Advanced Healing with PRGF
Plasma Rich in Growth Factors (PRGF) is a recent technology that is transforming the patient experience in dentistry because it speeds up healing and transforms the way dentists carried out treatment.
Thinking about the recovery time following a procedure can deter patients from dental treatments they stand to benefit from for fear that they won’t be able to eat or will be uncomfortable.
However, the PRGF system means that treatment can be undertaken with minimal disruption to your normal routine, and it offers greater comfort post-treatment. Read more
PRGF works by taking a small amount of blood from the patient and placing it in a centrifuge-spinning device to isolate a type of protein from the sample. These proteins are used by our bodies in tissue healing, encouraging regeneration.
By applying this protein to the area of treatment or surgery, patients are able to accelerate their own natural healing process.
It’s a procedure that helps the body in a non-chemical, non-invasive way and has already been used widely across Europe.
