Plasma rich growth factor (PRGF) is considered a breakthrough procedure for bone and soft tissue regeneration. PRGF is a component that is derived from the patient’s own blood that helps speed healing and stimulates regeneration of bone and soft tissue. It is especially useful for patients undergoing dental surgery or bone grafting before placement of dental implants.
Yes. Since PRGF is a derivative of the patient’s own blood, there is no worry about disease transmission and inflammation of the surgical site is greatly reduced. Our dentists in Issaquah, WA, are able to do this procedure right in the office, so our patients do not have the added expense of using a hospital or blood bank for the harvesting procedure.
PRGF is produced by taking a small amount of the patient’s blood and running it through a centrifuge to separate out the growth factors in the blood. These natural growth factors are applied to the surgical area to speed healing while encouraging the bone and soft tissue to regenerate. It is a godsend for patients who have lost bone or soft tissue because of injury or disease.
PRGF is contraindicated in patients with hematologic disease or bleeding disorders.

- Fosters Faster Healing: The biggest advantage of the PRGF system is that it helps speed tissue regeneration, thus helping patients make a quicker recovery.
- Biocompatibility: A small amount of the patient's blood is used to separate the growth factors, therefore reducing the risks generally associated with donor blood.
- Patient Convenience: The PRGF® can be created onsite at our dental office while you undergo your treatments.
- Proven Application: The PRGF® technology has been used in the recovery process of a range of medical applications, including cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries. It also holds both European and FDA approval.
