At our office, we are dedicated to providing you with a comfortable experience. Regenerative medicine is a breakthrough treatment type that allows you to heal faster and more comfortably after a procedure. We are pleased to provide platelet-rich plasma therapy to provide you with the best possible experience at our office.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP), also called plasma rich in growth factors (PRGF) or platelet concentrate (PC), is a particular type of protein found in your blood. To speed up your healing process and ensure that your experience is as pleasant as possible, we take a small amount of blood before the treatment begins. Using a centrifuge, we isolate the PRP protein. This protein is used by our bodies as part of the natural healing process to regenerate tissues and repair wounds. PRP proteins are applied to the treatment area to help you benefit from your own natural healing abilities. Using PRP proteins accelerates the regeneration of tissue and the healing process.
Platelet-rich plasma treatment is safe, non-invasive and non-chemical. Regenerative medicine and dentistry may be especially useful for treatments like dental implants that typically require a longer healing period and may involve bone and tissue regeneration. For more information on platelet-rich plasma treatment and regenerative medicine, we welcome you to call or visit us today to schedule your consultation with our dentist. We look forward to caring for you!
