Plasma Rich Growth Factor
PRGF (Plasma Rich Growth Factor) is used widely in Ophthalmology, Orthopedics, Wound Healing, and Implant Dentistry.
PRGF speeds up the healing process and helps to reduce rejection of implants, bone, and gum grafts. The growth factors also decrease swelling, dry sockets, and decrease inflammation in a surgical site.
The procedure is simple. A few small vials of blood are drawn, prior to the procedure, and placed in a calibrated centrifuge to isolate the growth factors in the plasma from the blood. The growth factor is then reinserted into the surgical site as a liquid, fibrin gel, or mixed in a composite of bone grafting material.
Your dentist utilizes PRGF to increase the predictability and comfort of your surgical procedures, including extractions, implants, bone grafts or gum grafts.
