Use of Platelet Rich Fibrin for the Treatment of Muco-Gingival Recessions: Novel Improvements in Plastic Aesthetic Surgery Utilizing The Fibrin Assisted Soft Tissue Promotion (FASTP) Technique

Abstract:

The use of platelet rich fibrin (PRF) has been utilized for a wide variety of procedures in both the medical and dental fields. Results from many randomized clinical trials have now pointed to its marked ability to promote soft-tissue wound healing where PRF has been documented to facilitate wound closure and speed regeneration of muco-gingival recessions. Within this chapter, a systematic review of the various clinical studies utilizing PRF for recession coverage procedures is presented. Furthermore, a new surgical concept is introduced following years of clinical experience with PRF described as the “Fibrin Assisted Soft Tissue Promotion” FASTP technique.
