Below are photos of a bone grafting procedure that Dr. Starkey performed.
Guided Bone Regeneration
With today's modern technology in our practice we can concentrate the patients platelets into what is called PRP or platelet rich plasma; with fibrin & Ca+ as accelerators all mixed in bone graft material we are able to rebuild missing jaw bone more predictability.
In addition the healing is faster, the results closer to optimum (there is no such thing as perfection), less discomfort, and faster healing.
For soft tissue like gums we are able to centrifuge out a small concentration of stem cells and these cells help the gum tissue reform faster.
Reasons for platelet rich plasma treatment
Platelet rich plasma application is now widely used to expedite the post-procedure healing process and is completely safe. Since the blood used will come from the patient’s own body, disease transmission is not a factor. Almost all patients report a much greater degree of comfort immediately after their procedure. There are also several more distinct advantages of PRP:
Lower Infection Risk – PRP is smeared thickly on the wound after the procedure by the dentist and actually seals the wound away from infectious agents, lowering the risk of problems.
Accelerated Healing – The saturation of the wound with PRP helps increase tissue synthesis due to its growth factors, and this in turn results in faster tissue regeneration. Speedier healing decreases the risk of later infections, complications, and discomfort.
Safety and Convenience – Disease transmission is non-issue since the blood is harvested from the patient’s own blood supply. The amount of blood needed is small and can be collected during a routine outpatient
