Utilizing the patient’s own healing potential to accelerate the surgical healing process has been explored in clinical dentistry with the advent of platelet rich plasma (PRP) in the 1990s. Recently, this field has exploded with vast amounts of new technology, techniques, protocols, and scientific evidences. More importantly, undeniable, impressive clinical outcomes are being observed in different parts of the globe by independent researchers and clinicians alike.
