Faster recovery in natural way

platelet rich fibrineIn order to speed up the healing process after surgical procedures, the most advanced technology - Choukroun's  A-PRF™ (ADVANCED - Platelet Rich Fibrin) is used in dental clinic Pro-implant. Biomembrane (PRF) is in the form of thin film, which is obtained from the patient's blood. 
A-PRF™ procedure stops bleeding, promotes the formation of new blood vessels, stimulates bone and soft tissue regeneration, promotes healing, especially during the first seven critical days after surgery.

The main advantage of this medical innovation is that no chemicals or pharmaceuticals are used to to accelerate the healing process. The active ingredient of PRF is biologically active substances of patient's blood.

Advantages of A-PRF™ procedure:

  • stops bleeding
  • decreases inflammation
  • decreases swelling
  • the smaller scar is formed
  • reduces the risk of infection
  • faster and better healing

Important! A-PRF™ procedure reduces the risk of complications, patients feel more comfort during postoperative period, procedure reduces the need for painkillers.

Indications:

  • Dental Implantation
  • Sinus lift
  • Bone grafting and transplantation
  • Soft tissue plastic surgery
  • Surgical treatment of periodontal diseases
  • Tooth removal treatments
  • Postoperative wound healing

Specialist advice: A-PRF™ method is especially recommended for patients with weakened immunity due to chronic disease, with acute illness, for those who are taking medications that may affect the healing process. Also for smokers, because smoking slows healing and increases the risk of complications during the postoperative period.

A-PRF™ procedure step by step

  • Before the surgical procedure, a small amount of blood from patient's vein is taken into a sterile test tubes. Tubes of blood are placed into a special centrifuge and centrifuged for 12 min. During this period, the blood cells are separated into individual components.

platelet rich fibrineOn top of the tube – transparent blood plasma

In the middle of tube - concentration of white blood cells and platelets. This is a PRF - platelet enriched fibrin - thin jelly film, also called biomembrane. Biomembranes are removed from the tube and placed into a sterile container.

At the bottom of tube - erythrocytes (red blood cells).

 

  • Surgical procedure is performed.
  • At the end of the surgical procedure, surgery areas are covered with several layers of biomembranes and then soft tissue is closed and stitched. Biomembrane protects the surgery area, because it works as a barrier to potential infection. In addition to blocking functions, biomembrane also stimulates the healing process.

Why is it effective?

Platelets - sticky, colorless blood cells that make blood clots. It is rich in biologically active substances of various enzymes and growth factors, that promote wound healing, skin, and bone remodeling, formations of new blood vessels.
PRF (biomembrane) is the concentrate of patient's blood platelets, so the effect becomes much stronger. Postoperative wound seals faster, bleeding stops, because platelets accelerate formation of a clot.
The most important feature of PRF - this is a slow and uniform release of growth factors into the surgery area. The process takes place continuously for more than 7 days after the procedure.

Important! Gradually "dosed" growth factors are the main healing power of PRF.

Why growth factors are so special?

  • Promotes the formation of new blood vessels
    Good blood circulation in tissues is the main factor in healing process. During the surgery a network of small blood vessels is damaged, so the normal healing process takes time. Meanwhile, the growth factors in PRF stimulates formation of new blood vessel. Blood flow to the area of ​​operation is restored more quickly, thus reducing inflammation, pain and swelling.
  • Accelerates bone and soft tissue regeneration
    Growth factors stimulates bone and soft tissue growth, accelerates bone regeneration, reduces scarring.
  • Reduces the risk of infection
    Concentrated growth factors of PRF have antimicrobial effects, which significantly reduces the risk of postoperative infections.
