Modern technology and proven techniques will help to safely and comfortably place and restore dental implants for beautiful, healthy smiles. Often times for faster healing following a dental implant surgery, Platelet-Rich Plasma, or PRP, can be helpful.
What is PRP?
The human body has an amazing ability to heal itself. PRP uses your body’s own substances to hasten regeneration of soft and hard tissues. Rich in Platelet-Derived Growth Factors (PDGFs) and fibrin, PRP encourages healing at the implant placement site by jump-starting tissue growth and increasing bone density. Using PRP, I can promote faster healing to provide a firm foundation for your implants. PRP has been successfully used for many years in a wide variety of medical applications. Because a patient’s own blood is used, there’s no risk of rejection.
How is PRP obtained?
If you qualify for PRP, I’ll draw a very small amount of your blood and place it in a centrifuge. The centrifuge will spin your blood to separate the platelets and growth factors. I’ll extract the healing-rich PRP and inject it into the site to be treated. The process is safe and fast. For your comfort, I can administer soothing sedation prior to your PRP procedure.
The Amazing Result
With PRP, patients experience improved healing using their body’s own natural substances. Faster regeneration of tissue puts patients one step closer to the ultimate goal: a fantastic smile!
