Clinical evaluation of the use of Acentric double pedicle graft with and without use of Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) on root coverage outcomes in class I and II miller’s root recessions- a randomized clinical trial

Abstract

Acentric Double Pedicle Graft is an alternative to Double Pedicle Graft, which can improve clinical outcomes by removing tension in sutures. This study examined the effect of using Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) on the success rate of Acentric Double Pedicle Graft in treating patients with Miller Class I and II. A total of 16 lesions of Miller Class I and II were studied in 8 patients. Samples were divided into two groups in terms of PRF usage: with PRF and without PRF. Indices including recession depth, width of keratinized gingiva, and pocket depth were measured by standard Michigan O Probe with Williams Marking. Six months later, Kolmogorov Smirnov test, Wilcoxon nonparametric test, and SPSS-17 were used to analyze the data. The recession depth, width of keratinized gingiva, and increased root coverage showed a significant difference between the two groups after surgery, but no significant difference was found in the pocket depth. Applying PRF with Acentric Double Pedicle Graft reduces the recession depth, increases the width of keratinized gingiva, and enhances the extent of root coverage when compared with the situation where PRF is not used. Therefore, this study supports use of PRF with Acentric Double Pedicle Graft in root coverage treatments.
