DENTAL

Did you knowPRP from your own blood can be used to enhance and ensure the desired outcomes of numerous dental and oral maxillofacial procedures, including sinus lifts, dental implants and tooth extractions.  PRP has been shown to reduce post-op pain and swelling, allowing for improved function and aesthetics and greater patient satisfaction and comfort.  Learn how PRP can augment the successful outcomes of restorative dental procedures.

Is PRP right for me?

Dental and Oral Maxillofacial procedures are sometimes required to treat patients with moderate to severe dental or oral ailments and/or deformities. Patients living with these oral conditions are often plagued with pain and discomfort prior to seeking out treatment and, the corrective procedures performed by dentists and/or oral-maxillofacial surgeons can lead to a painful recovery and rehabilitation period.

PRP may be an effective treatment option for you if you suffer from or will be undergoing any of the following:

  • Sinus lifts
  • Dental implants
  • Tooth extractions
  • Oral pain and swelling
  • Endodontic procedures
  • Alveolar bone loss
  • Jaw surgery
  • Treatment for oral cancer
  • Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder

Results have shown that PRP augments natural hemostasis and stimulates the processes involved in new tissue growth and regeneration. When PRP is used in oral-maxillofacial procedures, pain and swelling are reduced and patients return to normal function faster.

How does PRP work?

Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP is an autologous blood therapy that uses a patient’s own blood to stimulate a healing response in damaged tissues. The body’s normal healing processes are dependent upon blood flow. Whether an open cut or a micro tear in a tendon, the body signals for and recruits platelets to the area of injury, releasing growth factors and stem cells to initiate healing and regeneration.

Today’s technology allows us to sequester and concentrate platelets from your blood and initiate that same healing process, in an accelerated fashion, by increasing the baseline concentration of platelets by four to seven times. PRP delivers a powerful dose of growth factors to the injury site and dramatically enhances the healing process.

If surgery is required, PRP can be used to:

  • Reduce inflammation and bruising
  • Increase range of motion
  • Reduce risk of infection
  • Reduce scarring
