The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of PRF application on short implant both clinically and radiologically.
Methodology: A total of fifteen short implants coated with PRF were placed in periodontally healthy patients who were above 18 years of age. All the patients were informed about the purpose of study and consent was taken. They were followed up for a period of 6 months.
Results: Results showed gain in crestal bone levels along with no adverse complications.
Conclusion: It was concluded that the use of PRF along with short implants is an important adjunct in implantology as it accelerates the soft and hard tissue healing around the implant without performing any extensive surgery in deficient bone height and contributes to the overall success of implants.
