Platelet-Rich Fibrin: Its Role in Advanced Surgical Dentistry-A Review

Sumedha Srivastava, Veena Kalburgi, Kapil Jain, Shreya Modi, Anushri Gupta, Rachalwar Shweta Rajendra

Abstract: The healing of hard and soft tissue is mediated by a wide range of intracellular and extracellular events that are regulated by signaling proteins. Platelets can play a crucial role in periodontal regeneration as they are the reservoirs of growth factors and cytokines which are the key factors for regeneration of bone and maturation of soft tissue. PRF is a natural fibrin-based biomaterial prepared from an anticoagulant-free blood harvest without any artificial biochemical modification that allows obtaining fibrin membranes enriched with platelets and growth factors. The main aim of this review article is to briefly describe the novel platelet concentrate PRF and its potential role in advanced surgical dentistry.
