Platelet Rich Plasma with growth Factors to enhance Hard and Soft Tissue Healing (SmartPRep APC)
One of the most recent developments in periodontics is the use of platelet rich plasma (PRP) to enhance soft and hard tissue healing and maturation after surgical procedures. The delivery of growth factors from PRP directly into the grafted region significantly enhances the replacement and restoration for the grafted tissue.
What is PRP?
PRP is an otherwise normal blood clot that contains a highly concentrated number of platelets. Because it is from the patient's own blood, it is free of transmissible disease and cannot cause hypersensitivity reaction.
Advantages to using PRP:
- Rapid healing
- Growth factors released to enhances wound healing and increase bone density
- Safe - autologous (self) source
- Decreases swelling
- Earlier stability of grafts
