Need a bone graft to support your dental implants or improve your jawbone functionality? Dr. Sam Harouni can simply guarantee a faster recovery process by using groundbreaking regenerative medicine treatments. At Beverly Hills oral and maxillofacial surgery office, Dr. Harouni is well-versed in the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and stem cells to stimulate your body to heal from within. Call us or use the online booking feature to find out if PRP or stem cell treatments are correct for you.
A dental bone graft is a surgical technique in which bone from other parts of your body is transplanted into your jaw. If you want dental implants but lack a healthy jawbone for support, a dental bone graft may be necessary for such situations.
Dr. Harouni may also choose bone graft surgery as part of corrective jaw surgery or to fix a jaw fracture.
The procedure is performed under intravenous (IV) sedation to keep you relaxed and stress-free. This type of sedation may also make it very hard for you to recall any aspects of the surgery.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments are generally injections that have a high amount of blood platelets. These platelets have growth factors that assist in the healing process after an injury or trauma.
Dr. Harouni takes a blood sample from you to extract the plasma. After that, he separates the platelets from the other components of the blood. The platelet concentrate and growth factors are then used to regrow bone in your jaw.
Platelets continue developing and promote the restoration of healthy bone growth over time, thus increasing the speed of your recovery after a bone grafting procedure.
Stem cells have the unique ability to grow into other types of cells, including bone, tendons, muscle, and tissues. After a bone graft, stem cells can help regenerate new, healthy bone formation.
Stem cell therapy functions similarly to PRP injections, but Dr. Harouni may choose to use bone marrow stem cells instead of blood stem cells. Following the injection, stem cells grow into new, healthy bone and tissue, reducing the amount of time it takes for your jaw to heal after your grafting procedure.
In general, stem cell and PRP therapy are safe and reliable for anyone who is recovering from surgery. After a thorough examination of your oral and physical health, Dr. Harouni will determine whether this type of therapy is suitable for you.
Since the injectable materials are derived from your own blood or bone marrow, there is a lower risk of rejection or other medical complications following the procedure.
