Platelet rich fibrin is a by-product of blood that is exceptionally rich in platelets and growth factors. It is used to expedite the post-procedure healing process and is completely safe. A small amount of blood comes from the patient’s own body and is placed in a centrifuge where red blood cells, white blood cells, growth factors and platelets are separated. Fortified platelets and growth factors are placed back in the body at the site where it is needed. In dentistry, it is useful for bone grafting, repairs of fistulas between the mouth and sinus cavity, and bone repair from cysts or extraction sites.
