Gingival recession is increasingly becoming a prominent condition in oral health and is one of the most common aesthetic concerns associated with the periodontal tissues. Numerous root coverage procedures such as coronally advanced flap (CAF), lateral pedical graft (LPG), subepithelial connective tissue procedure can be done either alone or in combination with other regenerative material to treat these recession defects. PRF is a fibrin matrix in which platelet cytokines, growth factors, and cells are trapped and may be released after a certain time and that can serve as a resorbable membrane. This paper reports the use of a platelet rich fibrin membrane in combination with coronally advanced flap for root coverage.
