PRP - Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy at Wicker Park Dental Studio utilizes the healing and regenerative properties of your own blood platelets to enhance recovery and outcomes of various dental procedures in Chicago.

What Is PRP Therapy and How Does It Benefit Dental Procedures?

PRP therapy involves using a concentration of platelets from your own blood, rich in growth factors, to promote healing. It's beneficial in dental procedures as it speeds up recovery, reduces the risk of infection, and improves healing outcomes.

What Dental Procedures Can Benefit from PRP Therapy?

PRP therapy is particularly useful in:

  • Bone grafting for dental implants.
  • Periodontal surgery and gum grafting.
  • Healing after tooth extractions, especially wisdom teeth removal.
  • Enhancing regeneration in tissue repair procedures.

How Is PRP Obtained and Used in Dentistry?

PRP is obtained by drawing a small amount of your blood, then processing it in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets. This concentrated PRP is then applied directly to the surgical site.

What Are the Advantages of Using PRP in Dental Treatments?

Advantages include:

  • Accelerated healing process.
  • Reduced risk of complications and infections.
  • Minimized swelling and discomfort post-procedure.
  • Utilization of the body's natural regenerative capabilities.
