Surgical Implant Placement With PRGF® Technology

With many surgical procedures that are performed at Newtonbrook Dental, using a patient's own growth factors is an advantagous innovative procedure that only enhances the surgical results for a patient. In this procedure on the same day of your scheduled surgery, the patient’s blood is drawn from the like any blood test. In order to process PRGF there will be a 20-40 ml blood-draw using an aseptic technique. Dr. Safari will separate the plasma from your blood through a centrifuge spinning process. The blood will be processed, activated and added to the surgical procedure. To activate PRGF, the blood is mixed with calcium chloride. To explain the benefits in further detail, Plasma is a component of your blood that contains special “growth factors,” or proteins, that help your blood to clot. It also contains proteins that support cell growth. Your isolated concentrated plasma will then be placed directly into the healing site.

The use of the plasma of a concentration of a patient's own platelets will help accelerate the healing and growth using each individual patient's own healing system to promote improvement and regeneration in the area. The idea is that injecting PRP into damaged tissues will stimulate your body to grow new, healthy cells and promote healing and growth.

Summary of Benefits:

  • Improved Regeneration in post extraction sites
  • Improved Regeneration of bone around implants
  • Improved Osseo-integration of implants
  • Faster wound healing as well as pain reduction

This process is often used in complicated extractions, Bone Grafting, Sinus lifting and most commonly used during implant  placement surgeries.
