By changing the G-force and spin time a number of different PRF blood fractions can be produced, with many applications in regenerative dentistry.
A-PRF is a growth factor rich fibrin clot, which can be thinned and shaped using the PRF kit. The resultant PRF membranes can be used for bone augmentation procedures and soft tissue regeneration.
Using the cylinders and piston in the PRF kit, the A-PRF can be shaped into plugs that are placed over the top of the socket graft material.
Liquid PRF can be mixed with particulate bone augmentation materials. The resultant sticky 'gel' can greatly improve the handling characteristics of the particulate and ease of surgery, as well as introducing numerous growth factors and BMPs into the graft.
A-PRF can be used between the sinus graft material and the sinus membrane to protect the membrane from tears. Liquid PRF helps to 'set' and stabilise the particulate graft.
KERATINISED MUCOSA REGENERATION
A-PRF can be used to increase the width of the keratinised attached mucosa around a potential implant site. In this example a full thickness flap has been apically repositioned. The resultant coronal defect is filled with A-PRF, which will regenerate into keratinised mucosa.
