Petaluma practice offers PRP treatment
What is platelet rich plasma?
Platelet rich plasma, or PRP, is a protein that is available in the blood. To obtain PRP, patients have a blood draw performed at the dental office. This blood is then spun in a centrifuge to separate all the elements and obtain the PRP. The PRP is then applied during oral surgery procedures to facilitate faster healing.
Why use PRP?
PRP is from your own body and is used to ensure the body heals faster and in a more natural manner. Patients may have PRP treatment performed during periodontal treatment or the placement of a dental implant. PRP has been used by hundreds of doctors around the nation and is found to be highly beneficial for dental procedures.
Uses for PRP
PRP is not only used in restorative dentistry. It is your own body’s natural “fountain of youth.” It is sometimes used in dermatological procedures as it can improve texture and tone. It has also been used in many different surgical treatments to speed healing and reduce recovery time. It is a natural and holistic method.
