Plasma Rich in Growth Factors (PRGF)
Dentistry is a field of medicine that has witnessed enormous advances: this new scientific and medical knowledge is allowing your Oral Surgeon to offer you more therapeutic possibilities than ever before.
We want to offer you the latest technology in bone and tissue regeneration: PLASMA RICH IN GROWTH FACTORS or PRGF.
What Does the PRGF Technique Involve?
When we suffer an injury, the human body releases proteins (cellular signals) to stimulate the process of repairing that injury. The PRGF technique isolates from the blood plasma these proteins which are responsible for wound healing and tissue regeneration. Once a therapeutic dose is applied to the treatment area, the repair process is accelerated. To carry out this process, it is necessary to draw a small amount of blood from the patient, from which the Plasma Rich in Growth Factors – or proteins – is obtained through a centrifuge spinning process. This plasma is then placed where healing or regeneration of tissue and bone is needed.
Are There Contraindications?
This is the only technique that makes use of the body’s own pharmacy and is offered after having proven its results in more than 10,000 patients in different fields of medicine. This process can be considered an autograft, since it deals with the patient’s own proteins which are responsible for carrying out ad accelerating the repair process. The PRGF procedure can be used on most patients and is recommended especially for those with healing problems or in need of stimulation of bone regeneration, as in the case of smokers and diabetics. With the help of plasma rich in growth factors we can appropriately stimulate bone growth after surgical intervention, and, at the same time, achieve rapid recovery.
The PRGF Process Will Achieve
- Regeneration of bone in post-extraction sites
- Regeneration of bone around implants
- Regeneration of bone in bony defects
- Regeneration of areas after extraction of cysts
- Improved osseointegration of dental implants
- Faster wound healing
How Does PRGF Contribute to Your Treatment?
Recovery and the healing process speed up so the risk of infection or any other post surgical complication is lessened. Using PRGF will guarantee a noticeable improvement, absence of pain and quicker healing. All in all, PRGF optimizes recovery for the patient.

I was home for Christmas break from school. I had let my wisdom teeth pain go for a while, but could wait no more. I called Dr. Jungels office and accommodated me immediately with a consult and surgery for my impacted teeth. The staff were very nice and Dr. Jungels was extremely knowledgeable as he explained everything to me about the surgery. Very professional and personalized care given before, during and the week following the surgery. Doctor called the day after surgey to see how I was doing. Such a rarity nowadays. Would highly recommend this practice if you want to make an unpleasant experience, as pleasant as humanly possible.

I had a stress crack in a molar from my orthodontic band which I didn’t have crowned— of course over time it worsened and needed to be pulled. Dr. Jungles was fabulous and I only had to be numbed! The whole procedure was quick and relevantly painless! He provided instructions, followed up with me and the whole staff was honestly the best I ever used! I love this office and would highly recommend!

- Nastassia D.
I had gastric bypass surgery years ago, an after effect is that my teeth have began to fall apart, I was able to make an appointment, be seen, and have the bad teeth removed all within a week, I will be following up for the remainder of my teeth and would trust no one else!
- Stanley G.
I was in severe pain for over a year with exposed roots and nerves, I went here and in one appointment the teeth were removed as well as impacted wisdom teeth, I have severe anxiety and they took care of that with local sedation, I am now home recovering and can not wait until the extraction pain goes away so I can see how my new mouth feels
- Stanley G.
Quite amazing, actually. As professional, courteous and efficient as one could imagine.
- Alan M.
