Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a by-product of blood that is rich in platelets. Thanks to PRP in Newport Beach, California, we can help accelerate the body’s healing process. These amazing blood platelets are used in several functions of the body, including the release of healing growth factors and blood clot formation. The growth factors stimulate stem cells in the body, encouraging them to quickly create new host tissue. It is for this reason that PRP is so effective in accelerating the post-treatment healing process.

Dr. Douglas Hauck may use PRP as part of the following treatments:

  • Cleft lip and cleft palate procedures
  • Bone grafting for implants
  • Sinus lifts
  • Ridge augmentation
  • Inlay and onlay grafts
  • Bone repair
  • Tooth removal
  • Growth and cyst removal
  • Fistula repair

Benefits of Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment

Platelet rich plasma application is a completely safe procedure that many dentists use to expedite the healing process. The blood used in the application is from your own body, which means that there is no possibility of disease transmission. In addition, PRP application tends to enhance comfort following the procedure. Other advantages include:

  • Less risk of infection
  • Accelerated healing process
  • Safety
  • Convenience

What Does Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment Involve?

Dr. Douglas Hauck will first determine if you are a candidate for PRP treatment; those who have blood-clotting disorders may not qualify for PRP treatment. After collecting a small sample of your blood, the plasma containing the growth factor will be separated and concentrated. Our dentist will then suture the area in question and apply a high concentration of PRP. This helps to accelerate the healing process and improve your comfort level following the procedure. Any additional instructions will be given to you by Dr. Douglas Hauck at this time.
