What is

Platelet Rich fibrin or what is also known as ( L-PRF), is a by-product of your own blood that is rich in platelets and Leukocytes (White Blood cells) present in a complex fibrin matrix to accelerate the soft tissue and hard tissue healing. Since it is made entirely from your own cells, it is completely compatible with your own body. It possesses amazing natural healing properties and is used often in dentistry. Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) was first pioneered by Dr. Joseph Choukroun, a physician in France, practiced as a cardiothoracic surgeon and an anesthesiologist.

What are the benefits of PRF?
