Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is the generation of platelet concentrates containing growth factors, which play a role in the
process of healing and tissue regeneration. This study aimed to compare the effects of using of PRF with subepithelial
connective tissue graft (SCTG)as a treatment to gingival recession Miller Class I-II. Nine patients with bilateral
gingival recession, as the subjects have two recessions. One side was treated with coronally advanced flap
(CAF)+SCTG, while the other side was treated with CAF+PRF. The length of the recession is measured and
calculated as the percentage of root closure before and after surgery (10 and 30 days). The results showed that there
were significant differences in the average length of recessions between PRF and SCTG before and after the action on
day 10 and day 30 (p<0.05). Closing percentage of gingival recession 10 days after SCTG treatment was 7 (77.8%)had experienced completely closing; while the PRF, only 6 (66.7%); p>0.05. Whereas on day 30
, after SCTG
treatment, all subjects had undergone a recession closing perfectly, while the PRF group only 66,7% recession that
have closing completely (p=0.05). It was concluded that the CAF+SCTG provide maximum results compared with
CAF+PRF in treating gingival recession Miller Class I–II.
