Platelet-rich plasma therapy can be used to accelerate the healing process for dental implant treatments. PRP procedures use the body’s own regenerative abilities to enhance the growth of bone and soft tissue. They jumpstart the process and reduces the time between implant placement and crown fitting.
The patient’s own blood is used and centrifuged to separate the platelet growth factors from the red blood cells. The platelets help improve the rate of growth of new bone and soft tissue. There is minimal risk because the healing process of the body is completely natural. Since the patient’s own blood is used, an allergic reaction or infection is unlikely.
In dental surgery, PRP is mixed into gels and applied to treatment sites and tooth sockets. It is effective in supporting the integration of implants with bones. The grafts become bonded faster with the patient’s bone thanks to the growth factors in PRP. Implant dentistry can be a more natural and effective process with the professional use of plate-rich plasma growth factors.
