The human body is a powerful machine with amazing self-healing capabilities. Dr. Fathimani uses cutting-edge regenerative techniques to catalyze your body’s innate healing processes after dental implant surgery or bone grafting, helping you heal faster and more predictably.
Catalyze The Natural Healing Process
When you’re injured or wounded, your body kickstarts numerous cellular regeneration and healing properties. Your blood contains growth factors and other components that come to the rescue. They stimulate cellular regeneration, clot formation, and other processes that help you heal. In recent years, thanks to advances in modern science, we have learned to harness these properties to stimulate natural healing, helping you recover faster and more predictably after bone grafting and dental implant procedures.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) for Bone Grafting
The human blood consists of plasma, red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a component of your blood with a high concentration of platelets, the components responsible for most of the healing actions in your body. We draw a small sample of your blood before bone grafting, spin it in a centrifuge to isolate the white blood cells and platelets and place the serum at the bone grafting site. The PRP serum contains a high concentration of growth factors, which kickstarts the bone regeneration process.
Optimize Healing After Dental Implant Surgery
PRP and PRF can also be used after dental implant surgery to speed up recovery. Once an implant is placed, your body initiates osseointegration, whereby your jawbone tissues fuse with the implant surface. Optimal osseointegration is critical to the long-term success of your implants because it determines how firmly they are supported. After dental implant surgery, we can also place PRP/PRF at the implant site to catalyze osseointegration and shorten the post-surgery recovery period.
