Abstract

Autologous platelet concentrates have become a rage in the field of regenerative medicine including numerous specialties like orthopedics, maxillofacial and cosmetic surgery, sports medicine and dentistry. The use of these platelet concentrates ranging from fibrin glues to the currently used platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) has exponentially increased and it has brought about a radical change in the stimulation and acceleration of regenerative tissue processes. The current review highlights the evolution of different platelet concentrates and the use of platelet rich fibrin in periodontal treatment and tissue repair.
