All patients that undergo dental surgery need time to recover. This process depends on the type of treatments they receive and if they follow their dentist's post-surgery care instructions.
Even though the final results will be great, the recovery time can be a little overwhelming and during this, patients sometimes wonder if there’s anything else they can do to speed this process.
Well, we’re very glad to let you know that nowadays there are two different alternative procedures that can help any patient to recover in a faster way.
PRP and Its Use in Dentistry
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma, which is a concentrate of platelet-rich plasma protein derived from whole blood, centrifuged to remove red blood cells.
The difference from whole blood is that PRP has a greater concentration of growth factors, and lately it has been used to encourage a brisk healing response across several specialties, particularly in dentistry.
It has been proven that the increased concentration of growth factors in PRP can potentially speed up the healing process of treatments like dental implants surgery, wisdom tooth extractions, periodontal disease treatment, bone grafts, and more. Plus, PRP therapy is completely safe and has many advantages, such as:
- Lower infection Risk: PRP is smeared thickly on the wound after the procedure by the dentist and actually seals the wound away from infectious agents, lowering the risk of problems.
- Accelerated Healing: PRP helps increase tissue synthesis due to its growth factors, and this results in faster tissue regeneration.
- Safety and Convenience: Disease transmission is a non-issue since the blood is harvested from the patient’s own blood supply, and the amount of blood needed is minimum and can be collected during a routine outpatient procedure.
Ozone Therapy and Its Use in Dentistry
Ozone therapy is an alternative treatment that aims to increase the amount of oxygen in the body through the introduction of ozone. This type of therapy has been used worldwide for over fifty years with a big success rate and following all the safety standards.
The ozone molecule is the most powerful agent that we can use on microorganisms. It is deadly to bacteria, viruses, and fungi.
So, how can ozone aid dentistry? The goal of any dentist is to preserve the integrity of natural teeth as much as possible, and ozone plays a critical role in conservative dental care.
Ozone works in the same manner as the human body. When infection occurs, white blood cells enter bacteria and create an oxidative burst. This reaction to white blood cells causes a puncture in the cell wall of the targeted microbe, and the cell dies off.
