Autologous platelet rich fibrin
Aim: The aim of the study was to determine whether the addition of autologous platelet rich fibrin(PRF) membrane to a coronally advanced flap(CAF) would improve the outcome of the root coverage procedure. Material and methods: systematically 10 healthy patients with miller’s class I and class II gingival recession defect were selected and divided into control (CAF) and test site (CAF&PRF). Clinical outcome was analysed on the basis of Plaque
index(PI), Gingival Index (GI), Pocket Depth (PD), Clinical attachment loss(CAL), Width of keratinized gingiva(KT),Percentage root coverage (RC).Result: The root coverage was 61.66±33.379% at the end of 6 month in control site, and 63.33±20.48% at the end of 6 month post treatment .Conclusion:- CAF is a predictable treatment for the isolated millers class I and class II recession defect.
