Platelet Rich Plasma
Platelets are essential for your body to heal, and platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a product of blood that has an especially heavy concentration of these tiny cells. In general medical practices, PRP therapy is commonly used to promote healthy growth and repair of tendons, ligaments, muscles, joints, and other injured tissues. In periodontics, it can also be used to facilitate the growth and repair of damaged gum tissues, allowing for more effective treatment and recovery from periodontal disease. Because it uses the body’s natural growth factors to promote healthier gums, PRP therapy is one of the more holistic periodontal treatments we offer.
Platelet Rich Fibrin
To improve the function of PRP therapy, Dr. Kania may also suggest platelet rich fibrin therapy (PRF). The therapy creates a fibrin matrix that collects growth factors and focuses them on healing specific areas of tissue. In addition to restoring damaged periodontal tissues, PRF can also be highly beneficial in repairing your jawbone structure following dental implant placement.
