What is PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Pro Therapy?
Your blood consists of plasma and platelets. The plasma is the liquid part of the blood made up mostly of water and proteins which help to circulate the red and white blood cells as well as the platelets throughout the body. The platelets are blood cells that cause the blood to clot and provide healing and regenerative functions.
Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP pro therapy takes the concentrated form of the platelet in your blood and uses it to naturally help aid the healing process within your own body.
PRP pro therapy has already been used for some time within hospitals, and the advance in technology now means that it is being used within surgical areas of dentistry. At Smile Rooms Wokingham, we mostly use PRP pro therapy to help speed up healing and recovery after dental implant surgery. By using the cells from your own body, the recovery and healing process is accelerated.

The process for PRP Pro Therapy
Once we have checked that you have no blood clotting disorders, a small sample of your blood will be taken at the Smile Rooms Wokingham dental practice. This is a quick and painless process.
This blood sample will then be treated to separate the plasma from the red blood cells. The highly concentrated form of platelets will then be used to apply to your surgical wound to boost your healing and recovery rate.
Patients throughout Wokingham and surrounding areas are realising the benefits of using PRP pro therapy after dental surgery. By using your body’s own regenerative cells, the process is completely natural and safe.

The benefits of Platelet Rich Plasma Pro Therapy
PRP pro therapy uses your body’s own cells to speed up the healing process.
- Faster healing – after surgery such as dental implant surgery, the affected area is covered in the PRP collected from your body to accelerate your body’s healing and recovery process
- Safe and natural – The use of your own blood means that PRP pro therapy is completely safe and natural. It uses your own body cells so there can be no chance of a bad reaction
- Lower risk of infection – Applying the platelets from your own blood to the surgical area helps to quickly seal up the wound and prevent the risk of infection
