Platelet-rich Fibrin – A Wonder Material for Periodontal Regeneration – A Clinical Case Series
Keywords:Autologous, Guided tissue regeneration, Intrabony defects, Platelet-rich fibrin, Regeneration
The discovery of platelet-rich fibrin has enhanced the possibility of treating periodontal defects with significantly positive results in terms of bone defect fill, probing pocket depth, and clinical attachment level, apart from aiding in healing of wounds in other surgical procedures. This case series describes the use of platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) as a membrane along with allografts, in the treatment of intrabony periodontal defects, and the success of this treatment in eliminating factors such as deep periodontal pockets. The use of PRF in periodontal surgical procedures has been amply supported by various authors in the literature. Hence, it can be concluded from this case series that PRF can be used as an autologous alternative to the artificial materials for specifically treat intrabony periodontal defects with equal or better clinical outcomes.
