Platelet concentrates (PCs) such as platelet-rich plasma and platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) are commonly used in various surgical procedures in medical as well as dental fields, oral and maxillofacial surgery, plastic surgery and sports medicine. The main motive is to elicit all the components of a blood sample that can be used to promote healing and regeneration. PCs came a long way since their existence in 1954 from titanium-PRF, advanced-PRF and injectable-PRF being introduced newly. These concentrates have been successfully applied in periodontal regenerative procedures and implantology. However, the preparation techniques, methodology, standing time, transfer process, temperature of centrifuge, vibration and other factors tend to produce mixed results. This review is designed to sort out all the confusions by introducing the exact origination of PCs, preparation techniques along with recent trends and clinical applications in periodontology.
