The use of plasma in dental surgeries and procedures has become more widely accepted and applauded in recent years. Advancements in the industry have led to an accelerated recovery process called Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Platelet Derived Growth Factors (PRGF). PRP and PRGF allow the body to take advantage of the normal healing pathways at an increased rate.
PRP is obtained from a small sample of the patient’s own blood. It is centrifuged to separate platelet growth factors from red blood cells. The concentration of platelets triggers rapid growth of new bone tissue. There is virtually no risk for allergic reaction or rejection because we use the patient’s own blood.
