Enhances Bone And Tissue Growth With Platelet-rich Plasma

Platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) that has been gaining acceptance in orthopedics and sports medicine, now is also showing strong potential for accelerated healing of dental implant procedures. This therapy can accelerate bone and tissue growth and wound healing and help assure long-term success of dental implant placements.

James Rutkowski, DMD, PhD, reported at the recent annual scientific meeting of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry that PRP treatments could jump start bone growth and implant adherence in just two weeks, which cut down the time between implant placement and affixing the permanent crown.

Platelet-rich plasma is obtained from a small sample of the patient's own blood that was centrifuged to separate platelet growth factors from red blood cells. The concentration of platelets could trigger rapid growth of new bone and soft tissue.

"There is very little risk because we are accelerating the natural process in which the body heals itself," said Rutkowski. "PRP speeds up the healing process at the cellular level, and there is virtually no risk for allergic reaction or rejection because we use the patient's own blood."

In dental surgery, PRP is mixed as a gel that can be applied directly in tooth sockets and other sites. Growth factors in PRP preparations help the grafts bond faster with the patient's own bone. In one of his study, there was increased radiographic bone density during the initial two weeks following PRP treatment when compared to sites that did not receive PRP treatment, Rutkowski reported.
