Surgical management of a periapical lesion with platelet-rich fibrin - A case report

Aishwarya Ranganath , Iffat Nasim


Due to some periradicular diseases or after the necrosis of the pulp tissue, the bone around the apex of the tooth produces particular reponse leading to periapical inflammatory lesion. Reproducing of a lost or an injured part of the body in order to restore the architecture and function of the tissues is called regeneration. The aim of this case report is to emphasize the advantage of platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) in the treatment of a periapical lesion. A periapical endodontic surgery was performed on a 20-year-old male patient with mobility and lesion in the lower front teeth region which was detected radiographically. Root resection and retrograde filling of the tooth were done with mineral trioxide aggregate. The surgical defect was filled with PRF and sutured. Radiologically, there is adequate healing seen at the end of 6 months after the use of PRF. The use of PRF would have induced the rapid rate of bone formation.
