Aim and Objective: The prospective study was conducted to assess the role of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) in healing of soft tissue after the surgical extraction of mandibular-impacted third molars. The main objective of the study was to compare clinical parameters and especially the postoperative pain, swelling, interincisal distance, wound dehiscence, dry socket, soft tissue healing, and infection. Materials and Methods: 300 patients having impacted mandibular third molar were included in this study. They were selected on the OPD basis at the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. Patients were divided into Group A treated with PRP and Group B treated with PRF. Result and Conclusion: The study indicates faster healing with no untoward reaction on PRP and PRF group. Platelet concentrates especially PRF in extracted third molar socket give excellent enhancement in wound healing with lesser postoperative complication.
