At Harley Street Dental Clinic with Dr. Elisa Facco we are always researching new ways to improve the clinical process and make your visit to us as effective and pain-free as possible. With the arrival of PRGF technology, we can now offer a proven, safe and effective way to accelerate the healing process following placement of dental implants.
The process of implantology is invasive and leaves a small wound in the soft connective tissues of the gum and underlying jaw bone. With any wound, the body produces a special set of proteins which act at the site of the wound to stimulate the body’s natural repair process.
Using PRGF technology, we are able to isolate these healing proteins from a small sample of the patient’s blood and apply them directly to the area of the wound to accelerate the healing process.
To prepare the PRGF (“plasma rich in growth factor”) we take a small sample of the patient’s blood and treat it to produce a concentrated mixture of natural healing factors. This is then applied to the wound area in carefully measured therapeutic dose to optimise the healing process.
