What is PRF?

PRF, also known as platelet-rich fibrin, was first used in 2001. This advance in both the medical and dental worlds brought many benefits to oral surgery, as PRF helps regulate inflammations and increases the healing process.

Blood is separated into its components:

  • Red blood cells
  • Plasma
