At Southern Surgical Arts, we want your treatment and recovery to be as smooth as possible, and we make sure to provide every patient with a safe and efficient treatment process. Our oral surgeons utilize the latest techniques and tools to reduce healing times and improve recovery. Platelet-rich plasma, also known as PRP, is a unique treatment offered in our office to provide rapid healing and optimal results following bone grafting and other procedures. We can create and apply PRP from the convenience of our offices in Tyler, TX, and Palestine, TX.
Platelet-rich plasma is blood plasma with a high concentration of platelets and growth factors to stimulate healing. In the past, PRP was expensive and difficult to make, but today it can be created from a small sample of the patient’s blood. Using PRP derived from your own blood allows your body to heal itself more efficiently with virtually no risk of disease transmission.
Benefits of PRP
Platelet-rich plasma provides patients with a variety of advantages, including the following:
- Drastically reduced healing times for bone grafting and bone augmentation procedures
- An almost zero risk of disease transmission
- Simple to make — all that is necessary to make PRP is a small blood sample, which will be centrifuged for less than 20 minutes to create your PRP
- Easy to apply during surgery — the PRP takes the form of a gel, which is easy to use during your bone grafting procedures
