Everyday new discoveries are being made to assist patients heal more efficiently and our oral surgeon in Melbourne, Florida stays up to date with the latest technologies to help his patients in every way possible. This is why Sedaros Oral Facial Surgery & Dental Implants uses Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). PRP is a by-product of blood (plasma) that is rich in platelets.
New technology permits Dr. Sedaros to harvest and produce a sufficient quantity of platelets from only 55 cc of blood drawn from the patient while they are having outpatient oral and maxillofacial surgery. PRP permits the body to take advantage of the normal healing pathways at a greatly accelerated rate. During the healing process, the body rushes many cells and cell-types to the wound in order to initiate the healing process. One of those cell types is platelets. Platelets perform many functions, including formation of a blood clot and release of growth factors (GF) into the wound.
Perfusion.com explains that, “PRP was first described for use and has documented efficacy in accelerating autogenous bone graft healing. It has been shown to improve the rate of bone formation by 1.62 to 2.18 times that of controls. It also increases the density of the bone formed by 19% – 25% when measured at four months and six months.”
