Leukocyte Platelet Rich Fibrin Bone Graft – LPRF
LPRF is a technique that separates leukocytes, platelets, growth factors, and proteins from your blood and combines it into a membrane that helps the healing of soft tissue and aids in bone recovery. LPRF aids in the healing in procedures such as extractions allowing for a faster recovery.
The LPRF Process:
A small amount of blood is typically drawn from a vein (similar to a routine blood draw for lab work) and spun in our centrifuge to isolate and concentrate plasma and platelets. These isolated platelets are then placed where dental treatment has occurred to aid in healing. There is no risk of rejection or an allergic reaction because it’s your own blood that is used.
