At Chapel Hill Oral Surgery, we take pride in leveraging advanced technology to improve our patients’ experience. We were early adopters of bioactive modifiers, including platelet-rich fibrin (PRF). Our use of PRF helps to expedite recovery times, providing patients with a safe and natural way to promote healing.

What Is Platelet-Rich Fibrin?

PRF is derived from your own blood. We start by collecting a blood sample and creating a concentrated dose of platelets and growth factor. This concentrate can then be injected or dispensed at the site of a surgery, such as a bone graft or implant placement, where it harnesses your body’s natural healing abilities. Through the use of advanced, latest-gen PRF, we are able to provide our patients with faster wound healing and fewer complications during their recovery.

Using PRF in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery

PRF helps improve the success of oral surgical procedures by promoting better healing at the site of the surgical wound. Because it is derived from the patient’s own blood, there is no risk of rejection or unwanted side effects.

While PRF may not benefit every patient, it is an option we are always happy to discuss, whether as an addition to a bone graft or as a way to ensure a smooth recovery following any type of oral surgery.
