Using platelet-rich plasma to accelerate soft tissue maturation in esthetic periodontal surgery.


The transposition of connective tissue to increase the zone of keratinized tissue and/or for root coverage has become an integral part of the surgical dental practice. In an effort to reduce the incidence of postoperative complications occasionally observed with these procedures, the incorporation of platelet-rich plasma and its growth factors has been introduced into the surgical protocol. Documentation of several cases requiring esthetic soft tissue grafting procedures and the use of regenerative barriers to obtain root coverage with the incorporation of platelet-rich plasma is presented.
