At Oral Surgery of Tidewater, we are dedicated to providing you with a comfortable experience. Regenerative medicine is a breakthrough style of care that enables you to heal faster and more comfortably after treatment. We are pleased to provide Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy to provide you with the best possible experience at our office.
For patients who receive bone or tissue grafts, Drs. Ford, Guter, and Gray may recommend PRP to help speed up your healing process. The plasma is derived from your own blood and tissue and provides a safe, cost-effective way to help you recover more quickly.
PRP is a concentration of platelets. It contains a concentration of fundamental protein growth factors that are proved to be actively secreted by platelets to initiate all wound healing. To obtain PRP, we take a small amount of blood before the treatment begins. Using a centrifuge, we isolate the PRP. Our skilled surgeons will then apply the PRP to help you benefit from your own natural healing process. Using PRP accelerates the regeneration of tissue and the healing process.
Platelet-rich plasma treatment is safe, non-invasive, and non-chemical. Regenerative medicine and dentistry may be especially useful for treatments like dental implants that typically require a longer healing period and may involve bone and tissue regeneration.
