Platelet
Dr. David Edlund and the team at Hampden Dental Care understand that the body is its own best physician. When given the opportunity, the human body can do wonders to heal itself. Because of that, we incorporate the use of platelet-rich plasma in Lakewood, Colorado, to improve your dental health and speed your recovery. Platelet-rich plasma aids in the recovery process by healing your body from within and uses the body’s own natural response to lessen your healing time. To learn more about the benefits of this treatment, call 303-586-4034.

At our office, we are dedicated to providing you with a comfortable experience. Regenerative medicine is a breakthrough type of treatment that allows you to heal faster and more comfortably after treatment. We are pleased to provide platelet-rich plasma therapy to provide you with the best possible experience at our office.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP), also called plasma rich in growth factors (PRGF) or platelet concentrate (PC), is a particular type of protein found in your blood. To speed up your healing process and ensure that your experience is as pleasant as possible, we take a small amount of blood before the treatment begins. Using a centrifuge, we isolate the PRP protein. This protein is used by our bodies as part of the natural healing process to regenerate tissues and repair wounds. PRP proteins are applied to the treatment area to help you benefit from your own natural healing process. Using PRP proteins accelerates the regeneration of tissue and the healing process. Platelet-rich plasma treatment is safe, non-invasive, and non-chemical. Regenerative medicine and dentistry may be especially useful for treatments like dental implants that typically require a longer healing period and may involve bone and tissue regeneration. For more information on platelet-rich plasma treatment and regenerative medicine, we welcome you to call or visit us today to schedule your consultation with our dentist. We look forward to caring for you!
