Platelet-rich plasma in dental procedures is applied for soothing effects after tooth extractions, healing and supporting the effects of dental surgeries
Platelet-rich plasma according to case studies proves as it may be beneficial in some cases as an adjunct to graft materials for the treatment of periodontal intrabony defects.
The use of PRP has been proposed in the management of bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (BRONJ) with the aim of enhancing wound healing and bone maturation.
Platelet-Rich Plasma combats developing diseases like periodontitis, which is an inflammation of the tissue around the teeth, often causing shrinkage of the gums and loosening of the teeth.
The areas of PRP treatments and recommendations:
dental surgery (tooth extractions and periodontal surgery)
oral surgery (soft tissues and bone tissue surgery
enhancing wound healing
reinforcing bone maturation
oral and dental diseases and conditions (eg.Periodontitis)
The Platelet-Rich Plasma in dental procedures may be is mainly to:
enhance soft tissue healing
accelerate bone regeneration
periodontal intrabony defects
accelerate tissue healing
combating diseases within oral areas
acceptance of the implant.
