Our In-Office Surgical Procedures

Your body has incredible healing properties, with blood being a powerful agent. When you cut yourself, a scab will form almost immediately since your blood starts to work right away to heal you. In short, that’s what platelet-rich plasma (PRP) does. At Nevada Oral & Facial Surgery, we help you heal faster after oral surgical procedures such as dental implants or tooth extractions.

What is Platelet-Rich Plasma?

Platelet-rich plasma is a medical treatment that harnesses the healing power of your own blood. It begins with a small blood sample taken from you. It is then run through a specialized centrifugation process to separate your blood to isolate a concentrated plasma rich in platelets and growth factors. This is then applied to the target area to stimulate tissue regeneration and accelerate healing.

How Does Platelet-Rich Plasma Work?

Once we’ve taken a blood sample and separated the plasma, we will complete your surgery. Once your surgery is finished, we will apply the platelet-rich plasma to the area that was just operated on. It will be filled with healing properties that will help you heal faster. There are no risks involved with platelet-rich plasma, but plenty of benefits exist. With platelet-rich plasma, the regeneration process will speed up. The regeneration will take place in both your bones and gums, which helps heal the wound as well.

What Are the Benefits?

When it comes to oral surgeries, such as dental implants, a lot of time is needed. It can take months for the entire process and even longer if a bone graft is needed before we can work on the implant. That is why platelet-rich plasma is so exciting! It can cut your healing time so that we can move ahead faster. Platelet-rich plasma has been used on thousands of patients with a high success rate. It is important because it helps you heal faster, which will also reduce the possibility of infection.
