ZARATE-GIMENEZ, Rodrigo  e  JACQUETT-TOLEDO, Ninfa Lucia. Biomaterials used in oral surgery. Mem. Inst. Investig. Cienc. Salud [online]. 2022, vol.20, n.2, pp.111-119. ISSN 1812-9528.

Biomaterials are all those materials accepted by the organism and can be obtained autologously or synthetically, which would depend on the type of use provided by the professional dentist. The use of these materials has increased as patients are favored in the process of repairing tissues. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is the content of platelets in the form of a supernatant after centrifugation of anti-coagulated blood; it constitutes the main source of mitogenic activity in blood plasma and acts as a carrier of growth factors and important proteins in bone biology. Growth factors are a set of substances of a peptide nature whose function is intercellular communication at the molecular level. They regulate cell migration, proliferation, differentiation, metabolism and apoptosis, stimulate an increase of cell size by increasing the protein synthesis of the cells on which they act. This work aims to review the biomaterials used in oral surgery in updated literature on websites such as Mendeley, Cicco, Science Direct, wiley, springer open, Scielo, BVS, Google Academico, PubMed.

Palavras-chave : biocompatible materials; leukocyte- and platelet-rich fibrin L-PRF; oral surgery.
