Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet Rich Plasma

Platelet-Rich Plasma Specialist in Chicago, IL

Millennium Park Oral Surgery surgeons strive to be at the forefront of dental medicine, therapy, and technology. One such therapy we use as part of treatment is Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. It has been used in surgical settings for decades and is proven effective and quickly changing the standard of care for oral surgery.  


What is Platelet-Rich Plasma (RPR)? 

Platelet-rich plasma is a method of therapy that utilizes your blood that is enhanced with tiny blood clotting cells called platelets. It is a highly concentrated liquid extracted from the patient’s white and red blood cells. These cells are essential to helping your body develop clots that will help you stop bleeding and play a significant role in cell growth. As a result, the healing process speeds up and decreases post-op discomfort.  

How Patients Benefit From PRP Therapy 

Most oral surgery post-op discomfort manifests as pain, swelling, and jaw stiffness. However, an experienced surgeon, like those from Millennium Park Oral Surgery, can use PRP therapy to address your symptoms and promote a speedier recovery time.

PRP stimulates your body’s natural healing process with therapeutic platelets. Other benefits PRP therapy provides:    

  • Better healing oral tissues 
  • Reduced pain after surgery
  • Stronger bone structure after bone grafts
  • Quicker healing after extractions and dental implant placement
  • Lower chance of developing dry socket 

 A PRP injection can be administered at Millennium Park Oral and Maxillofacial in as few as thirty minutes, providing significant advantages post-treatment.

How Millennium Park Oral Surgery Uses PRP Therapy 

Platelet-rich plasma is an adaptable material because it is derived from your own blood. These injections can be used for many oral surgery procedures, such as: 

  • Tooth extractions
  • Bone grafting
  • Dental implant surgery 
  • Periodontal regeneration 
  • Soft tissue recovery 
  • Sinus lift
  • Ridge augmentation 
  • Cleft lip and palate surgeries 

Our Millennium Park Oral Surgery team will discuss your unique treatment plan and determine whether PRP therapy suits your procedure. 

Is PRP Therapy Safe? 

PRP therapy is completely safe because we use your blood to make it. Our trained doctors use an IV to extract some of your blood during your surgical procedure. It gets placed in an FDA-approved centrifuge machine and separated into platelets and red or white blood cells. The platelets are turned into a paste or serum for your treatment. This process takes approximately 15 minutes to complete. 

There is no risk of disease transmission when using PRP therapy, which has been seen to reduce infection rates.

Is PRP Therapy Right for Me? 

Although this procedure has existed for many years, few patients know about it and its associated benefits. Millennium Park Oral Surgery professionals will assess your unique case and determine if you would benefit from this outpatient therapy. We’ll answer all your questions to help you decide whether moving forward with this therapy is right for you. This innovative therapy may help you heal more efficiently after your next surgical procedure.
