Aims & objectives: to evaluate the efficacy of platelet rich fibrin in soft tissue healing, bone regeneration & to assess its effect on post-operative pain & swelling after periapical surgeries.
Materials and Methods: This prospective study was carried out in oral & maxillofacial surgery department. The study sample consists of 40 patients diagnosed with periapical pathologies of maxillary
teeth only. Periapical curettage / enucleation & Apicoectomy was done in all patients & patients were divided into two groups. PRF placement was done in surgical cavity in Group A with 20 patients (Study group). In Group B with 20 patients, (control Group) surgical cavities were kept empty without PRF.Wound was sutured with 3.0 black silk. Pain, Swelling, soft tissue & bone healing was noted on 3rd & 7th day, 1, 3 6, 9 months post operatively
Results: Group a showed fast clinical & radiographic bone healing. Pain was less & consumption of analgesics was less as compared to Group B, however there was no difference in swelling & soft tissue healing in both group. Bone healing was complete in 6months in Group A .
Conclusion : Use of PRF promoted good results in terms of clinical & radiographic healing.
Keywords: Periapical lesions platelet rich fibrin bone formation Radiographic healing curettage
