Plasmolifting is an injection method for the administration of platelet-rich plasma obtained from the patient’s blood Common causes of people seeking dental care are gum disease, bleeding, bad breath, tooth mobility. Periodontal disease undoubtedly worsens the quality of life of any person. Plasmolifting is an injection method for the administration of platelet-rich plasma obtained from the patient’s blood. Platelets are the smallest particles of blood that stimulate the growth of cells (epithelial cells, osteoblasts, collagen …). In addition, plasma contains protein, nutrients, hormones, electrolytes.
Due to this, the destruction of bone tissue is stopped, inflammatory processes in periodontal tissues are removed, the shape, color and structure of the gums are restored, and the formation and strengthening of bone tissue is stimulated. Plasma lifting is a fairly well-known method that is widely used in such fields of medicine as dermatology, cosmetology, gynecology, urology, neurology, orthopedics and traumatology, trichology and, of course, dentistry.
Indications may have the occurrence of diseases such as:
- Gingivitis – inflammation of the gums
- Generalized periodontitis (1,2,3 degrees) – gum lesion with violation of the integrity of the gingival connection, covering most of the teeth
- Inflammation of the hole after tooth extraction – alveolitis
- Localized periodontitis, in which the gum is affected in the area of one or two teeth
- Periimplantitis – inflammation of the tissues around the implant
- Cracked lips
In addition to the above, plasmolifting is well suited for the prevention of periodontal diseases.
Plasma lifting is contraindicated in people with infectious diseases, with diabetes mellitus, blood diseases, with malignant and benign neoplasms, with HIV infection, with hepatitis and an allergic reaction to heparin.
How is the plasma lifting procedure carried out.
Preparation for the procedure.
For 2 days, it is necessary to exclude spicy and fatty foods and alcohol. Take a glass of water a few hours before the procedure. About 10 ml of blood is taken from a patient from a vein, then a test tube with the material is placed in a special centrifuge. The result is a plasma concentrate that contains protein, hormones, vitamins, and platelets. Immediately before the procedure, the oral mucosa is smeared with an anesthetic gel, and then the prepared plasma is introduced into the transitional fold, the papilla and the marginal gum in the area of each tooth. After the procedure, 2 days it is recommended not to take sun baths, SPA procedures and not to visit the bath. Alcohol consumption for 2 days should also be excluded.
The result of plasmolifting.
After a course of plasmolifting, patients note the elimination of pain, bleeding and swelling of the gums, tooth mobility becomes less, the hole heals faster after tooth extraction, implant survival improves, bad breath disappears, and bone tissue loss stops. There is also an improvement in local immunity. The first changes will be noticeable on the 7-10th day, and the final result can be judged after 1 month. Plasmolifting is an absolutely safe method, since its use uses the patient’s own blood plasma, and due to the prolongation effect, the result obtained is stored for a long time, which cannot but please our patients.
