Platelet Rich Fibrin in Basking Ridge, NJ

What Exactly is Platelet Rich Fibrin?

At Ridge Oral Surgery, we are committed to using advanced clinical technology to promote your safety, expedite your recovery, and optimize your surgical results. We use platelet rich fibrin, or PRF, in conjunction with other treatments to enhance your body’s healing capabilities. 

PRF is a byproduct of your own blood plasma. We extract it via a simple blood draw, not unlike what you would experience during a routine physical checkup. We then place your blood sample into a centrifuge, which spins and purifies the blood, separating the PRF and other essential growth factors.

PRF then promotes your recovery and expedites healing by being injected into the treatment site or combined with bone grafting materials.

How Is PRF Used?

We use PRF during oral surgery procedures in several ways. Some of the most common methods include:

  • Plugging a socket following a tooth extraction
  • Filling gaps surrounding a new dental implant
  • Combining with bone graft material 
  • Supporting the repair of your soft tissues around a surgical site

The Benefits of PRF Treatment

One of the primary reasons why we use PRF is to expedite your healing process. PRF signals your cells to repair certain areas, which can mean shorter recovery times with quick and comfortable recovery. In other words, PRF is used to get you back on your feet again as quickly as possible following oral surgery.

Additional benefits include:

  • Because PRF is derived from your own tissue, there is no risk of an adverse reaction to it.
  • The entire PRF treatment process is quick and easy, performed here in our office.
  • Using PRF may decrease the time you have to spend away from school or work following your oral surgery.
