GF-ONE PLUS® is the first integrated system CLASS II A CERTIFIED for the preparation of platelet concentrates specifically designed for bone surgery in dentistry.
Usually, in the blood separator market only the equipment for preparing platelet concentrates is provided, and these devices are normally designed for general use.
At UBGEN we have created instead a specific system to be used in dental surgery supported by technical training, start-up assistance and authorization of the dental practice.
This technology and its applications, which provide a unique and complete solution, allow the clinician to achieve exclusive benefits in terms of predictability of results.
Platelets play a key role in controlling the first phase of haemostasis. In recent years, the identification of some special molecules inside them - known as Platelet Growth Factors - has revealed new perspectives and possible applications in the medical and surgical field.
Numerous biochemical studies have shown a growth-stimulatory effect on different cell lines, with platelets acting as metabolic inducers: they release growth factors that immediately come into action, stimulating the regeneration of damaged tissues, and significantly accelerating the healing process.
Each of these identified factors targets a specific cell line (skin, muscle, ligaments and tendons, bone, blood vessels), acting on the metabolism of the treated tissue with a synergistic, anti-inflammatory and reparative action.
Growth factors are locally and constantly released through continuous platelet degranulation.
Growth factors main properties are listed below:
Several studies suggest that the use of a platelet concentrate, either alone or combined with other surgical techniques, or even as a support to implant devices, improves the final success of operations, significantly increasing patient’s comfort by reducing healing time.
In dentistry, the APG® method is used for:
In all these treatments, the adhesive nature of APG® facilitates the handling of implant material, improving hemostasis and wound closure compared to the traditional technique.
Furthermore, recent studies have shown that the use of platelet-rich plasma increases microvascular proliferation in the early stages of healing, followed by a better osteoblastic activity.
