PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin)

PRF (platelet-rich fibrin) is a method used in surgeries in the mouth area, implant operations, gingival problems and healthier recovery of extraction cavities.

It contains leukocyte and platelet rich fibrin obtained from the person’s own blood, growth factors, cytokines and stem cells that support healing positively. It supports wound healing by continuing to release growth factors for 1-4 weeks after application.

You may have heard of the PRP method used in joints and for anti-aging purposes… PRF is similar to this method, but it has some advantages over it. Anti-coagulation, preservative etc. in PRF tubes. there are no ingredients. The fibrin contained in it has a protective property for platelets. With its structure that supports vascularization, it contributes to the healthy circulation needed by the tissue for healing. The monocyte, leukocyte and other white blood cells in it have a positive effect on the healing process.

In our clinic, PRF is used in almost all routine tooth extraction procedures, implant operations, cleaning osteonecrotic (NICO) areas in the jawbone and gum operations.
