PRP stands for 'Platelet Rich Plasma'. PRP is derived from a patient's own blood and can be used at surgery to accelerate healing and bone formation when combined with a bone graft, implant surgery or other bone and soft tissue augmentation procedures. In the case of dental implants this accelerated healing can allow the fitting of teeth or prostheses over the implants in a shorter period of time, and is likely to improve the overall implant success.
Platelet alpha granules contain potent growth factors necessary to begin tissue repair and regeneration at the wound site. Concentrated autologous platelets contain large reservoirs of growth factors that have the potential to greatly accelerate the normal healing process, naturally. The use of concentrated growth factors is considered by many to be a "new frontier" of clinical therapy and creates a paradigm shift affecting all segments of the medical profession.
