Does It Hurt to Get a Dental Implant?
Let's face it. Everyone who undergoes any kind of surgery is worried about pain and how long the healing process will take. Especially with oral surgery, patients often expect the worst: Will the procedure be painful? Will my face be totally swollen? Will I be in pain after the surgery despite taking pain medication? How many days will I have to miss work? In addition, many patients don't tolerate pain medication well and can't take anything to relieve the pain, yet they sometimes must still undergo oral surgery, dreading the suffering afterwards. But, there is now an advanced solution that can make all the difference: growth factors.
One of the latest technologies in regenerative medicine is plasma rich in growth factors (PRGF). PRGF involves taking a small amount of the patient's own blood and separating out the platelets with a centrifuge. This procedure is fast and is done just minutes before the patient's surgery. During the surgery, the platelets are applied directly to the surgical site. Since these platelets are taken from the patient's own body, they are 100% safe, biocompatible, and effective. Once applied, the platelets begin their extraordinary work of stimulating the healing of the tissue and regenerating bone, decreasing inflammation and pain, and reducing recovery time. There have never been any negative side effects of using PRGF, but only a few doctors have invested in this technology for their dental implant patients.
