Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can be harvested from the patients' own blood and applied directly to the surgical site to naturally accelerate the healing process.
Many patients are curious about their recovery time after an oral or facial surgery procedure. For most patients, recovery time depends on the type of procedure, how well the patient followed pre- or post-operative instructions, and their own body’s natural ability to heal. Thanks to modern technology, we can enhance how your body heals following a surgical procedure.
We use platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, at our office. PRP stimulates healing by applying a high concentration of growth-stimulating materials to the surgical site. PRP is created using the patient’s own blood and delivers 3 to 5 times the amount of growth factors to the desired area.
PRP is especially useful in procedures such as bone and gum tissue grafting. On average, patients using PRP after a procedure experience reduced post-surgical swelling and discomfort. If you are interested in adding PRP to your treatment plan or have any questions about this innovative treatment, please let us know at your consultation appointment.
