Our offices in Charleston, Hurricane (Teays Valley), Huntington, Parkersburg, and Beckley, WV, and Ashland, KY, offer patients the chance to receive platelet-rich plasma (PRP) during treatment. Platelet-rich plasma can provide quicker healing after bone grafting and other procedures.
Up until recently, platelet-rich plasma was difficult and costly to make, which made it tough to utilize during treatment. Now, our oral surgeons can create the blood plasma using just a small sample of the patient’s blood. PRP has a high concentration of platelets and growth factors, which when combined, stimulate rapid healing – and because it’s originated from your blood, the risk of disease transmission is virtually nonexistent.
The doctors at Mountain State Oral & Facial Surgery care about your safety and comfort, and we provide the best possible care to ensure a smooth treatment and recovery process. You can learn more about platelet-rich plasma by scheduling a consultation at one of our offices.
Benefits of PRP
Platelet-rich plasma offers patients several benefits, including
- A decrease in healing times after bone grafting procedures
- Little to no risk of disease transmission
- Convenience — it only takes 20 minutes for your oral surgeon to create PRP from your blood sample
- Comfort — your doctor creates PRP in the form of gel, which makes it easy to apply during surgery and provides subsequent comfort during healing
