What is PRGF?
At 3 Step Smiles, we recognize that a swift recovery is your utmost priority after undergoing invasive dental treatments such as surgery or grafting. Let us introduce you to the Key to Your Speedy Recovery: PRGF.
PRGF is an innovative regenerative therapy.
Plasma Rich in Growth Factors (PRGF) might not have surfaced in your dental conversations previously, but we’re here to shed light on a technique we’ve been seamlessly incorporating for an extended period, and with very compelling reasons.
Platelets are well-known for their clotting abilities, but they also contain growth factors that can trigger cell reproduction and stimulate tissue regeneration or healing in the treated area. Platelet-rich plasma is simply blood that contains more platelets than normal.
Are you ready to unlock the secret to a quicker and smoother recovery after dental treatment? Dive into the world of PRGF at 3 Step Smiles and experience the transformative difference firsthand.
Interested in why PRGF stands out as the ultimate choice for a swift recovery? It’s because PRGF capitalizes on your body’s remarkable regenerative capabilities, leaving no room for synthetic materials or risky interventions. At 3 Step Smiles, your well-being is our top priority, and our commitment lies in providing you with the latest advancements in dental care.
Qualites of PRGF
Acceleration of the recovery and healing process after undergoing a surgical treatment in the oral cavity.
Reduction of inflammation in the affected area. Reduction of infection in smokers and diabetics.
Improved bone regeneration after tooth extraction and less possibilities of rejection on dental implants.
When to use PRGF
Our doctors recommend the use of Plasma Rich in Growth Factors in the following cases, although the situation of each individual patient must always be taken into account:
- In people undergoing surgery, when an implant is placed immediately after a dental extraction.
- For cases where the patient has undergone a complex tooth extraction and must wait for some time before placing implants.
- In bone regeneration treatments.
- In cystectomies or apicoectomy surgeries.
Other uses for PRGF
Plasma Rich in Growth Factors stimulates the production of collagen. Therefore, we can also apply it to the patient’s face by means of a device specifically used in facial aesthetic treatments.
The result is juicy and glowing skin, as it delays skin-aging. Plasma also helps us both to prepare the skin for summer sun exposure and to repair the damage caused by UVA and UVB rays.
In our Dental Clinic we use the best technology for plasma. We use it in surgeries and dental after-care.
What is the
process to obtain
It is a fairly simple procedure; Is created with a blood sample from the patient. Se sample is placed it into a device called a centrifuge that rapidly spins the sample.
As a result of this centrifugation procedure, the platelets are separated from the red and white blood cells and a clot of plasma rich in growth factors is obtained, Later, this plasma is used in surgery, placing it in the affected area and sutured.
