What is PRGF treatment?
If you are about to undergo dental surgery, you may be interested in PRGF treatment. The use of plasma rich growth factors can accelerate healing and recovery time. PRGF has shown tremendous promise for our patients in the arena of bone and tissue regeneration and aided tremendously in the reduction of postoperative issues.
What is PRGF?
When the body experiences an injury, our healing process is triggered to release proteins to stimulate healing and regeneration. Treatment with Plasma Rich Growth Factors uses the patient’s own blood plasma to stimulate this response. It has a long history of use in the medical field, but only in recent years has it become a major player in the field of dentistry.

What is involved with PRGF treatment?
Prior to the procedure, your surgeon will determine whether you are a candidate for PRGF treatment. Patients who have a history of blood clotting disorders cannot have PRGF.
PRGF requires the removal of a small sample of blood that is collected during your surgical appointment. The blood is then placed into a centrifuge which will isolate the patient’s plasma. The plasma is then placed into another centrifuge, where it is enriched with the patient’s own growth factor hormones.
At the end of the surgery, the surgeon will place the PRGF on the site of the wound to speed recovery. PRGF technology in dentistry helps to repair gum tissue around the bone by using the body’s own resources. The result is faster and more effective tissue regrowth and wound healing.
During any type of recovery or healing, the patient becomes at risk for infection or complication. PRGF speeds up healing to reduce this risk and minimize pain.
