PURPOSE The extraction of mesioangular impacted third molars may cause multiple periodontal defects at the distal root of the second molar. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a material containing many autologous growth factors that may be used in repairing and preventing periodontal complications at the distal root of the second molar adjacent to the extracted third molar. PATIENTS AND METHODS We analyzed the effects of autologous PRP on periodontal tissues after extraction of the third molar in… CONTINUE READING
