Introduction: The main objective of any therapeutic intervention aimed at root coverage is to restore the tissue margin to the cemento-enamel junction and to regenerate the lost periodontium.
Aim: To compare the effectiveness of Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) and Amniotic Membrane (AM) in the treatment of gingival recession by Coronally Advanced Flap (CAF) Technique.
Materials and Methods: Thirty systemically healthy patients who met inclusion-exclusion criteria were selected. After Phase-I therapy, patients were randomly allocated to one of the groups; PRF (Group-A) and Amnion Group (Group-B). Clinical parameters like Plaque Index (PI), Recession Depth (RD) and Width of Keratinized Gingiva (WKG) were measured on the baseline day, three months and six months postoperatively. Mann-Whitney test and Wilcoxon signed ranks test were applied for intergroup and intragroup comparisons respectively.
Results: Intergroup comparison between platelet rich fibrin and amniotic membrane showed statistically insignificant difference in the recession depth and width of keratinized gingiva at three and six months postoperatively.
Conclusion: Both the membranes were equally effective in terms of recession coverage and increase in width of keratinized gingiva.
