Promoting Dental Health After Tooth Extraction

added on: March 25, 2013 | By: Dr. Nancy Tobin

Once a tooth is extracted, the dentist likes to see good healing that leads
to bone formation. Otherwise, poor healing may lead to excessive bone loss
that compromises the patient’s ability to accept a dental prosthetic or
implant. Consequently, there is reason to cheer a recent study that shows that
platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy accelerates post extraction healing and
bone formation. PRP therapy magnifies the body’s first response to softtissue
injury, which is to deliver platelet cells. These blood components are
packed with growth and healing factors that initiate repair and stimulate
stem cells. By injecting large concentrations of the patient’s own platelets
into the extraction site, it is possible to jump start the body’s natural healing
response.
