We’ve looked at a number of unique treatments to aid in the prevention of periodontal disease, such as scaling and root planing and Ozone Therapy. But to help heal the weakened and diseased tissues, our team could recommend Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). In today’s blog, your San Diego/Encinitas, CA, periodontist talks about PRP Therapy!
When to Seek Treatment
We can use these treatments to help correct the damage brought on by periodontal disease. The disease occurs when inflammation is not treated or managed successfully, and without care in turn to manage the disease, this could lead to tissue connecting the teeth and gums being destroyed. You’re more likely to develop missing teeth, and the strength of your jaw can weaken as well. When you notice changes to your smile, such as gums that appear redder than normal, bleeding easily, or are very sore, then you should let us know right away. This could mean serious gingivitis or the early stages of periodontal disease, and care is crucial for avoiding the onset of tooth loss and other major complications.
Platelet Rich Plasmas is a part of your blood that contains a high concentration of platelets, which your body can use to facilitate healing for injuries. Which is why doctors and medical practices of all kinds often use PRP therapy to produce growth and repair in the muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments, and other tissues that have sustained injury. Our team can use the same cells to help promote recovery from the damage periodontal disease causes, the damages that could otherwise lead to adult tooth loss and painful symptoms. This means a holistic approach to restoring tissues and improving the strength of your smile.
In addition to PRP therapy, we could also offer improvement and healing with the Plate Rich Fibrin (PRF). This option creates a fibrin structure that collects growth cells and concrete healing on a specific area of your smile. Along with correcting the damage to the gums, this can aid in repairing and restoring jaw bone structure as well, reducing the healing period following the placement of dental implants.
If you have any questions about using these options to help restore your smile esthetics, so you avoid tooth loss and other major complications, then contact our team today to get started. Let’s make 2023 the year we can enjoy our best possible smile!
