EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (PRWEB) August 14, 2019
In an effort to make treatments for bone loss and receding gums in Eden Prairie, MN gentler and simpler for patients, periodontist Dr. Andrés R. Sánchez of PerioWest, has invested in VeinViewer Vision 2 technology. This modern device improves the process of receiving Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) stem cell grafts by allowing Dr. Sánchez to clearly identify veins in patients, even those with difficult-to-find veins. Once the veins are identified, Dr. Sánchez can easily collect a sample of blood to create a PRF compound and accelerate healing.
PerioWest is committed to minimally invasive and alternative treatments for common dental concerns. For patients who suffer from gum recession and jawbone loss, combining PRF with gum grafts and bone grafting treatments can improve the healing of each procedure. PRF is a natural compound that uses the patient’s own blood, making it 100 percent natural and additive-free. When the PRF is added to the surgical site for bone and gum loss, the body releases healing proteins that improve and accelerate healing.
The VeinViewer Vision 2 technology uses harmless, near-infrared light to illuminate the blood in patients’ veins. This gives a real-time visualization of the blood vessels and patterns through the skin. When Dr. Sánchez can more clearly see the veins, drawing a small sample of blood for use in PRF treatments becomes much easier. This leads to a more streamlined treatment for bone grafting and gum grafting, beginning with the blood draw and continuing through the entire improved healing process. Further advantages of the VeinViewer Vision 2 include:
- Improved first-time success
- Less patient anxiety and discomfort
- Extra puncture site selection
- Improved patient safety
- The ability to identify hard-to-see veins
- The ability to identify rolling veins
Patients in need of bone grafting or gum grafting treatment for receding gums can benefit from the effects PRF offers their health and treatment times. PerioWest and the practice’s periodontist, Dr. Sánchez, will now be using the VeinViewer Vision 2 on all blood draws to ensure accuracy, minimally invasive care and a better overall patient experience.
