OBJECTIVE The primary objective of this study was to compare clinically and radiographically the efficacy of autologous platelet rich fibrin (PRF) and autogenous bone graft (ABG) obtained using bone scrapper in the treatment of intrabony periodontal defects. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-eight intrabony defects (IBDs) were treated with either open flap(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy of coronally advanced flap (CAF) procedure under microsurgical approach for the management of Miller's Class I and II gingival recession defects with the use of either platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) or amnion membrane (AM) in comparison to CAF alone. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 45 sites with Miller's Class I or II(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate and compare the efficacy of platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) with enamel matrix derivative (EMD; Emdogain) in the treatment of periodontal intrabony defects in patients with chronic periodontitis, six months after surgery. METHODS Forty-four (44) intrabony defects in 30 patients (15 males) were randomly allocated into two treatment groups:(More)
PURPOSE The present study was conducted to evaluate the impact of scaling and root planing (SRP) on the C-reactive protein (CRP) levels of gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) and serum in chronic periodontitis patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM-CP) or without type 2 diabetes mellitus (NDM-CP). METHODS Forty-eight human participants were divided into(More)
OBJECTIVES This study was primarily designed to determine the clinico-radiographic efficacy of platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) and beta-tri-calcium phosphate with collagen (β-TCP-Cl) in preserving extraction sockets. MATERIALS AND METHODS For Group I (PRF), residual sockets (n = 15) were filled with autologous PRF obtained from patients' blood; and for Group(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of the study was to evaluate clinically and radiographically the efficacy of platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) versus β-tri-calcium phosphate (β-TCP) in the treatment of Grade II mandibular furcation defects. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-five Grade II furcation defect in mandibular molars which were assigned to open flap debridement (OFD)(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study is to compare the putty form of bioactive glass (NovaBone Dental Putty) and particulate form (PerioGlas) in the resolution of Class II furcation defects. BACKGROUND Use of bone regeneration materials is becoming common in periodontal surgeries including furcation defects and the promising role of bioactive allograft(More)
