Aside from comfort level during surgery, the most frequently asked question our patients have is whether their recovery will be long and painful. Rest assured, we do all we can to help both your surgery and recovery be as painless, comfortable, and quick as possible. Especially if you’re receiving surgery as part of comprehensive dental implant care where healing can sometimes greatly lengthen total treatment time.
Along with leveraging advanced technology and minimally invasive techniques during the procedure, we accelerate your healing by using platelet rich plasma and platelet rich fibrin. Derived from your own blood, these by-products are rich in growth factors naturally found in your body. We use these by-products primarily with our bone grafting services to accelerate healing and tissue growth at the treatment site. Our Amesbury, MA oral surgeons recommend these advanced techniques to ensure a more comfortable recovery and faster return to optimal oral health.
Why Patients Choose Advanced Healing
Faster, healthier recovery
Minimal pain and swelling
Less chance for infection
Our Advanced Healing Techniques
Platelet Rich Plasma
Platelet rich plasma is derived by taking a sample of your blood and spinning it in a centrifuge until the layers separate. The by-product is rich in growth factors and platelets. We mix this substance with bone grafting particles before placing it at the treatment site. Combining the growth factors with the bone help accelerate the healing process so that dental implants can be placed sooner than with traditional grafting techniques.
Platelet Rich Fibrin
Platelet rich fibrin aids in blood clotting and is a membrane-like material that separates from a sample of your blood when it is spun in a centrifuge. We use the fibrin membrane to keep bone grafting particles contained at the treatment site. Rich in growth factors, platelet rich fibrin helps to accelerate natural healing after bone grafting treatment and is often used for more complex surgeries.
