When we talk about growth factors, we are referring to a regenerative medicine technique that uses the human body’s own resources to heal itself.
The use of PRGF is a 100% autologous solution that accelerates healing processes, reducing inflammation and the risk of infection. PRGF also improves gum regeneration and the bone integration of implants.
It represents a true revolution in the field of dentistry. The techniques are minimally invasive, personalized and biosecure: they do not cause rejection or allergies.
PRGF come from the patient’s own blood. From a blood sample, we obtain a group of proteins (growth factors) which are capable of repairing the body’s tissues naturally. These proteins are found in platelets and plasma, whose natural function is to regenerate and repair our tissue.
Growth factors are used in bone and maxillary soft tissue regeneration treatments. They provide spectacular results in facial cosmetic procedures (rejuvenation), as well as treatment of sores and wounds.
Dr. Javier Carrete was the first dentist in Galicia to incorporate growth factors into his daily practice.
El Instituto de Cirugía Oral e Implantología cuenta con uno de los más importantes avances de la Odontología moderna, la fabricación de prótesis con tecnología CAD-CAM, diseñadas y fabricadas por ordenador.
Se trata de equipos de última tecnología que permiten realizar trabajos protésicos con la máxima precisión, ya sea para implantes dentales o bien en odontología restauradora estética (coronas, carillas, etcétera).
El escaneado digital tridimensional del espacio interdental o del diente suelto es el primer paso. El ordenador diseña de manera exacta la prótesis, que el equipo reproduce con el material elegido.
El sistema CAD-CAM aporta innumerables ventajas. Reduce el número de visitas al especialista, acorta los tiempos quirúrgicos, permite abordar cirugías sin incisión y facilita una mayor exactitud quirúrgica.
There are various types of lasers which can be used in dentistry, depending on the aim. The difference is based on the length of the wave and the characteristics of the tissue where the laser is to be used. One of the most common ways of classifying lasers is by their intensity: high or low.
The most frequent uses of lasers are:
1. Cosmetic dentistry.
2. Dental hyperesthesia (sensitivity disorder).
3. Soft-tissue surgery.
5. Removing peridontal pockets.
6. Removing the pain of mouth sores.
Statistics confirm it. 65% of dental service users experience anxiety. Some patients are unable to face certain treatments without feeling some degree of stress, or at least discomfort. Some even experience true fear of the dentist.
At the Instituto de Cirugía Oral e Implantología, we are aware of this reality and so we offer a solution: waking sedation. Dr. Javier Carrete’s clinic not only has the necessary equipment, we have also added an anaesthesiologist to our medical team. This enables us to offer this easy, painless alternative to those who would like it.
When under waking sedation, the patient never loses the ability to react to physical stimuli or verbal instructions given by the specialist. As they experience no stress, the amount of pain decreases. In addition, they are monitored throughout the process, enabling the anaesthesiologist to adjust the dose based on how long the procedure is expected to take. The patient’s blood pressure and vital signs are also checked in the most effective manner.
