We are dedicated to helping you have a pleasant experience at our office and helping you maintain excellent oral and overall health. To do so, we use platelet-rich plasma therapy. Platelet-rich plasma therapy is a type of regenerative therapy, a kind of treatment that helps you have a faster and more comfortable recovery time.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a protein that is in your blood that helps the body regenerate tissues and heal injuries. PRP is also known as plasma rich in growth factors (PRGF) and platelet concentrate (PC). During the PRP treatment process, we take a little of your blood and isolate the protein by using a centrifuge, which is a machine that separates parts of a fluid through centrifugal force. Afterwards, we place the PRP proteins in the area being treated. Using the body’s natural PRP proteins helps the tissues to regenerate at a faster rate and quickens the recovery process.
This safe treatment is not invasive and does not utilize any chemicals. Platelet-rich plasma therapy can help shorten recovery time after surgical treatments, such as dental implants, that require the regeneration of bone and tissue. If you would like to learn more about this treatment, schedule a consultation with your dentist by calling or visiting our office.
