Bone Grafting/PRP

Restorative Dentistry
Removing a diseased or broken tooth is no longer about simply extracting the tooth. Today, it is all about atraumatically removing the tooth with the best surgical technique. The goal is to leave the patient with minimal postoperative pain and guide the healing in the proper way to preserve the bone for future tooth replacement. That is where bone grafting (socket grafting) and PRP (platelet-rich plasma) enter the picture.

Benefits of Bone Grafting/PRP

When we think about replacing teeth, implants are our first thought. In order to place an implant, we need bone to support it. If a tooth is extracted and the ridge is left to heal on its own, it often leaves a skinny peak of bone. It is very hard to place an implant in a narrow ridge without first having to undergo more extensive procedures.

The easiest thing to do is not allow that to happen in the first place. With socket grafting enhanced with PRP, you can maintain the ridge after tooth extraction so that implants can be placed in a wide, healthy ridge.

PRP (platelet-rich plasma) contains the concentrated healing components of your own body. We obtain these special components by first drawing your own blood. Then by spinning it in a centrifuge, we are able to separate your blood into its various components, including the PRP.

We then place them in the surgical site for them to work their magic. By introducing PRP to the surgical site, we are shuttling a large concentration of your own body’s healing potential to the area. With this technique, we make good surgeries better. We see improved initial healing time and again after surgeries such as extractions, bone grafting, and implant placement. Let us put this wonderful technology to work for you.
