How Does PRGF Work?
Platelet Rich Growth Factors has become an increasingly popular procedure because of its ability to accelerate healing pathways that would otherwise happen naturally, but at a much slower rate. When a body naturally works on healing a wound, it sends various cell types (platelets) towards the wound to begin the healing process. These platelets perform a variety of functions, including forming a blood clot and releasing GF upon the wound. The GF then facilitates the bodies repair process by helping stem cells work to regenerate brand new tissues. By providing the body with more growth factors upon the wound, this results in more stem cells that are produced, which in turn, produce more new tissue.
Additional Benefits OF PRGF
PRGF can have additional beneficial effects for other clinical applications, including the following;
- Assisting in the repair of fistulas that can develop between the mouth and sinus cavity
- Assisting in repairing bone defects that can develop following the removal of small cysts or teeth
- Assisting in bone grafts, including ridge augmentation, sinus lifts and onlay and inlay graft procedures

What is Platelet Rich Fibrin?
Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) is used to help patients heal faster following dental procedures. Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) is rich in platelets, and helps the body facilitate the healing process by rushing a variety of cell-types towards a wound. These platelets perform a wide variety of functions, but are particularly helpful in helping form blood clots and releasing growth factors, which help heal a wound.
During this process, your dentist will take a small amount of blood and place it in a centrifuge, which will then extract growth factors which are essential to facilitating the healing process, especially when healing soft tissues and bone. This process generally takes around 15 minutes or less to perform.
The use of PRF can help promote healing in a variety of procedures, including the repair of fistulas that exist between the mouth and sinus cavity, bone defects that can be addressed by removing small cysts and teeth, palate defects, cleft closure, ridge augmentation, sinus lift, bone grafting, and onlay and inlay grafts.
What Are The Advantages of PRF

- Faster tissue regeneration
- Conveniently generated in your doctor’s office
