Lakewood Ranch, FL (PRWEB) December 16, 2014
Dr. Lindsay Eastman now offers Lakewood Ranch, FL patients the opportunity to enjoy the health benefits of Plasma Rich in Growth Factor (PRGF), which helps stimulate accelerated healing after procedures such as bone and soft tissue regeneration.
PRGF is a plasma-rich protein that expedites soft tissue healing and enhances bone growth. With PRFG, Dr. Eastman can now give patients a more efficient recovery and better outcomes after periodontal procedures, such as dental implant placement and bone grafting.
PRFG is highly effective because it uses natural healing processes. Normally, cells in the body release growth factor at the site of wounds, and the amount of growth factor released relates directly to how efficiently the body heals. The PRFG derivation process is simple and affordable enough that each of Dr. Eastman’s patient can receive PRFG derived from his or her own blood, which mitigates the risk of disease transmission. PRFG can be harvested in Dr. Eastman’s office in Lakewood Ranch, FL during any outpatient procedure. After drawing a small amount of blood from the patient, Dr. Eastman uses a centrifuge to separate the PRFG. Within just 40 minutes, the PRFG is ready for use.
PRFG offers particular benefits for procedures such as dental implant placement and bone grafting because it promotes bone growth. By the time most people visit a periodontist for dental implant placement, they have already lost alveolar bone density. This loss is a process that occurs inevitably after natural teeth are lost and stimulation to the bone stops. People with low bone density levels may need bone grafts to become eligible for implants. PRFG can enhance the results of bone grafting. Even people who do not require bone grafts may benefit from receiving PRFG during dental implant placement. Implants stabilize bone density levels, and PRFG can complement this effect by increasing growth.
PRFG may not be the ideal solution for every patient. Individuals who suffer from hematological or bleeding disorders are not good candidates for the treatment. For small surgical sites and surgeries that do not involve implant placement, PRFG may not be worth using. However, in other cases, PRFG may offer significant benefits. Anyone preparing for a procedure such as implant placement or bone grafting is encouraged to schedule a consultation with periodontist Dr. Eastman to determine whether incorporating PRFG would be advantageous. Patients can visit Dr. Eastman’s website or call his office in Lakewood Ranch, FL, to set up a consultation.
