Amniotic Fluid in Dentistry: Feedback?

Last Updated July 24, 2019

There is a wide body of research that shows that amniotic fluid contains many growth factors and is highly enriched with multiple therapeutic agents that can potentially promote cellular response and wound healing. I have seen a few companies that offer Amniotic Fluid in dentistry (e.g. Salvin has something called AmnioSpark). It would seem that mixing amniotic fluid with graft material could help with regeneration, similar to what is being done now with liquid PRF. However, the use of human amniotic fluid would appear to be easier than prp/prf. I haven’t been able to find much research on using Amniotic Fluid in this fashion, though I did find this paper, Using PRP and human amniotic fluid combination for osteogenesis in rabbit socket preservation. The study concluded that PRP + human amniotic fluid (PRHA) and human amniotic fluid alone (HAF) both seemed useful for enhancing bone formation. But, since there was no difference between HAF and PRHA, “it seems beneficial to use HAF due to its simplicity of application.” I’m wondering if anyone here is using human amniotic fluid for regenerative applications, and if so, what has been your experience? How exactly are you using it? Thanks
