Human growth factors are proteins located in your blood that permits your body to heal. When grafting and placing implants, we often use your own growth factors in order to speed the healing process of dental surgeries. We do so by isolating these growth factors from your blood, and incorporating them into the site being regenerated.
Incorporating the growth factors and healing treatment into our dental surgeries has many benefits to you. The benefits include: less swelling, less pain, and grafts and implants heal quicker and better with fewer post-operative complications.
- Another way that we use growth factors for healing is by making a “bandage” called fibrin.
- We place this bandage over the surgery site, which then reduces bleeding, swelling, and pain complications.
- The amazing aspect of this bandage lies in the fact that it is made from your own blood, which means the fibrin gets absorbed at a fast rate (approximately two weeks), and then creates new gum or bone tissue!
