Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is used for surgical procedures at West Wales Dental Clinic. PRP is at the cutting edge of modern tissue regenerative techniques and has been shown to have extraordinary results.
Growth factors are proteins naturally occurring in the blood and can be used to repair and regenerate oral tissue. PRP speeds up the body’s healing process, reduces inﬂammation and helps to prevent infection. PRP has been proven to improve treatment outcomes.
Both Erica Day and Christine Smith are qualified phlebotomists to level 3 and this ensures that all treatment can be done in surgery.
