Written by the researcher who discovered PRP, this authoritative handbook presents clear and easy-to-follow guidelines for routinely incorporating PRP into a broad spectrum of dental and craniofacial procedures in order to obtain its documented benefits of enhanced healing and improved outcomes.

The authors explain PRP’s biologic mechanism of action, the in-office procedure for developing PRP, and most importantly, its application and expected benefits in procedures such as implant placement, periodontal bone and soft tissue surgery, sinus lifts, jaw reconstructions, soft tissue facial augmentations, and facial cosmetic surgeries.
