Accelerated Healing with PRP in Implant Dentistry – Dallas
To accelerate healing in surgical procedures, we use PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma). This technique involves using the patient’s own blood components. The risk of rejection is reduced, which improves the outcome potential of an oral surgery procedure.
At Lynn Dental Care, we can draw your blood prior to surgery, spin it in a centrifuge, and extract the platelets. The platelets are in gel form, and in the platelets’ granules, there is a growth factor. The platelet-derived growth factor is the part of your blood that improves your ability to heal. When PHP is used in surgery, blood clots form and promote regeneration of hard and soft tissue. Studies show that healing can occur two or three times faster when PRP is applied to the surgical site.
We can use PRP in soft tissue (gum surgery), bone grafting, and dental implant surgery. It is a natural and conservative technique that has been proven effective in medicine and dentistry.
