Advanced Healing and Bone Regeneration
Following any surgery is a period of healing. At Councill Dental Group, we strive to improve this period with the latest advances in dental technology and treatment. PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a state-of-the-art therapy that helps accelerate the rate of healing and tissue growth following a surgery. With PRP, Dr. R. Terry Councill can ensure that patients who undergo oral surgery for implant placement or extraction enjoy a faster, more comfortable healing period.
What is Platelet Rich Plasma?
Our blood contains platelets, which are designed to coagulate to stop the bleeding. To help patients heal faster following implant surgery, a sample of blood is drawn and centrifuged. This process separates the red blood cells from the platelet-rich plasma. The plasma is then injected into the surgery site, which boosts the rate of healing, helping our patients recover faster from oral surgery.
What are the Benefits of Platelet Rich Plasma?
- Improves the body’s own natural means of healing
- No allergic reactions or infections
- Body won’t reject Platelet Rich Plasma
- Improved bone density
