Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) September 11, 2014
People who want dental implants but have low bone density levels can find a solution when they visit Dr. Scott Silverstein and Dr. Matthew Parker, who provide a new approach to bone grafting with PRGF (Plasma Rich Growth Factor). PRGF is a protein that can help in regenerating bone and soft tissue. It also promotes bone growth, and when it is incorporated into a bone graft, can help patients achieve bone density levels that will support dental implant surgery. After visiting an Ohio periodontist for implants, patients enjoy numerous long-term benefits, including security and the stabilization of existing bone density.
Many people who have lost teeth lack the bone density needed to support dental implants, which makes a bone graft necessary. PRGF for use in bone grafting can help these patients grow new bone from their own cells. In contrast, conventional bone grafting often relies on bone from bovine material, human donations, or other parts of the patient’s own body. When using PRGF, the protein stimulates local bone growth and can even aid in healing, promoting a faster recovery period for patients.
The use of PRGF may help more patients qualify for dental implant surgery and enjoy the lasting benefits of implants. Dr. Parker and Dr. Silverstein often recommend implants because they preserve existing bone density by stimulating the alveolar bone the way natural teeth do. Implants also offer a secure, lasting replacement for missing teeth. Implants never slip, shift, or damage other teeth; they look and function similarly to natural teeth. Patients who fail to visit an Ohio periodontist soon after losing their teeth may lose so much bone density that they are not good candidates for implants. Bone grafting using PRGF may remedy that concern.
Anyone interested in dental implants should visit Dr. Silverstein and Dr. Parker, periodontists in Ohio, as soon as possible. Patients who pursue dental implant placement soon after losing teeth may not even need bone grafting to prepare for the procedure. Interested patients are encouraged to call Dr. Silverstein and Dr. Parker at Ohio Valley Center for Periodontics & Implants to request a consultation.
