  Platelet rich fibrin (PRF) is an autologous biomaterial with growth factors and cytokines entrapped in a fibrin matrix. In recent times it has been used in various disciplines in dentistry in a wide range of treatment modalities. An electronic literature research using the biomedical search engine ‘‘National Library of Medicine’’ (PubMed-MEDLINE) was performed. This narrative review aims to summarize the relevant literature regarding the technique of using PRF, its preparation, advantages, and disadvantages of using it in clinical situations. PRF alone or in combination with other biomaterials seems to have several advantages and indications both for medicine and dentistry, as it is a minimally invasive technique with reduced risks and satisfactory clinical results.
