PRGF-Endoret® (Plasma Rich in Growth Factors - endogeneus regenerative technology) is a state-of-the-art biotechnology tool for bone augmentation and expansion, sinus lifting, and better osteointegration of implants. It replaces the existing artificial materials for bone grafting.
The procedure is very simple and painless. The patient’s blood is drawn at the dentist’s office. Blood cells and plasma are then separated from the blood with centrifugation and blood plasma fractionation. After that, bone augmentation (enhancement) material and fibrin membrane are made out of the patient's plasma by special procedures, which is used for covering the implant insertion site or augmentation site.
The difference and improvement with respect to other methods of fabricating fibrin membranes from the patient's blood is that in the PRGF-Endoret's procedure, blood cells, and leukocytes are separated from the plasma and there is no inflammatory response. The next and biggest advantage of the PRGF-Endoret technology is that the patient’s plasma preserves its own growth factors and growth hormones, which is many times better than using “artificial bones” and collagen membranes which do not have these factors.
An undamaged patient's bone is collected using a special method of preparing a location for an implant, the so-called “biological drilling”. This bone retains all “live” bone properties at the preparation site and is mixed with the patient's plasma, which provides the best possible bone augmentation (grafting) material.
This biotechnology has found an extensive use in dental medicine, especially oral surgery, and we use it in dental implant procedures, bone and soft tissue augmentation, sinus lifting, apicoectomy, wound closure after tooth extraction, periodontal procedures, and permanent rejuvenation procedures.
The Biotechnology Institute and Dr Eduardo Anita, who 20 years ago discovered and over the years perfected this biomedical procedure, can boast about the success rate of implantation with the incredible 99.9%.
The fact that the knee injury of one of the best athletes in the world (Rafael Nadal) and injuries of many of the most famous football players (from teams like Real, Barcelona, Chelsea, Manchester United, Porto) were rehabilitated with this technology says a lot about its efficacy. It has also found its application in sports medicine, ophthalmology, dermatology, and cosmetic surgery.
Dental Studio Flegar is a certified BTI office and possesses certificates for the application of PRGF-Endoret® biotechnology.
