Gentle Dental in Putney is committed to providing dentistry that makes a difference. Our team is proud to include an innovative new technology into several areas of patient care.
Introducing PRGF®-Endoret® technology
PRGF®-Endoret® stands for Plasma Rich in Growth Factors. This level of care allows us to improve outcomes significantly, dramatically reducing the healing time after surgical services and periodontal treatments. PRGF®-Endoret® uses the patient's own platelets to activate further stimulation, which accelerates the healing and regeneration of tissue.
Think about it! It is possible for your dentist to help your body regenerate oral tissues!
There are several advantages to the PRGF®-Endoret® system used in our office. This system is used in both medical and dental settings, benefiting patients by:
- Accelerating the healing process
- Improving the osseointegration process, maximizing implant treatment
- Aiding in healing by reducing inflammation around clots formed after treatment
- Improving the predictability and biosafety of the implant procedure
In oral surgeries, PRGF®-Endoret® effectively promotes regeneration in both bone and soft tissues, decreasing the risk of post-extraction defects. In implantology, implants wetted in the PRGF solution become covered in a protein-laced film that facilitates osseointegration. With osseointegration the vital component to success of implant placement, the improved process is highly beneficial to the outcome.
PRGF®-Endoret® in periodontal therapy
Periodontal disease is a serious problem faced by most adults. This condition is progressive and, if not properly managed, threatens the various supportive structures that stabilize teeth, including the ligaments and the bone in which teeth are braced.
Treating periodontal disease with scaling and root planing may effectively slow the progression of infection through periodontal tissues, but this treatment alone can do nothing to regenerate damaged tissue. If support has been lost, regeneration is incredibly important.
Up until now, periodontal regeneration treatments have been rather unpredictable. PRGF®-Endoret® seems to increase a favourable outcome significantly.
The dental team at Gentle Dental Putney is dedicated to providing each patient with the best possible care. Treatments are based on the specific needs of the individual patient. The most suitable, innovative technologies are integrated into treatment for maximum benefit.
