ACCELERATE THE BODY’S OWN HEALING PROCESS
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a safe, simple, low risk and highly effective way to greatly enhance and accelerate healing after various dental procedures. This blood by-product, which is rich in platelets, can assist in tissue and bone regeneration, significantly decrease the rate of infection, reduce swelling and help assure the long-term success of dental surgery.
Best of all, platelet rich plasma is obtained from a small sample of a patient’s own blood, so it uses the body’s own generative powers to quickly and safely grow bones and soft tissue.
Dental Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy
For Accelerated Healing in Dental Procedures
Platelet rich plasma therapy (PRP) is an exciting new treatment that has achieved tremendous popularity in dental surgery. As an easy-to-use, low-cost biomaterial that facilitates tissue regeneration, PRP is a natural way to greatly enhance and accelerate healing after dental surgery.
PRP therapy can assist in tissue and bone regeneration, significantly decrease the rate of infection up to 10-fold (especially following molar extractions and prior/during implant placement), decrease swelling and help assure long-term success of dental surgery. In many clinical indications, PRP may be used alone to replace the high costs associated with bone grafts, connective tissue grafts and barrier membranes.
Platelet rich plasma is obtained from a small sample of the patient’s own blood so it uses the body’s own generative powers to quickly and safely grow bone and soft tissue. There is very little risk involved because we are simply speeding up the body’s own natural healing process.
How Does PRP Therapy Work?
The way PRP works is simple. PRP therapy uses injections of a patient’s own concentrated platelets to accelerate the healing process. Essentially, it uses your body’s own regenerative powers to help heal yourself.
To prepare PRP, a small amount of blood is taken and then ran through a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets. These concentrated platelets are then injected back into your tissue.
Platelets serve a number of applications in the healing process, including the release of growth factors that stimulate tissue recovery and activate the body’s own healing abilities. The more growth factors the body has access to while healing, the quicker wounds can heal.
