Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy San Diego

In 2009, several prominent dentists and oral surgeons presented platelet rich plasma therapy and its uses in dental and oral surgery applications at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. They discussed how platelet-rich plasma therapy, treatment that has been used for many years in other fields of medicine, can accelerate bone and tissue growth as well as stimulate wound healing to improve long-term success rates of dental implant placements. Dr. Nojan Talebzadeh, a board certified oral surgeon, is highly experienced with utilizing the impressive healing attributes of platelet rich plasma therapy.

How Platelet Rich Plasma Works:

Platelet rich plasma, commonly referred to as PRP treatment, has been used in many fields of medicine including sports medicine, orthopedics, podiatry, otolaryngology, and many more. Almost universally endorsed as an extremely beneficial tool in tissue recovery and regeneration, platelet rich plasma is the result of a highly concentrated form of your own blood's byproducts resulting in a high concentration of platelets.  During the body's response to wound healing, platelets are critical to the initiation of healing at the site of the injury.

In addition to improving coagulation effects which enhances blood clot formation, platelets are a rich source of important growth factors, such as platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF), that are involved in hard and soft tissue wound healing. These growth factors help the body repair itself by stimulating stem cells to regenerate new tissue. Using platelet rich plasma helps the body improve the normal healing response at an accelerated rate, thus allowing the body to heal faster and more efficiently.

Advantages of Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy:

There are many effective uses of platelet rich plasma therapy in dental and oral surgical procedures such as tooth extractions (ex. Wisdom tooth removal), periodontal surgery, dental implant surgery, and other procedures in which there may be a benefit to the patient in optimizing the healing process. The advantages of platelet rich plasma therapy are obvious:
PRP is safe: because PRP is derived from the patient's own blood, there is no risk of allergic reaction or disease transmission.
PRP is easy:PRP therapy is a minimally invasive procedure that can be performed in office, while you are undergoing a procedure. 
Quicker Recovery:The most obvious and main benefit of PRP is the tremendous benefits it provides in healing the treated area faster and more effectively.
