If you would like a faster recovery after oral surgery, come see us! At Arguello Dentistry, we offer a treatment containing Plasma Rich Growth Factors (PRGF), which can accelerate a patients’ healing and recovery time.
The field of dentistry has seen tremendous advances in recent years. The new scientific medical knowledge is enabling dental professionals to provide more therapeutic services than ever before. The team at Arguello Dentistry wants to offer patients the latest advanced technology in soft tissue and bone regeneration: PRGF (Plasma rich growth factors.)
WHAT IS PRGF?
When the human body suffers an injury, it will release proteins (cellular signals) that will stimulate the process for repairing an injury. The plasma rich growth factor technique isolates the proteins from the blood plasma. These isolated proteins are the ones that are responsible for tissue regeneration and wound healing. When a therapeutic dose of those proteins is applied to an area, they accelerate the healing process. It is necessary for us to draw a small amount of the patients’ blood to provide this treatment. A centrifuge spinning process enables us to obtain the plasma rich growth factors. We then place the plasma in the area where regeneration or healing of bone or tissue is needed.
HOW CAN THE PLASMA RICH GROWTH FACTORS CONTRIBUTE TO THE TREATMENT?
The risk of infection and other post-surgical complications is reduced by the accelerated healing and recovery process. The PRGF promotes quicker healing, limited to no pain or swelling, and a noticeable improvement.
THE PRGF PROCESS ACHIEVES:
- Regeneration of the bone in implants and post extraction sites
- Improved osseointegration with dental implant treatment
- Accelerated healing of wounds and a shorter period of recovery; the tissue heals and regenerates quickly for a faster recovery after dental treatments.
- The risk of infection is lowered. The blood used to obtain the plasma is taken directly from the patient, so the risk of organ rejection or disease transmission is eliminated.
- The amazing results are achieved through an easy and convenient procedure.
This technique is currently used in a number of different medical fields such as general surgery, plastic surgery, ophthalmology, dermatology, burns, traumatology, and oral and maxillofacial surgery, and it is providing remarkable results.
WHAT ARE THE CONTRAINDICATIONS?
PRGF is the only dental technique that makes use of the pharmacy in the patient’s own body. Its efficacy and safety have been proven in over 10,000 patients across various fields of medicine. The process is essentially an auto graft because it uses the patients’ own proteins, and those are the proteins responsible for accomplishing and accelerating the body’s repair process.
Most patients are good candidates for the PRGF procedure, and it is especially recommended for individuals who have difficulty healing or those who need bone regeneration to be stimulated, as is the case with diabetics and smokers.
With the PRGF technique, we can stimulate growth of the bone after surgery while accelerating recovery at the same time.
