CGF and PRP
What is CGF?
CGF is Concentrated Growth Factor.
It is a process whereby your body uses its own regenerative healing abilities in order to promote the growth of new bone and soft tissue.
It therefore accelerates the healing time taken from when you have an implant inserted and when you get the restorative procedure done.
The time between these two appointments is very much reduced using CGF, resulting in better quality bone.
What is PRP?
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma.
For people who need bone graft surgery with their dental implants, PRP can be used to speed up the healing process.
Platelets are cells within your bloodstream that bind together and form a clot to stop bleeding when you cut yourself.
The procedure involves taking a blood sample and putting it in a centrifuge to separate the platelet growth factors from the red blood cells. The platelets help bind the new bone and soft tissue growth to the surgical area.
In dental surgery, implant and restorative procedures, the PRP is mixed to form gels, which can be applied to the graft and tooth socket areas, making it a more effective and natural healing process. It is very effective in promoting the integration of dental implants with bone. The grafts become bond faster with the bone due to the growth factors in PRP.
