Platelet Rich Plasma Training Dates Announced For Los Angeles

Platelet rich plasma, or PRP as it is shortened to, is not something that many medical professionals are aware of, and they know even less about how it could be used to benefit the patient themselves. In order to combat this lack of knowledge, a one day training course has been put together to offer platelet rich plasma training Los Angeles based, so that dentists specifically can learn to use this medical technique to help their patients, something that has not been done before. Although many are sceptical not only about the platelet rich plasma process itself, but also the idea that anything so rich and complex could be taught in a day, this training experience that has been created by Dr Howard Katz is something that he has already offered in other cities to great appreciation and success. So exactly what is platelet rich plasma, and why should dentists care about it?

To start with, it is vital to know exactly what platelet rich plasma is, and then to explore what it is used for. Really it does exactly what it says on the tin: it is blood plasma that has been enriched with extra platelets to intensify the concentration. Within this mixture you will find a higher concentration of growth factors and chemicals known as cytokines, which are known for stimulating the growth of soft tissues, and platelet rich plasma also contains higher amounts of autologous platelets, or platelets chosen for a particular patient. This is important because platelet rich plasma is created specifically from one patient in order to inject back into the same patient, but the injection site is chosen carefully in order to stimulate the healing and growth of an area that needs it. Many areas of medicine use platelet rich plasma therapy, especially dermatology in order to help the skin to rejuvenate, and this is often chosen as an alternative to a more extreme treatment such as Botox.

The question is, why do so many dentists not know about platelet rich plasma therapy and use it more often in their dental practices? After all, they are working closely with facial skin as they work to keep their patients’ mouths and jaws healthy, so it is not too large a leap to suggest that they could also start to treat the skin around the mouth. Some dentists may argue that they see absolutely no need to get involved in what is essentially a dermatological cosmetic procedure, but that would be to underestimate the power of platelet rich plasma therapy. In fact, as recently as this year in 2016 a study revealed that when platelet rich plasma was used as a treatment for nerve injuries, to support bone grafts, and even to prevent hair loss, it was incredibly effective. Is it any wonder then that some worry that platelet rich plasma therapy is become a lost science amongst dentists?

By taking up this training course, on the other hand, any dentist can retrain to learn about platelet rich plasma and its medical applications in order to not only expand their dental practice, but also to help many of the patients that come to them that they would previously have been unable to help before. This not only makes business sense but it makes medical sense: now those patients who you would have had to turn away because you do not have any treatments for trapped nerves, muscle pain, or agony after having a bone graft for a dental procedure you could now treat. This training program certainly offers an intriguing level of new knowledge, and we think that many will take advantage of learning about platelet rich plasma.
