Unlocking the Power of Platelet-Rich Plasma in Oral Surgery at Portal Dental Care
What is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)?
You may have heard about Platelet-Rich Plasma, commonly referred to as PRP, in the context of regenerative medicine or even aesthetic treatments. But did you know that PRP is a revolutionary technique we employ here at Portal Dental Care to optimize the healing process in oral surgeries?
How Does PRP Work?
PRP is essentially a concentrated form of your own blood that’s rich in platelets, plasma, and white blood cells — all the ingredients necessary for accelerated healing. These elements are high in growth factors, which are essential for wound healing and tissue regeneration.
How is PRP Obtained?
Right here at our Portal Dental Care office, located at 12035 Bammel N. Houston Rd., Houston, TX, 77066, we can collect PRP in just a matter of minutes. We start by taking a small sample of your blood. The blood sample is then centrifuged to separate the plasma, which is rich in platelets, from the other components of your blood.
Why Use PRP in Oral Surgery?
PRP is especially beneficial for surgeries involving both hard and soft tissues in the oral cavity. The application of PRP during the procedure supports rapid tissue healing and reduces the risk of complications, particularly for patients who have previously experienced complications with tissue regeneration.
