PRGF, or Plasma Rich in Growth Factors, is a new technology that shortens the recovery time following oral surgery. PRGF is becoming more and more popular when it comes to recovery time after dental implants in Miami Beach. Let’s take a look at what exactly PRGF is and how it works.
What are Growth Factors?
Growth factors are proteins that we all have and which carry out an essential function in complex processes of tissue repair and regeneration. They are naturally found in the plasma of each individual and inside platelets. The therapeutic application of growth factors stimulates and accelerates the processes of tissue healing and regeneration.
What is PGRF?
PGRF is the most advanced autologous Platelet-Rich Plasma system. It is based on the activation of the patient’s own platelets for the stimulation and acceleration of tissue healing and regeneration. PRGF technology allows for the patient’s healing proteins to be isolated from a small sample, apply them directly to your wound, and accelerate the healing process.
How is PRGF Prepared?
To produce the PRGF, a small sample of the patient’s blood is taken and prepared in a specific way. This creates a concentrated mix of product, which will be applied towards the end of the treatment to kick-start the healing process.
