The goal of the clinical management of extraction sockets could be structured in three main aspects: postoperative healing, soft tissue healing and bone regeneration. The outcomes are improved quality of life for the postoperative patient and minimized dry socket occurrence. Thus, an optimal alveolar regeneration is characterized by rapid haemostasis, adequate inflammation, mesenchymal cell recruitment and differentiation, rapid re-epithelialization of the socket, and correct tissue regeneration. The use of plasma rich in growth factors have been reported to enhance socket regeneration, post-operative recovery and minimize secondary complications.
