About Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet-rich plasma can provide quicker healing after bone grafting and other procedures. It is a by-product of blood that is rich in healing factors that contribute to your body’s natural healing process. Your oral surgeon can extract a small vial of blood, spin it in a centrifuge to extract the plasma, and administer it directly to your surgical site.

The plasma comes from your own blood, so there is virtually no risk of contamination or disease transmission. PRP can be generated in our offices while you are undergoing a surgical procedure. By administering PRP directly to your surgical site, growth factors that are present in your blood expedite the healing process.
