Surgical & Non-Surgical Treatments
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
Chronic dental and jaw pain can be debilitating, interfering with your ability to eat, talk, and even make it through the day without extreme discomfort. Many patients make the decision to live with that discomfort in order to avoid neck and jaw surgery that can be painful and followed by a lengthy period of recovery.
Greyledge Technologies supports oral surgeons in offering the most cutting-edge cell therapy available to those who are seeking relief from temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome and other sources of oral pain, and to those who are looking to support their recovery from oral or maxillofacial surgery. Made using technology at the forefront of Regenerative Medicine, our preparations allow surgeons to provide treatment that is tailored to each patient’s individual needs.
Greyledge will enable your oral surgeon or dental provider to offer you custom support. Ready to take your life back from pain? Talk to your doctor about Greyledge today, or find a Greyledge-affiliated oral surgeon near you.
Platelet-Rich Plasma for Faster Healing
State-of-the-Art PRP Dental Procedures
One of the cutting-edge biologic preparations we offer for use by oral surgeons is known as platelet-rich plasma, or PRP. Here’s how the process works:
- Your oral surgeon or dentist will draw whole blood from your own body.
- This blood sample will be separated into 3 layers -- red blood cells, platelet-poor plasma, and a “Buffy Coat” made up of platelets and white blood cells.
- We’ll ratio these elements to prepare a customized PRP product that provides the optimal TMJ treatment for you.
- Greyledge will deliver your PRP product to your physician to be reinjected into your jaw, either during surgery or as a standalone treatment.
PRP stimulates your body’s natural ability to heal bone and tissues, making it extremely useful in the treatment of TMJ and as a tool for accelerating healing after oral or jaw surgery.
