Context: With time, the treatment protocol changes and currently there is a new school of treatment called accelerated orthodontics wherein the goal is to shorten the time needed to align the teeth.

Platelets are one of the initiators both in the soft and hard tissue wound healing processes. They contain growth factors such as the platelet derived growth factor, transforming growth factor, Endothelial growth factor, and others. Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is a natural biomaterial with favourable results in orthodontics and other specialities with minimal risk.

The following article attempts to summarise the relevant literature regarding benefits of PRF over PRP, focusing on its preparation, advantages and disadvantages of using it in clinical scenarios in medicine and dentistry, due it’s minimally invasive technique and low risks.

Abstract


Context: With time, the treatment protocol changes and currently there is a new school of treatment called accelerated orthodontics wherein the goal is to shorten the time needed to align the teeth.

Platelets are one of the initiators both in the soft and hard tissue wound healing processes. They contain growth factors such as the platelet derived growth factor, transforming growth factor, Endothelial growth factor, and others. Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is a natural biomaterial with favourable results in orthodontics and other specialities with minimal risk.

The following article attempts to summarise the relevant literature regarding benefits of PRF over PRP, focusing on its preparation, advantages and disadvantages of using it in clinical scenarios in medicine and dentistry, due it’s minimally invasive technique and low risks.
