Platelet Rich Fibrin
Our office utilize platelet rich fibrin to enhance bone grafting in the oral cavity. Often these bone grafts lay the foundation for placement of dental implants. To collect the platelet rich fibrin, blood is drawn and spun down in special tubes. A thin, compressed layer of platelet rich fibrin plug is formed which can be mixed with the bone graft material or can be used to cover the bone grafted area. Our office uses a FDA cleared device to form the platelet rich fibrin.
