Tooth extractions can be one of the most dreaded dental experiences many people go through, but a new treatment that is gaining popularity in many dental offices could help reduce the painful after-effects of the surgery.
Studies have shown that platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments can help speed healing after tooth extraction, making it a less painful process. The treatment helps improve bone density and reduces bleeding, inflammation and swelling after surgery.
The research team from the American Association of Maxillofacial and Oral Surgery wrote in their study that the speed with which PRP treatments allow extraction sites to heal is one of the main benefits.
"The immediate start of bone formation seen with PRP treatment is of clinical relevance because it is the initial two weeks following bone manipulation oral surgery that are important," they said.
Other studies using the treatment have shown it to speed healing in other tissues of the body.
