Platelet rich growth factors (pgrf)
Dentistry continues to change with innovative scientific advances. One of several significant improvements has occurred in the area of healing. Accelerated healing was once a goal; now it is a reality thanks to the use of Platelet-Rich Growth Factors, or PRGF.
PRGF is an inclusion into medical and dental therapies, intended specifically for reduced recovery time and enhancement of post-operative results. The clear benefit to our patients is improved comfort after dental treatments.
Prgf and dental implants
Historically, the dental implant procedure requires a fair amount of time for recovery. While this may not necessarily mean that discomfort will linger for months - it doesn't - the idea of a lengthy wait between the insertion of implants and the placement of final restorations can be a deterrent for many people. Many potential implant patients fear they will be in pain or that they will not be able to eat normal foods for weeks or months. With PRGF, these concerns can be alleviated.
When we incorporate Platelet-Rich Growth Factors into implant treatment, patients notice that very little about their normal routine is disrupted by their procedure.
How it works
Platelet-Rich Growth Factors are present in the blood. Before implant surgery, we will draw perform a standard blood draw. The blood is "spun" in a centrifuge, which separates out the specific proteins we want; proteins that the body uses to heal injury and regenerate tissue. After the insertion of implants, we apply the patient's own Growth Factors into the surgical site where they continually work to promote healing.
Quick, effortless healing is optimal for any surgical patient. PRGF has been extensively used across Europe with great success. We are pleased to have the training and state-of-the-art equipment to maximize each of our patient's own healing capacity by working in concert with the body's regenerative powers.
Our highly-trained staff is committed to your comfort during and after your dental procedures. If you have questions about this adjunct treatment, we are happy to speak with you. Just give us a call at 020 8629 1433.

"My experience at the clinic was one of complete trust in their professionalism. I always felt important to them and that they cared about me and my treatment. The staff there was always warm, funny and friendly and I now look forward to future check-up appointments instead of dreading them."
