This chapter is focused on the use of platelet-rich fibrin to embed bioactive graft ceramics. This chapter describes the preparation of PRF and the clinical evidences of soft and bone healing. At last, the combination of PRF with nanoparticle graft materials is reported as a novel alternative to enhance bone formation.
