A Revolutionary Way To Heal After Treatment
Are you concerned about your healing time after your next dental procedure? It is a valid concern because certain procedures, like dental implants, have a longer healing and recovery time than less extensive treatments, such as a filling. There is a newer treatment option we now offer that can promote faster healing using your own plasma. Continue reading to learn more about this revolutionary healing option.
Why Do We Use Platelet-Rich Plasma Injections?
Following more involved treatments, such as dental implants, it is not uncommon for patients to experience healing times that can last quite a few weeks. For many years, platelet-rich plasma has been used in the medical field to help promote the healing of the body. In recent years, the dental field has been using the same concept. It is a way to use materials from your body to promote tissue growth and help the body repair itself.
What is Platelet-Rich Plasma?
Your blood contains different components. The plasma is the liquid that allows the white and red blood cells and platelets to flow throughout the body. Platelets help blood clot and heal in a timely manner. Platelet-rich plasma can be removed from the body and injected into the problem area to assist with the healing process. Because you are using your body’s own blood, there are no foreign substances being inserted into the body, eliminating the possibility of rejection.
What is the Process for Platelet-Rich Plasma Injections?
This process is extremely simple. Before treatment begins, your blood will be drawn in our office by one of our qualified staff. Using a special machine, the platelet-rich plasma will be separated from the rest of the blood. Following the completion of the procedure, the plasma will be injected into the compromised area.
