Speed Healing with Platelet-Rich Plasma

The power of platelet rich plasma (PRP) has recently been used with great success in a variety of medical purposes, including some related to oral surgery. Prior to the recent revolution in PRP use, these therapies were largely confined to hospitals due to the expense of obtaining PRP and the large quantity of blood required to produce a sufficient amount. Thanks to new technologies and techniques, however, PRP therapies are more accessible. Patients today can obtain all the benefits of PRP with platelets drawn from just 55 cc of blood during an outpatient procedure. Our team at Midwest Oral Maxillofacial & Implant Surgery is pleased to offer these advanced and highly effective therapies to our valued patients.

What Does PRP Do?

PRP is a byproduct of blood, meaning it is safe, natural, and an extension of your own body's resources and natural healing agents. Your body uses cells and cell types such as platelets to restore wounds; applying PRP serves to seriously accelerate the body's natural healing process. This can be useful in bone grafting for implants, repairing bone defects in the mouth caused by missing teeth, and more.

Benefits of PRP

Some of the many benefits of using PRP therapies in conjunction with oral maxillofacial and implant surgery procedures include:

  • PRP is safe - Using PRP is safe since the substance is natural and derived from the patient's own blood, eliminating the risk of rejection, transmitting diseases, causing complications, and so forth.
  • PRP is easy to use - PRP is very straightforward to use and can improve the application process for bone substitute materials in bone grafts.
  • PRP results in faster recovery - Using PRP assists in faster recovery, meaning you will heal quicker and be able to get back to your normal routine in less time. PRP expedites regeneration of tissue and facilitates tissue synthesis.
  • PRP is affordable - Now that PRP can be harvested from just 55 cc of the patient's blood on an outpatient basis, it is much more reasonable and cost effective for everyone to utilize this advanced treatment option.
  • PRP is convenient - Due to the ease of harvesting PRP, it can be collected during an outpatient procedure such as dental implant placement.

Great care! If I ever have to do this again Iā€™d return. The doctor was calm and kind, explained everything to me before hand and answered all my questions. The support staff was just as sweet. The office was clean and has COVID precautions in place. Clarice V.
