Following tooth loss caused by caries, root infection, periodontal disease or restorative failures, the supporting bone undergoes severe resorption. Reduced volume and quality of the residual alveolar ridge offer clinical challenges for both oral surgeons and dentists to replace the missing tooth by means of dental implants in the most appropriate position. On the other hand, the presence of remaining tissue defect around the implants result in aesthetic disturbances and food accumulation, as well as poor implant-bone support.
L-PRF stands for Leucocyte Platelet Rich Fibrin, which refers to novel biotechnology that employs individual own blood (autologous) and concentrated form of platelet (APC). This biomedical procedure was created some years ago and eventually developed to promote tissue healing.
Certain regenerative cells and tissue growth factors are concentrated in a blood test tube using a dedicated centrifuge. After the application of the blood clot a series of bioactive growth factors and cells are released into the tissue defect after the regenerative surgical is undertaken which gradually enhance the tissue healing. Dentist in London Dentists Specialists combined L-PRFwith different graft replacement materials to restore the hard tissue defects caused by a significant bone loss in different regenerative surgical procedures.
The treatment involves is additive-free and 100% natural requiring no artificial chemical compounds with no risks of contagious micro-organisms transferred by other humans or animals. Therefore, there would be no allergies or side effects following the application of L-PRF. As a result, your own body will produce proteins and other bioactive agents as well as fibrin scaffolds to accelerate and optimise the healing process.
What is L-PFR
L-PRF or Leucocyte Platelet Rich Fibrin is comprised of white cells, platelets, growth factors, organised fibrin network.
What types of treatments apply L-PRF
London Specialists Dentists use of L-PRF in most holistic regenerative surgeries including dental and oral maxillofacial including dental implants, extraction sockets, sinus augmentation. L-PRF has also been used successfully in other medical fields such as orthopaedics, dermatology, hair transplant.

Our specialist Dentist in London Specialists Dentists use the latest technology and innovations in all fields of dentistry. Intra-Spin™ System provides a biologically predictable centrifuging protocol that does not contain any synthetic, animal, or human traces, hence the produced L-PRF is preserved by a strong fibrin-matrix mesh improving its biological and handling properties. This purest form of L-PRF could be directly placed into the tissue defect or combined with the other biomaterials (L-PRF Block™) to promote the healing process.
