Platelet Rich: PRP and PRF
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) practise at Royal Cosmognathic is a new approach to tissue regeneration and promotes healing in many dental and oral surgery procedures. It can be used for PRP tooth extraction, PRP Dental Implants, PRP bone grafts and more. Patients plasma contains growth factors that influence wound healing, thereby playing an important role in tissue repairing mechanisms.
Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is derived from the concentration of the patient’s blood platelets. A simplified chair-side procedure results in the production of a fibrin membrane that can stimulate the release of many important growth factors involved during wound healing processes that take place after surgery.
Humans rely on the natural healing of the body, which is mostly accelerated by the blood. The human blood contains various components that have healing properties. We at Royal Cosmognathic use a pain-free procedure to get blood from various parts of your body so that it can be used as your natural healing treatment.
Once we extract your blood, we put it in a centrifuge so that it can be separated. We then concentrate the white blood cells or fibrin obtained from the blood plasma. These components help your tissues quickly regenerate. We apply the PRP or PRF on the affected area (where you had a dental procedure done). Your stem cells strengthen and develop new tissue for speedy healing.
PRP and PRF Benefits:
Jumpstarts a quick recovery process
Facilitates tissue regeneration and improves bone regeneration
Reduces swelling as well as inflammation, pain after dental procedure
Strengthens as well as heals the jawbone after implants
Prevents dry sockets
Protects against bacterial, fungal, or other forms of infections
Procedures that call for PRP and PRF Therapy
For preparation of PRF, only centrifuged blood without any addition of anticoagulant and bovine thrombin required. Blood sample taken without anticoagulant in 10-mL tubes in a glass or glass-coated plastic tube and immediately centrifuged at 3000 rpm for 10 minutes. The resultant product consists of the following three layers. Above all top-most layer consisting of an acellular plasma, PRF clot in the middle, and a red corpuscle base at the bottom. Therefore, compression between two sterile gauzes or in a specific PRF tool, enables the clot to be transformed into a membrane.
PRP/PRF Can Be Used In Case of:
- Bone Grafting
- Dental Implants
- Tooth Removal
Advantages of using PRF:
- Simplified preparation and efficient technique just before any dental treatment
- Accelerates the healing rate of the grafted bone
- It is available through autologous blood sample which can be done at clinic itself
- Minimal blood manipulation required
- The natural fibrin framework that stimulates tissue regeneration effectively
- When used along with bone grafts, it is a quick as well as an economical alternative when compared with recombinant growth factors.
