Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

extracting platelet rich plasma

Not only do our implant treatments and procedures feature innovative and advanced technology to maximize the success of your surgery, our healing services offer the same level of commitment. To help with recovery and tissue regeneration, we use platelet rich plasma (PRP), extracted from the patient. Research and medical journals have discovered that the plasma in our own blood cells stimulates the healing and regeneration process within our body. This applies to all surgical procedures, but is especially helpful in dental medicine, where the operated area is often tender and prone to infection. The platelets in your blood cells carry a specific protein that accelerates the healing process and helps the body fight off infection, while eliminating an extended recovery time or periods of post surgery discomfort.

How PRP Helps

In select cases, where we believe this platelet rich plasma will reduce your recovery time, we may recommend the application of these protein-bearing cells into the surgical area. These platelets are taken from the patient themselves, in a quick procedure that takes about 15 minutes. Patients who have a difficult history with soft and hard tissue regeneration are often recommended this course of action. Platelet rich plasma will help in these specific situations, giving a patient the best chance at a quick and effective recovery.

At Northland Dental Medicine, we offer innovative and progressive treatments that most general dental medical practitioners can’t provide. If you believe platelet rich plasma is the best recommended course of action for your surgery, we will walk you through the process and ensure you are comfortable with all aspects of the procedure. Our commitment is to our patients, and helping them find the smile they’ve always dreamed of. Dr. Corsello is skilled and knowledgeable in all dental procedures, and will leave you satisfied with your new smile. If you’re looking for a local dentist, you’ve found your man.
