Platelet rich fibrin (PRF) is a living biomaterial derived from your own blood. To get platelet rich fibrin, we first take a sample of your blood, which is then spun in a centrifuge. This separates the different parts of the blood, and after a few minutes, a thick, gel-like membrane forms. For bone grafting procedures, we mix this membrane with bone material and place it at the site of the graft. We will add a second platelet rich fibrin membrane or a collagen membrane over the grafted area before suturing the gum tissue back in place. Platelet rich fibrin, often called an “optimized blood-clot,” gradually releases growth factors that will help the surgical site heal at a greatly accelerated rate by stimulating tissue healing and regeneration.
