Abstract

Nowadays, dental implants are the best treatment option for tooth loss, but implant placement requires sufficient bone volume. In defect area of alveolar ridge, augmentation is done by various available methods. Utilizing the growth factors such as platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) derived from patient's blood platelets improve treatment outcome. PRF accelerates the wound healing, enhances osteogenic activity as well as regulates the inflammation. Bone grafting, guided bone regeneration, and ridge-split technique promote new bone formation. The aim of this case report is to demonstrate an efficient method of bone augmentation using sticky bone along with PRF membrane, followed by ridge-split technique and engagement of nasal floor to place implant.
