Bone Regeneration in A Coruña

Plasma Rich in Growth Factors (PRGF) is another factor that helps us to prevent bone loss, for example after an extraction or operation on a jaw abscess where otherwise a hole would remain. Using PRGF, we fill in these cavities so that the bone regenerates and we can then fit dental implants with a suitable bone base.

The PRGF is obtained from the patient’s own blood. Using a small amount, it is easy to obtain a platelet concentrate that is rich in growth factors, which are simply proteins that are capable of stimulating tissue growth.

As a result we can prepare areas where dental implants will be fitted at a later date.
Using this technique, we can also regenerate bone that has already been lost, for example in narrow jaws. When dental implants expose threads because of their thickness, we can cover them with PRGF together with other materials to create a thicker bone mass. We can also add height by filling in the paranasal sinuses with this material, mixed with bone substitutes (sinus lift), making it possible to fit dental implants in the rear of the upper jaw, an area that is often difficult to work with due to the low height of the bone, which is nearly always of poor quality.

Grafts

Grafts help us recover lost tissues due to different causes, either by dental extractions, cysts or need to increase the amount of bone to perform a satisfactory rehabilitation treatment.

In the case of dental implants, for its placement it is necessary to have a certain amount of bone, both in height and width and quality. The use of different types of grafts help us solve this lack of tissue.

There are different types of grafts:

  • Autologous: obtained from the own body. We can remove bone from different areas of the maxilla or other parts of the body such as the hip or tibia. The graft donor area is determined by the required amount of bone and bone quality.
  • Animal origin (xenografts): These materials are mainly from bovine or porcine origin. These materials are strictly prepared, sterilized and passed through the strictest controls to be used in humans. All of them are approved by the competent authorities for its use.
  • Human origin (allogeneic): They come from genetically different individuals. As xenografts, they are strictly processed to remove any incompatible antigen present.
  • Artificial (alloplastic): These materials include Hydroxyapatite, Calcium Sulfate, ceramics etc.

The professional will be responsible for selecting the type of graft required for each case.
