Platelet Rich Plasma in Scarsdale
PRP treatment can help support wound healing in trauma and joint injury.
Medical research has demonstrated that by using our own blood cells healing and tissue regeneration in all forms of surgery can be accelerated. Specifically, platelets, plasma, and white blood cells are used for this procedure. The protein that is carried by the platelets is the magic ingredient that is being used in numerous private office settings for wound healing and various surgical procedures, including oral surgery
Because the treatments use a patient’s own tissues, PRP injections are safe and can be administered alone or used in conjunction with other procedures.

What is platelet-rich plasma?
Platelet-rich plasma consists of two elements: plasma, or the liquid portion of blood, and platelets, a type of blood cell that plays an important role in healing throughout the body. Platelets are well-known for their clotting abilities, but they also contain growth factors that can trigger cell reproduction and stimulate tissue regeneration or healing in the treated area. Platelet-rich plasma is simply blood that contains more platelets than normal.
The treatment uses a patient’s own blood cells to accelerate healing in a specific area.
Reduces inflammation, pain, and tissue fibrosis
Who is a candidate for PRP?
- Most patients who undergo a dental procedure are good candidates for PRP therapy. It has been used in a wide variety of oral and maxillofacial procedures, from simple tooth extractions to more complicated bone grafts. Because the PRP is produced from the patient’s own blood, there are few risks or side effects of PRP use, however it is possible to experience pain, irritation, or bleeding at the injection site. Most people can resume normal activities immediately after having a PRP injection. You are not a good candidate for PRP if you have a bleeding disorder such as hemophilia. Your healthcare provider can help you determine if you are a good candidate for PRP therapy.
In Scarsdale Advanced Dental we use platelet rich plasma (PRP) in oral surgeries that involve hard and soft tissues, derived from the patient. The plasma proteins are collected in the office in a short procedure. The use of PRPs in surgery ensures that the patient has the best opportunity to successfully heal from their surgery.
For patients who have a history of complications arising from hard and soft tissue regenerations, PRP is instrumental in surgical success.
