PRF Blood Concentrate
Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) Blood Concentrate
One of the most promising innovations in surgical dentistry is the use of platelet-rich fibrin. Used solely or as an additive with other biomaterials, it quickens the tissue’s healing mechanism and reduces inflammation.
Dr. Sammy Noumbissi uses platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) in regenerative medicine with the placement of zirconia dental implants. PRF has numerous advantages because it enhances osteoprogenitor cells in the host bone and grafts. The PRF protocol in dental oral and maxillofacial surgery was introduced to improve bone healing in implant dentistry and its application in numerous disciplines of dentistry.
What Is Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF)?
Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) substance is a byproduct of blood (plasma) that is rich in platelets, simply a byproduct of blood. It is noticeably high in platelets and growth factors. PRF is a tool that significantly enhances Bone and soft tissue regeneration. Dr. Noumbissi will use regenerative periodontics and wound healing.
How Does Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) Work?
A tiny quantity of blood is taken from the patient and then placed into the PRF centrifuge machine. Blood types include red blood cells, white, and platelets. In a tooth extraction procedure or other dental treatments, PRF adds fortified blood back into the body and ignites healing in the area where it is most necessary. The grouping of platelets and growth factors has regenerative capabilities. Hard and soft tissue recovery is observed to be faster and helps the patient recover faster after tooth extraction.
In dentistry, the Jaw bone is exposed and cleaned during dental surgery. The jawbone has very little blood supply associated with other tissues in the body. In tissue with a reduced blood supply, the body has reduced its capability to heal and has less defense against bacterial and fungal infection. The extraction area is commonly left to heal alone and open to the oral cavity without PRF. Saliva, bacteria, and other contaminants pour into weak jaw bones throughout the extraction site’s healing. Platelet and fibrin-rich therapies are placed into extraction sockets, and treatment protects the site from infection. It also enriches the natural area with proteins and growth factors that promote new, natural bone growth. Dr. Sammy Noumbissi will position the ceramic dental implants in sections and PRF companies the space between the bony socket and the dental implant. Zirconia dental implant sites with fibrin-platelet therapy increased the surgical success rates. In addition, they decreased bacterial infection rates in the jaw bone.
Advantages of Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF)
- PRF is safe, fast, and ideal because it is a byproduct of the patient’s blood. Therefore, disease transmission is not an issue. This blood is placed in the Platelet-rich fibrin centrifuge machine and spun down. The Platelet-rich fibrin is formed and ready to use in less than fifteen minutes.
- Platelet-rich fibrin is quick and conveniently produced in the doctor’s office while the patient is experiencing an outpatient surgical procedure, like the placement of ceramic implants and others.
- The supersaturating of the wound with Platelet-rich fibrin, and thus growth factors, produces an increase in tissue synthesis and, therefore, more efficient tissue regeneration and faster healing.
- One of the primary benefits of PRF is that it is a minimally invasive treatment with very low risks and satisfactory clinical results. Furthermore, such as preventing complications or implant failure, particularly in elderly patients with age-related conditions.
- PRF has many clinical applications like Bone grafting for dental implants, including onlays and inlays grafts, ridge augmentation treatments, closure of cleft, lip, and palate defects, and sinus lift procedures. PRP helps the body take advantage of the typical healing paths at a significantly enhanced rate. The body rushes numerous cells and cell types to the wound to initiate healing.
- It helps restore bone defects crafting minor cysts or extraction of one tooth or teeth.
Disadvantages of Using PLATELET-RICH FIBRIN (PRF)
- Realizing the PRF protocol depends on handling the collected blood and transference of the centrifuge. The final amount available may be low because it is autologous blood.
- It only needs more than the minimal experience of the clinician for PRF manipulation. Patients with bleeding disorders or hematologic diseases don’t qualify for this in-office procedure. You will need an experienced surgeon/physician to determine if PRP is right for you.
