Devising new approaches to hasten the regenerative process, thereby, waning the duration of wound healing persists to be one of prime goals of clinical research. Platelets play a crucial role in these regenerative procedures, as they act as reservoirs of cytokines and growth factors. A significant component of the orthodontic tooth movement encompasses a similar process as it essentially involves bone remodeling comprising of alternate cycles of bone resorption and deposition. The past decades have witnessed various attempts to accelerate the rate of orthodontic movement by versatile techniques leading to a decrease in the treatment time, a highly desired outcome by the patient as well as the orthodontist. The following review attempts to summarize existing literature concerning the application of platelet derived concentrates in dentistry and their potential role in orthodontics. The most commonly used platelet derived concentrates i.e Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), Plasma rich in growth factors (PRGF) and the Platelet rich Fibrin (PRF) have been described and compared to aid in future opportunities of clinical research.
