Healing After Dental Surgery

We use a scientifically proven method to enhance your body’s own healing. This decreases your chances of having complications after your dental surgery. It is especially helpful to those who otherwise might have impaired healing such as diabetics, smokers, and others with chronic or acute conditions which can interfere with healing. Our method is safe and inexpensive. In fact, this technique is offered to you at no additional charge because we believe in it so much.

How it works

We draw a small amount of blood into test tubes and then spin them in a centrifuge. This allows us to use the important healing components of your own blood in a higher concentration and place them back into the surgical site. Healing occurs faster than usual and so there is less chance of infection, dry socket, failed implants or failed grafting.

Is this procedure new to dentistry?

The procedure is widely used in medicine for such things as heart surgery, orthopedics, plastic surgery, dermatology……just to name a few.  The dental industry is just beginning to realize the amazing benefits.

A more scientific explanation

PRP (platelet rich plasma) is a liquid form, and PRF (platelet rich fibrin) is a gelled membrane form of the products that we make from a small quantity of blood that we take from the patient just before their dental procedure. This blood is drawn in test tubes and then spun in a centrifuge which separates the blood into it’s individual components: 1. plasma, 2. red blood cells and 3. a small but very concentrated quantity of white blood cells and platelets called the buffy coat. It’s this buffy coat layer that contains the healing and growth factors that we use to enhance healing.

These products, processed from your own blood are then immediately placed into the surgical site. The scientifically proven positive effects of this procedure include better and faster soft tissue (gums) and hard tissue (bone) healing and regeneration.
