Mesotherapy using Vitamin C and platelet-rich plasma as an antiinflammatory agent in persistent gingival inflammation’
Mesotherapy is a minimally invasive technique that involves the injection of small amounts of drugs or other agents directly into the skin or subcutaneous tissue to treat a variety of conditions. In recent years, mesotherapy using vitamin C and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has gained attention as an anti-inflammatory agent in persistent gingival inflammation.
Gingival inflammation, also known as gingivitis, is a common condition characterized by red, swollen, and bleeding gums. If left untreated, gingivitis can progress to periodontitis, a more severe form of gum disease that can lead to tooth loss. While traditional treatments for gingivitis include oral hygiene and antibiotics, mesotherapy using vitamin C and PRP is emerging as a promising alternative therapy.
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is an essential nutrient that plays a crucial role in wound healing and tissue repair. It is also a potent antioxidant that helps protect the body against oxidative stress and inflammation. PRP is a concentrated form of platelets derived from the patient’s own blood that contains a variety of growth factors and cytokines that promote tissue repair and regeneration.
In a study published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology, researchers investigated the efficacy of mesotherapy using vitamin C and PRP in treating persistent gingival inflammation. The study included 25 patients with moderate to severe gingival inflammation who were treated with either mesotherapy using vitamin C and PRP or a saline solution as a control.
The results showed that mesotherapy using vitamin C and PRP significantly reduced gingival inflammation compared to the control group. The treatment also improved other clinical parameters, including bleeding on probing, pocket depth, and clinical attachment level. No adverse effects were reported in the study, indicating that mesotherapy using vitamin C and PRP is a safe and effective treatment for persistent gingival inflammation.
In conclusion, mesotherapy using vitamin C and PRP is a promising alternative therapy for persistent gingival inflammation. It works by promoting tissue repair and regeneration, reducing oxidative stress and inflammation, and improving clinical parameters. Further research is needed to fully understand the mechanisms of action and long-term effects of this therapy, but the initial results are promising.
