Efficacy of Blood and Its Products-boon for Oral Surgeons: Review

A set of scientific researches has focused its attention on discussing the possibility that platelet derivatives are not only coherent for haemostasis, but also have gained popularity in the field of tissue healing. Products obtained from whole blood as a result of centrifugation have wide applications in this field. Various materials are commercially available that are used locally to achieve haemostasis; however platelets and fibrinogen are the natural blood components that exists as a source in coagulation process. Platelets carry platelet-derived growth factors which, when introduced into an injured region, may stimulate a healing response through the recruitment of stem cells, increased vascularization and the production of collagen enhancing both soft and hard tissue healing. Injection of collected venous blood could be a scaffold for new bone formation which is helpful in restricting mouth opening in TMJ subluxation. Injections are inexpensive, simple to acquire, accord minimal trauma with minimal risk for allergic reactions. The purpose of this paper is to provide collective information regarding the various centrifuged products obtained from blood and their application in different ways.
