Aims and objectives: To evaluate the effect of Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) on rebound of soft tissue in immediate placement of implants and revaluate at 3 months, 6months and 9months. Objectives of the study are to clinically evaluate the thickness of soft tissue, to evaluate the implant mobility and to evaluate peri implant radiolucency.
Methodology: 11 patients from the Department of Periodontics at the Government Dental College and Hospital in Hyderabad participated in the current clinical study in order to receive implants right away. The MYRIAD IMPLANT SYSTEM was the implant system utilised for this study. The application of PRF around the immediate implant led to the division of the subjects into Group I and Group II. The study was conducted for 9 months after receiving approval from the institutional ethical committee. Every patient had their case history filled out in-depth on a unique proforma. Patient was called back three, six, and nine months after the implant was placed for clinical and radiographic evaluation. Later descriptive statistical analysis had been done.
Results: Group I (PRF): The WKS at baseline was 4.03 ± 0.16 and increased to 4.05 ± 0.18 after three months, 4.08 ± 0.13 after six months, and 4.17 ± 0.10 after nine months. The WKS in Group II (without PRF) was 4.02 ± 0.16 at baseline, 4.00 ± 0.11 at three months, 4.07 ± 0.12 at six months, and 4.08 ± 0.10 at nine months. In this study, all 12 implants that were placed right away demonstrated good stability, no implant mobility, and no peri-apical radiolucency during the nine-month postoperative follow-up period.
Conclusion: The width of the keratinized soft tissue increased when compared to the control group. In the group without PRF, the width of keratinized soft tissue did not increase. When compared to Group II, Group I (PRF) showed a statistically significant increase in the width of keratinized soft tissue (without PRF). The study's findings show that Group I (PRF) soft tissue has thicker tissue than Group II, a difference that is statistically significant (without PRF).
