Gingival recession results due to the apical migration of gingival margin. Correction of such gingival recession is necessary to enhance aesthetic as well as functional demand. Variety of periodontal plastic surgical procedures including coronally advanced flap (CAF) are described, each having advantages and disadvantages. To improve the clinical outcome of such surgical procedures, several regenerative materials have been combined with it. Though platelet rich fibrin (PRF) is one of the best regenerative material, it is not frequently used along with the periodontal plastic surgical procedures. In the present case report, PRF is combined with CAF for the treatment of multiple gingival recessions. The addition of PRF to CAF procedure provided complete root coverage. This case report helped to focus treatment outcomes and predictability of autologous PRF when used along with CAF for the treatment of recession defects on multiple adjacent teeth.
