Immediately following tooth removal, a healing process begins that affects the eventual alveolar bone volume and architecture of the alveolar ridge. Satisfactory and timely healing are essential to obtain ideal functional reconstruction. Traumatic removal of a tooth, or a poor healing response, may lead to excessive bone loss delaying tooth replacement, requiring expensive and time-consuming reconstructive surgeries, or even the inability to be corrected. The Plasma Rich in Growth Factors (PRGF-Endoret) has shown its therapeutic potential effect to minimize the consequences of this aggression, promoting the regeneration of both hard and soft involved tissues.

Further study details as provided by Fundación Eduardo Anitua:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of regenerated post-extraction sockets [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Regenerated bone volume [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Measurement of the regenerated bone volume at final follow-up in relation to the initial post-extraction socket total volume measured by CT-Scanner and expressed as a percentage.

  • Post-operative pain (VAS) [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Soft Tissue Healing Index [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Inflammation [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Using a specific 0 to 3 Inflammation Score

  • Adverse events or complications [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
