Faster Healing–Get Back To The Important Things In Life
PRP therapy uses your body’s natural healing power to stimulate tissue regeneration, dramatically accelerating the healing process. Dr. K Ashraf employs PRP therapy to enhance healing and reduce your overall recovery time for a number of dental procedures, including dental implants. Effective PRP therapy is part of Dr. K Ashraf’s commitment to providing complete care for our patients in Waterloo and surrounding areas.
Why Choose Platelet-Rich Plasma?
Maximize your healing power
PRP contains proteins called growth factors that speed up healing at the surgical site for a variety of dental procedures.
One hundred percent natural
The Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) that Dr. K Ashraf uses to enhance the healing process comes from your own body. (That’s what the word autologous means.)
3 Reasons Our
Process Stands Out
1. We use a specially calibrated centrifuge to get a high concentration of healing-rich platelets.
2. The PRP process is designed to be fast, effective, and very affordable.
3. Dr. K Ashraf studied PRP therapy with Dr. Arun Garg, a well-regarded author, educator, and pioneer in the PRP field.
Dr. K Ashraf provides PRP treatment that’s designed to meet your specific needs. This process delivers the following benefits to our patients:
- Faster healing times
- More effective treatments
- Unique solutions to meet your needs

Frequently Asked Questions
How is platelet-rich plasma prepared?
The platelet-rich plasma is prepared by our experienced Waterloo dentist, Dr. Khurrum Ashraf, first by drawing a small amount of blood from a part of your body. We’ll take the blood sample and put it in a centrifuge device that isolates the PRP from your blood.
After we’ve completed the dental procedure you’ve come to us for, we’ll inject the PRP into the site so it can improve your overall healing process. Dr. K. Ashraf proudly serves patients in Waterloo and surrounding areas.
Are platelet-rich plasma injections covered by insurance?
Most insurance providers, unfortunately, won’t cover the cost of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. This is because PRP isn’t always necessary for your dental procedures. Instead, it’s an added benefit to enhance healing and reduce your recovery time.
However, if you’re interested in receiving PRP therapy but worried about the costs, contact our Waterloo dental office by calling (226) 213-5716 to discuss possible payment options with you.
