Periodontal regeneration can be defined as the reconstitution of a lost or injured part to restore the function of the periodontium. Regeneration of lost periodontal tissues are the ultimate goal of any periodontal therapy. Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) was developed in France by Choukroun et al in 2001. It belongs to a second generation platelet concentrate with autologus fibrin matrix containing cytokines and platelets. In periodontal wound healing it helps and motivates tissue repair. This case report investigate the effectiveness of autologous PRF along with the use of DFDBA (Demineralised freeze dried bone graft) in the management of intrabony defects.
