Services / Extractions and L-PRF
L-PRF™ is a 3-D autogenous combination of Platelet Rich Fibrin derived from the patient’s blood. A simplified chairside procedure results in the production of a thin, compressed layer of platelet rich fibrin that is strong, pliable and suitable for suturing. This natural fibrin network is rich in platelets, growth factors and cytokines that are derived from the blood platelets and leukocytes.
The presence of these proteins have been reported to produce rapid healing, especially during the critical first seven days after placement. This network promotes more efficient cell migration and proliferation without chemical or bovine thrombin additives.
Clinically, Leukocyte-Platelet Rich Fibrin displays excellent working properties. This biomaterial is resilient, strong and pliable, making it easy to manipulate. It can be cut to size, and is supple enough to adapt to many anatomical areas. It is adhesive in nature and very receptive to suturing. In addition, there is ample working time since L-PRF™ is stable at room temperature for several hours.

This video provides an introduction, overview, and review of the basic characteristics regarding L-PRF. This autologous material accelerates the body's own normal healing processes and is strong, pliable, and suitable for suturing. These characteristics make it an excellent choice for grafting, extraction sites, and implant applications. When graft material is suspended in the fibrin matrix, handling characteristics are dramatically improved. In addition, there is ample working time since L-PRF is stable at room temperature for several hours.
