New innovations to enhance periodontal tissue regeneration include the use of platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) and bone graft material. A clinical experimental design was used for this study. This study aimed to evaluate the differences in alveolar bone height following periodontitis therapy using PRF with and without bone grafts. Periapical radiograph evaluation before and after periodontitis therapy using PRF only compared to PRF in combination with bone graft was performed by assessing alveolar bone height. There were no significant differences in alveolar bone height following periodontitis therapy with PRF compared to treatment with PRF in combination with bone graft. Periodontitis therapy using PRF with and without bone graft yields similar results in the radiographic evaluation of alveolar bone height.
