tooth extractions.
PRF as a Bone Grafting Material
Platelet rich fibrin is one of the best bone graft materials in the maxillary sinus. PRF can also be mixed with other allograft materials to assist in regenerating bone growth.
PRF with other Bone Graft Materials
Many bone grafts are performed such as sticky bone. Sticky bone is basically a mixture of A-PRF, I-PRF and allograft materials.
PRF membranes for block bone grafts
membranes are absolutely necessary to create a barrier between grafting materials and gum tissue. The membrane basically helps prevent gum tissue from growing into bone graft products during healing. Bone has a natural barrier from soft tissue called periosteum. The membrane should be placed under the periosteum and over top of any bone graft materials. PRF can serve as a membrane in many situations.
Injectable PRF into areas of infection
I-PRF is a form of platelet rich fibrin that is rich in bone and tissue growth factors. I-PRF is an unclotted blood product. I-PRF will clot after a period of time, but it can be injected since it is a fluid and not a solid.
