Clinical Applications of PRGF
We use PRGF to perform a number of dental procedures, including bone grafting for dental implants, repairing fistulas between the sinus cavity and mouth, and repairing bone defects created by the removal of teeth and small cysts. PRGF can be generated in our office while you are undergoing a procedure.
About L-PRF Platelet Therapy
Dr. Joe Gaspari is among the few dentists in the area to offer L-PRF (leukocyte-platelet rich fibrin) platelet therapy as an all-natural approach to enhance the healing process. The best way to describe this treatment is that it is a bioactive band-aid for the wounded sites that is created from your own blood. We perform a blood draw to create an advanced bioactive compound that is placed at the surgery site to promote faster healing.
L-PRF Platelet Therapy at Our Practice
Dr. Gaspari may recommend L-PRF Platelet Therapy as part of a bone grafting or ridge augmentation procedure when you need additional bone tissue while Plasma Rich Growth Factor can assist with the natural bone regeneration process, encouraging faster healing. L-PRF Platelet Therapy has been cleared by the FDA and is 100% biocompatible because the compounds are derived from your own blood.
