Guided Bone Regeneration Using a Platelet-Rich Fibrin Membrane and Sticky Bone Graft along with Implant placement in Maxillary Anterior region- A Case Report
Aprajita, Atul Bhatnagar

The maxillary anterior region is considered to be the esthetic zone of human dentition.  Missing teeth in this area leads to severely compromised   aesthetics and function. Endosseous implants are a viable option for treatment of this problem.  However, placement of implants depends on the quantity and quality of available bone. When bone deficiencies are present in the alveolar bone  in either vertical or horizontal direction, it is necessary to augment the ridge.  This can be achieved by various methods and materials. In this case report, we present a successful case of ridge augmentation in anterior maxilla using xenograft and resorbable collagen membrane along with platelet-rich fibrin.  A fiber-reinforced bridge was given during the healing period.  After six months of the healing period, permanent restoration was done.
