How Does Platelet-Rich Plasma Help You Recover After Dental Implants?

A New Approach To Tissue Renewal

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a revolutionary new way to promote healing after dental procedures such as the placement of dental implants. The procedure uses a patient’s own blood platelets to promote tissue and bone regrowth after bone grafting, offering a safer healing process with less bleeding. This is a great option for those looking to recover quickly and safely. Dr William Lane and his amazing team at Lane Oral Surgery offer this groundbreaking technique and other innovative technology at their office in Sandwich, MA.


What is Plasma-Rich Plasma?

PRP is a by-product of blood (plasma) that is rich in platelets. Platelets are cells that help the body heal when any wound occurs. By using your own body’s healing process, the PRP process offers many different benefits compared to surgical grafting. These include:

  • Safety – Your own blood is used to promote healing, removing any risks for disease transmission.
  • Convenience – The PRP process in done in-office, with no need to visit an outpatient facility.
  • Faster healing and recovery – PRP uses the body’s own healing process at the wound site to accelerate healing and recovery times for tissue regrowth.
  • Cost-effective – Since the procedure is not done from another office, there is no need visit an additional office, or add any other expenses.

Dr William Lane and his talented team at Lane Oral Surgery in Sandwich, MA offer a number different ways in which PRP can be used. These methods include: onlay and inlay grafts, sinus lift procedures, ridge augmentations, closure of cleft and/or lip, palate defects, and repair of bone defects created by removal of teeth or small cysts. PRP can also repair fistulas between the sinus cavity and mouth. Be confident in your choice to get a new smile with dental implants and receive excellent care with faster recovery times with the PRP procedure.
