Plasma Rich Growth Factor - Aliso Viejo, CA
Dr. Cho offers the latest technology in bone and tissue regeneration, known as Plasma Rich Growth Factors (PRGF). This is the only technique that makes use of the body’s own pharmacy and has proven its results in 10,000+ patients in different fields of medicine. This process can be considered an autograft, since it deals with the patient’s own proteins, which are responsible for carrying out and accelerating the repair process.
What is PRGF?
When we suffer any injury, the human body releases proteins (cellular signals) to stimulate the process of repairing that injury. The PRGF technique isolates from the blood plasma these proteins which are responsible for wound healing and tissue regeneration. Once a therapeutic dose is applied to the treatment area, the repair process is accelerated. To carry out this process, it is necessary to draw a small amount of blood from the patient, from which the Plasma Rich Growth Factors – or proteins – are obtained through a centrifuge spinning process. This plasma is then placed where healing or regeneration of tissue and bone is needed.
The PRGF procedure can be used on most patients and is recommended especially for those with healing problems or in need of bone regeneration, as in the case of smokers and diabetics.
Regeneration of bone in post-extraction sites
- Regeneration of bone around implants
- Regeneration of bone in bony defects
- Regeneration of areas after extraction of cysts
- Improved osseointegration of dental implants
- Faster wound healing
Results of PRGF
Currently, the PRGF technique is being used with remarkable results in different fields of medicine, such as oral and maxillofacial surgery, traumatology, burns, dermatology, opthamology, plastic surgery, and general surgery. Recovery and the healing process speed up so the risk of infection or any other post-surgical complication is lessened. Using PRGF will guarantee a noticeable improvement, absence of pain, and quicker healing.
