What is it about?

The present meta-analysis aims to systematically evaluate whether the three generations of APCs could provide additional efect to CAF for gingival recessions, thus to provide guidance to practitioners in their clinical work.

Why is it important?

The current clinical evidence is still unclear for practitioners. Considering these controversial options. Thus, it is our aim to supplement and update the understanding of the role of APCs. Our meta-analysis results showed that PRF could exert additional efect to CAF; the preferred treatment for gingival recessions was considered. Based on the limited studies, it seemed that PRP failed to show any additional efect and it was not suggested for gingival recessions. Given the limited research and high risk of bias, it is still needed to confrm the additional efect of CGF by more high-quality studies.


I hope this article will provide some valuable reference for oral clinicians, which will be the greatest value of my writing.
