PRGF is the abbreviation for Plasma Rich in Growth Factors. Its use is a promising and safe approach in dentistry. PRGF offers the following advantages:
PRGF for Dental Treatments

- it facilitate tissue regeneration;
- it reduces the risk of infections and complications;
- it reduces post-treatment discomfort.
Dental treatments which may use plasma rich in growth factors
- implant surgery;
- bone and gingival grafts;
- dental extractions.
Process used to produce PRGF
After assessing whether you are a good candidate for this type of treatment, a small amount of blood is taken and inserted into the centrifuge. This separates the plasma from the red and white blood cells and thus produces the plasma rich in growth factors. Note that patients with clotting problems cannot benefit from this treatment.
