What is PRGF?
Plasma Rich in Growth Factors (PRGF) is an innovative technique that uses your own blood plasma to speed up the healing process and minimise pain following surgical treatment. It transforms the way your body recovers from a procedure, far reducing the downtime needed. Although relatively new in dentistry, PRGF has been used to great effect in the medical field for a long time.
At Hurst Dental & Implant Clinic, we use the PRGF system in all our implant cases. We have seen first-hand how effective the technology is at elevating the healing and recovery process for our implant patients, reducing risk and promoting a successful outcome.Contact us
What are the benefits of PRGF?
PRGF is a completely safe, proven and trusted treatment, which has been used to great effect on many patients.
In implant cases, PGRF reduces the risk of side effects or pain, and enables your final replacement teeth to be fitted more quickly.
With PRGF, your recovery time is far reduced, as the blood plasma stimulates a healing and regenerative response in your body.
The PRGF process itself is pain-free, using a small sample of your blood. It also minimises your post-surgery pain.
What does PRGF treatment involve?
We first ensure you are a suitable candidate for PRGF treatment, with no prior history of blood clotting disorders. We discuss the treatment process with you, making sure you know what it entails.
We take a small sample of your blood, which is placed in a centrifuge to isolate the plasma within it. The plasma is then enriched with your own growth factor hormones, which are used in the natural healing process.
After your implant surgery, we apply the plasma onto the affected area. The PRGF treatment technology accelerates your healing, creating faster tissue regrowth and regeneration whilst reducing your post-operative pain. PRGF is entirely part of you, meaning it is completely compatible with your body.
