Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has been a breakthrough in the stimulation and acceleration of bone and soft tissue healing. It represents a relatively new biotechnology that is part of the growing interest in tissue engineering and cellular therapy today. Bioactive glass (BG) is a kind of bioactive ceramic consisting of SiO2, CaO, Na2O and P2O5 and results in the formation of a hydroxyapatite layer that has a stiffness closely matching the mineral phase of bone without forming fibrous tissue or promoting inflammation or toxicity. The purpose of this paper is to 1. To evaluate the role of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) in intrabony defects 2.) To evaluate the role of combination of Platelet Rich Plasma along with Bioactive glass in intrabony defects.
Keywords: Platelet rich plasma, Bioactive glass, Intrabony defect.
