PRP for Dental and Oral Surgery

What is
Platelet-rich plasma in Dental and Oral Surgery?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a promising therapy in dental and oral surgery. It is a concentrated form of platelets obtained from a patient’s own blood, which contains growth factors and cytokines that promote tissue regeneration and wound healing. PRP has been used in various dental and oral procedures, including periodontal surgery, implant placement, bone grafting, and root canal treatment. The use of PRP in these procedures has shown to improve healing, reduce pain and swelling, and increase the success rates of implants and bone grafts. PRP is a safe and minimally invasive procedure that utilizes the patient’s own blood, reducing the risk of adverse reactions. With its many benefits, PRP is becoming an increasingly popular choice in dental and oral surgery.
