Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) and Concentrated Growth Factor (CGF) in Endodontics
PRF/CGF is an advanced technique for enhancing the wound healing process. It is used for the following procedures:
- Regenerative endodontics
- Endodontic root surgery
- Socket preservation after extraction
- Bone grafting
- Soft tissue grafting
- Sinus lift
- Dental implants
We draw a few test tubes of your own blood and use a centrifuge to separate the blood. This chairside procedure results in the production of a fibrin membrane and liquid that are capable of stimulating the release of many important growth factors involved during the wound healing process that take place after surgery.
The fibrin membrane and liquid are completely compatible because it comes from your own blood.
With over 1,100 articles in the PubMed.gov library, this technique has been well studied and researched. PRF/CGF is also used in other fields of medicine.
