Aim: The aim of the study was to compare the effect of Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) and Concentrated Growth Factor (CGF) in the treatment of bilateral Miller’s class II multiple gingival recession defects.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: Fifteen patients with bilateral multiple Miller’s class II gingival recession defectswere selected for this study and were divided into two groups using split mouth design. Fifteen sites treated with CGF (Group A) and 15 sites were treated with PRF (Group B), using pouch and tunnel technique. Clinical parameters such asgingival recession depth (GRD), gingival recession width (GRW), probing pocket depth (PPD), clinical attachment level (CAL), keratinized gingiva width (KTW), gingival thickness (GT) and mean root coverage (MRC) were included in this study and the treatment effectivenesswas determined at 90th and 180th day after the surgical procedures.
RESULTS: There was a statistically significant reduction in GRD, GRW, PPD, KTW, GT, and gain in CAL from 0 to 180th day in Group A compared to Group B.There was also statistically significant mean root coverage in Group A compared to Group B.
CONCLUSION: It can be concluded that both PRF and CGF along with tunnel technique is a successful alternative for effective treatment of multiple gingival recession defects.
