Platelet Rich Fibrin Therapy - For Gum And Bone Regeneration

A Natural Choice, Pure and Simple For Receding Gums and Bone Loss

Gum tissue and bone loss of the jaw cause gum recession that will require a roof of the mouth skin graft to correct the gum tissue recession. Healing from the roof of the mouth can be a long process. The solution to these and other difficult situations is a new Platelet Therapy created from your own blood.

Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) changes all the rules as it promotes healing and bone growth from within your own body. Unlike other treatments that use artificial components, Platelet Therapy with PRF uses only your own blood. With a simple blood draw and an advanced technology protocol, PRF is individually made for you - from you. The end results are improved healing response and significantly less recovery time.


If you suffered a small scrape on your knee, your body would react by creating a clot to stop the bleeding, form a scab, and finally regenerate healthy new skin. Platelet Fibrin Therapy is similar.

A small amount of blood is collected to create an advanced bioactive compound that will boost the healing forces found within your own blood to improve your healing. The procedure to obtain PRF is virtually painless—no more so than a routine blood test.

The therapy is 100% natural and additive-free. Natural growth factors present in your body are concentrated using PRF. Your own concentrated platelets and other key blood cells and their unique healing abilities are simply re-introduced at the site of your surgical procedure. As a result, your own body releases powerful healing proteins, and creates a scaffold for healing.


The PRF ™System, the only procedure of its kind, allows Dr. Sanchez to create as many PRF membranes as deemed necessary. After the blood sample is taken, the tubes are spun using a very specifi C centrifuge and protocol. The PRF membranes are then removed and pressed to the ideal thickness. PRF is not chemically altered and doesn’t contain any synthetic, animal, or other human ingredients.

After your PRF is created, it can be placed directly in/on surgical sites to immediately promote healing. PRF is also an excellent way for Dr. Sanchez to apply other regenerative materials to a specific surgical site as needed. The PRF fibrin membrane can be divided, combined with bone graft or collagen material, and made ready for any indication. Dr. Sanchez will determine the most appropriate PRF technique for you.


PRF™ is basically a bioactive “band-aid” that is created from your own blood and then placed in your surgery sites to promote healing. A sample of your blood is collected in a tube, just as it would be for a blood test. Dr. Sanchez then uses the unique PRF™ System to separate and concentrate certain important cells and active proteins by spinning your own blood in a dedicated centrifuge. After a fast preparation the bioactive PRF membrane created just from your own blood, is now ideal for your procedure.

When placed in surgery sites, PRF releases your body’s own natural healing proteins, creating a more efficent network for cells to enhance the healing process. Depending on your situation, your periodontist may supplement your PRF membrane with different biomaterials customized for your needs. For patients with significant bone loss, a combination of PRF and bone growth material may also be used to promote natural bone regeneration. For patients with significant gum recession, PRF can be combined with collagen or gum grafts to promote regeneration.


What is PRF?

PRF stands for Platelet Rich Fibrin. PRF contains Leukocytes and Platelets. Leukocytes are also known as white blood cells. They are part of the immune system and are responsible for helping heal our bodies. Platelets are also blood cells. They are responsible for attracting healing cells, creating blood membranes. They are also key cells for producing growth factors. Fibrin is another component of the blood that works with platelets to create blood membranes.

How are PRF membranes created?

PRF membranes are first created by taking a small blood sample from you. The blood sample tubes are spun with a centrifugation process. This creates a matrix or blood membrane. The matrix is then removed from the tube and placed in a device designed to compress the matrix to a desired thickness.

What is Platelet Fibrin Therapy?

Platelet Fibrin Therapy uses PRF membrane to promote healing.

Is PRF painful?

It is as painless as a routine blood draw.

How does PRF work to heal?

PRF provides a concentrated release of healing proteins, creates a scaffolding to help direct healing and also forms a more efficient network for cells to communicate with other cells and tissues. Due to the high concentration of platelets and leukocytes within the PRF membrane, the fibrin releases growth factors for up to 14 days after placement. This is when the body is repairing itself and needs the extra help to heal.

Are there any side effects or complications from PRF?

PRF uses your own blood, with NO additive whatsover. Reducing the risk of allergy, or side effects because your own concentrated platelets, with their own unique healing abilities are simply
re-introduced at the site of your gum recession.

What types of conditions are treated with PRF?

Currently PRF is being used for dental and oral maxillofacial surgical procedures, including gum recession, dental implants, bone defects, extraction sockets, sinus and dental ridge augmentation, palate defects, and maxillary bone atrophy.
