In this video, the lower right second molar was extracted due to a failed root canal. The socket was grafted and an immediate dental implant (AnyRidge) was placed. After four months, the tooth was restored with screw retined zirconia crown. Using Choukroun’s PRF Centrifuge System i-PRF was used during grafting to address missing buccal bone. i-PRF is a liquid formulation of platelet rich fibrin (PRF) that is injected into the area and graft material. It is prepared by centrifuging at 700 rpm (60G) for 3 min. It studies it has “demonstrated the ability to release higher concentrations of various growth factors and induced higher fibroblast migration and expression of PDGF, TGF-β”1. Following placement of the graft material, an A-PRF membrane is used.
