Platelet-rich plasma or fibrin is a solution or gel that our team can apply during treatments such as bone grafting to improve and speed up the healing process. Blood naturally consists of platelets, which are essential for clotting blood, but platelet-rich plasma and fibrin contains a higher concentration of platelets, which results in quicker healing.
One of the many benefits of platelet-rich plasma or fibrin is that our team can create it using just a small sample of your blood. Using your blood makes the risk of disease transmission virtually nonexistent.
Other benefits of platelet-rich plasma/fibrin include
- Decreased healing times following bone grafting
Your doctor can use your small blood sample to create a PRP/PRF gel, which means application is easy and prevents discomfort during and after the procedures. Additionally, centrifuging the sample and creating the platelet-rich plasma/fibrin only takes around 20 minutes. It won’t require an additional procedure or an extended waiting period, so you can experience the benefits without giving up more of your time.
