Dr. Adamous and Dr. Sonnichsen, in combination with the team here at Bellflower Oral Facial Surgery & Dental Implant Center, practice innovative methods in dentistry to help pave the way for incredible results. One of the newest approaches is called Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), and is a new method to help tissue regeneration. It has numerous practical clinical applications in dentistry, especially for older patients who might struggle to heal as well as they did in their youth.
PRP can be used in a variety of dental and periodontal surgical procedures, and has been effective in aiding bone grafting procedures to help secure customized dental implants. This includes onlays and inlays, sinus lifts, ridge augmentation, and the treatment of cleft lip and palate defects. PRP can further assist in wound healing and the reparation of bone defects during tooth extraction.
How it Works
PRP allows the body to heal at an advanced and accelerated rate, especially since the platelets perform numerous function like the formation of blood clots. They release growth factors directly to the region that needs healing and promotes cell stimulation, which then results in new tissue generation. The more growth factors that are released into a wound, the more the stem cells become stimulation to create new tissue.
Platelet Rich Plasma Benefits
PRP is a byproduct of your own blood, meaning it can be generated at your convenience in a doctor’s office while undergoing a routine outpatient surgical procedure (like a dental implant or tooth extraction). Supersaturation of a wound or surgical site with PRP increases tissue synthesis and promotes quick tissue regeneration, meaning you take less time to heal. This treatment is cost effective and is easily handled while also promoting the use of bone substitute materials.
