Understanding Platelet Rich Fibrin
Platelet rich fibrin (PRF) has been widely utilized in implant dentistry primarily owing to its ability to favor soft tissue wound healing. While many have attempted to use PRF as a GBR barrier membrane, many remain disappointed regarding its rather quick resorption properties (2-3 weeks). From the lead Editor of Quintessence’s planned 2021 Textbook titled: “Understanding Platelet Rich Fibrin”, Dr. Richard Miron discusses a variety of methods to improve PRF in routine daily practice. One main discovery has been the ability to extend the resorption properties of PRF from 2 weeks to 4-6 months utilizing the Bio-Heat Technology. Within 10 minutes, membranes can be transformed towards a slow degrading fibrin mesh and utilized similarly to collagen membranes.
