Some dental treatments and procedures may take months to complete. It isn’t because the actual procedure or treatment takes that long; it’s because your teeth, gums and bone need to completely heal before you can move forward with your treatment.
What if there was a way you could speed up the healing process?
Noles Family Dental, located in Greensburg, Indiana, can speed up your body’s natural healing process by incorporating PRP therapy into your treatment plan. Learn how you could benefit from this revolutionary dental treatment.
What Is PRP Therapy?
PRP therapy, which stands for platelet-rich plasma, is a relatively new treatment used by dentists, Drs. Noles, Estes, and Sullivan during oral surgery and other procedures. It reduces your risk of experiencing infection and other problems after a dental procedure. It also accelerates the healing process, reducing the amount of time you have to wait in between appointments.
With PRP therapy, your dentist will inject the treatment area with concentrated plasma. Once the plasma is injected, it will travel to areas that have suffered trauma from a surgical or dental procedure. The plasma helps bone and tissue regenerate quickly by stimulating your body’s natural healing process.
What Are the Benefits of PRP Therapy?
Some of the benefits you may receive from PRP therapy include:
- Faster healing times for oral surgery and other dental procedures such as dental implants and extractions
- Reduced risk for infection after treatment
- Lower risk for developing dry sockets after a dental extraction
- Bone tends to heal stronger and better after the procedure
- Experience less swelling and pain after procedures
Everyone’s experience with PRP treatment will vary. When creating your treatment plan, our dentists can provide you with a better understanding of how you could benefit from PRP treatment.
PRP Treatment Is a Simple Procedure
There is very little you need to do to prepare for PRP therapy. In fact, the entire procedure is completed in just a few minutes.
To begin, your dentist will use a small needle to take blood from your arm. The blood is then placed into a centrifuge. The centrifuge quickly spins the blood, which concentrates, or separates, the plasma from other cells.
The concentrated plasma is then injected back into the tissue near the treatment area. This completes the PRP treatment.
