Platelet Rich PlasmaCoon Rapids, MN
What is Platelet Rich Plasma?
Platelet Rich Plasma allows your body to use its normal healing pathways to help you heal at an increased rate. While this procedure used to require a large amount of blood to be drawn, advances in technology now allow a useable number of platelets to be collected from a relatively small blood draw.
How Does Platelet Rich Plasma Help?
When your body is healing from an injury or surgery, many cells are sent to the healing site to expedite healing. One of the types of cells sent to aid in healing is platelets. These platelets help your body to form a blood clot and release growth factors that stimulate the regeneration of new tissue. By utilizing Platelet Rich Plasma, Dr. El Deeb can obtain the platelets your body needs to speed up the healing process after oral surgery.
