Oral Surgery Specialists of Pueblo is excited to offer platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy to aid in recovery after surgical procedures and to boost one's overall oral health. This is an innovative procedure that is performed in conjunction with other oral surgery treatments to achieve optimal results. PRP therapy utilizes a patient's own blood to promote regeneration of the gums and bone tissue. This is especially ideal when corrective jaw surgery or bone grafts are performed. It can also help reduce the risk of infection and speed up the healing process following surgery. During your initial consultation at our office in Pueblo, CO, ask our team about PRP therapy and how it can benefit your oral health.
"I had all 4 wisdom teeth removed here, and I went in scared but the staff made me feel comfortable and everything went incredibly smooth. Dr. Ringer and the staff were very helpful anytime I had questions. During recovery I did cause myself to bleed from grinding my teeth and I was able to get in contact with Dr. Ringer first thing in the morning and get it checked out ASAP. I appreciate everyone at this location immensely."- J.B. / Google / Oct 15, 2020
"The whole experience from registration to surgery was amazing and professional. Dr. Ringer and his team were friendly, new exactly what they were doing, explained everything thoroughly, and answered all question. They got me back and prepared within minutes and Dr. Ringer was in the room within minutes after that. The whole time getting registered and seeing Dr. Ringer was within 15 minutes. Dr. Ringer took his time this evening to text me to see how I was recovering after surgery and to let me know he was there if I needed anything. I would strongly recommend patients give them a try, you will not regret it."- L.A. / Google / Oct 07, 2020
"Went in to have my wisdoms removed, and it went my like a breeze. Fantastic care and service from the medical staff. took the request for me to keep my teeth well and respectfully. The anisthisia worked like a charm and made the time go by fast for me. If i had another set of wisdom teeth come in, 10/10 would do again."- N.B. / Facebook / Sep 11, 2020

"This was our second visit to have kiddos wisdom teeth removed. Dr Ringer made our daughter feel right at home and very comfortable. He explained what he was doing very clearly and she knew exactly what to expect. The nurses were amazing and very friendly. They allowed me to stay in the room right up until she would not remember me leaving the room. Despite Covid 19 their office was open and moving very smoothly. I highly recommend giving these guys and gals a call with any questions. I did not need a referral but every situation is different. They will get you what you need to get taken care of. Thank you Oral Surgery Specialists for helping my family."- T.C. / Google / Sep 03, 2020
Almost anyone is a candidate for PRP therapy as it utilizes a patient's own blood to enhance their oral health. The concentrated form of platelet-rich plasma contains proteins and growth factors that are important for the healing of injuries. PRP therapy has been used in the medical field for years and is a safe and effective treatment for the stimulation of tissue regeneration and blood clotting. Incorporating this treatment can help reduce bleeding, the risk of infection, and discomfort. If you are interested in combining PRP therapy with your oral surgery or treatment, talk to our team during your consultation to learn more. This is a simple procedure that can provide so many benefits.
What to expect
PRP therapy is a minimally-invasive procedure that can be safely performed on-site at our state-of-the-art facility. You will be seated comfortably in one of our private treatment rooms as a very small amount of blood is drawn from your arm. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge machine for about 15 minutes to separate the different components of your blood. Once this is complete, the platelet-rich plasma will be extracted and placed in a sterile needle for injection. Your PRP is typically injected in the area around or near your surgical site to help boost optimal healing.
Since PRP uses a patient's own blood, there is no risk of allergic or adverse reaction as this is a natural form of therapy that has been used for many years to aid in healing and blood clotting. PRP is administered during oral surgery and other treatments so when you visit us again for your follow-up, we will evaluate your healing progress at this time. Maintaining optimal oral hygiene such as brushing and adhering to all post-operative instructions will also help in your recovery.
To help make your treatment easy to afford, we accept medical financing through CareCredit® and offer convenient payment plans. Our patient coordinator will also contact your provider to determine your coverage and any out-of-pocket costs. Since this is an adjunctive procedure, it might not be covered by your insurance but we can discuss all of your options during your consultation. We will work with you in any way we can as we know PRP therapy is beneficial for many patients.
Platelet-rich plasma therapy helps boost the body's natural healing process for the regeneration of bone tissue and gum health. It can also be safely combined with tooth extraction, implant surgery, jaw surgery, and bone grafting. When you visit Oral Surgery Specialists of Pueblo in Pueblo, CO, ask our team about PRP therapy and how it can be incorporated into your treatment plan for optimal healing and restoration.
