Platelet Rich Plasma
Dr. Adamous or Dr. Sonnichsen and the team practice innovative methods in dentistry like Platelet Rich Plasma treatments, which can help pave the way for incredible results. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a relatively new approach to tissue regeneration that has many practical clinical applications in the field of dentistry, especially in patients more advanced in age. PRP can be used in dental and periodontal surgical procedures and has been proven to be effective in aiding bone grafting procedures which help secure dental implants. This can include onlays and inlays, sinus lifts, ridge augmentation, and the treatment of cleft lip and palate defects. PRP can also assist in wound healing in addition to the reparation of bone defects which can come about from tooth extraction.
How it Works
PRP allows the body to experience the healing process at a greatly advanced and accelerated rate. Platelets perform many functions, one of which is the formation of blood clots. They release growth factors directly into a wound or area that needs healing. PRP assists the body in repairing itself by promoting cell stimulation, which results in new tissue generation. The more growth factors that are released into the wound, the more stem cells become stimulated in order to produce new tissue.
Platelet Rich Plasma Benefits
PRP is a by-product of your own blood and can be generated with convenience in a doctor’s office while the patient is undergoing a routine outpatient surgical procedure (for instance, during a dental implant procedure or tooth extraction). Supersaturation of a wound with PRP, which contains important growth factors, will increase tissue synthesis and promote quick tissue regeneration. This treatment is cost effective, and PRP is easily handled and helps promote application of bone substitute materials.
