The use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) in implantology has potentiated bone regeneration and the healing process, reducing postoperative period, inflammatory process and blood loss. The objective of this study is to verify, based on the literature, the use of PRP in bone regeneration in autogenous grafts, to show its indications and benefits in bone formation and techniques used. A literature review was performed on the efficacy of PRP in autogenous bone grafts in implantology. The databases used were PubMed, Scielo and BVS. In this study, 30 articles from the years 1983 to 2017 were selected demonstrating the effectiveness of the technique. The use of PRP in the dental clinic presents promising results in the regeneration and healing of the tissues, however, more study is needed to verify its long-term efficacy.
