Platelets play a crucial role in homeostasis and wound healing. Wound healing is a complex, multi-staged process that deals with multiple cell types such as platelets, leukocytes, and also growth factors. Growth factors present in platelets guide the regenerating cells to the area of healing. In the recent past, numerous techniques have been developed to utilize autologous platelet concentrates for the repair and regeneration of soft and hard tissues after periodontal surgical procedures. This review focuses on the evolution of platelet concentrates, and compares the widely used second-generation platelet concentrate, i.e., leukocyte platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) with a newer third-generation platelet concentrate, i.e., titanium-prepared PRF.
