Does the adjunctive use of platelet-rich plasma to bone graft during sinus augmentation reduce implant failure and complication?

Rasha Imam Bayoumy Abdalla, Ahmed Yaseen Alqutaibi, Amal Kaddah

Background: Prosthetic treatment of the posterior edentulous maxilla may require bone augmentation to enable the placement and integration of dental implants. This constitutes a complex healing situation, and resorption of the grafted bone and failure of the implants often occurs. The application of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has been suggested to improve incorporation and preservation of bone grafts.
