T-PRF (Titanium prepared Platelet Rich Fibrin) is a third generation platelet concentrate developed to overcome the hazardous effect of silica in the glass vacutainers used for the preparation of (PRF) Platelet Rich Fibrin and it has also showed more polymerized fibrin formation with a longer resorption rate in the tissues. The purpose of this case report is to present clinical and radiographic outcomes of two intrabony periodontal defects treated with T-PRF. After surgical treatment with autologous T-PRF, six months follow up revealed a significant reduction in Probing Depth (PD) and Relative Attachment Level (RAL) gain as well as radiographic defect depth reduction and bone density increase, supporting the role of various growth factors present in the T-PRF in accelerating the soft and hard tissue healing. From the presented case, it can be concluded that T-PRF is clinically and radiographically efficacious in the treatment of a periodontal intrabony defect. Thus, suggesting its role as a sole regenerative material in the treatment of intrabony defects.
Conclusion: From the presented cases, it can be concluded that T-PRF is efficacious clinically and radiographically in the treatment of a periodontal intrabony defects. It is an autologous preparation and found to be clinically effective and economical than any other available regenerative materials including PRP. However, long term, multicenter randomized, controlled clinical trials will be required to know its clinical and radiographic effect over bone regeneration.
