Abstract

Implant supported restorations have become and continue to be a very popular clinical option for patients who are either partially or completely edentulous. This article, the third in a series dealing with implant dentistry, describes the role of platelet rich plasma as an adjunct to help with the healing process following tooth extraction, socket preservation, and, ultimately, replacement with implant supported restorations. A clinical case is used to illustrate surgical options available in the restoration of the posterior partially edentulous maxilla.
