Introduction: Loss of interdental papilla marks phonetics, functional and esthetic problem. Surgical techniques are diverse, but none have given predictable results.
Aim: The purpose of this case report is to present reconstruction of papilla by using platelet rich fibrin membrane in maxillary anterior region.
Methodology: 30yr old male patient reported with an unesthetic smile due to loss of interdental papilla in the maxillary left central and lateral incisor region since 6 months. The treatment was planned for reconstruction of lost interdental papilla using PRF. A pouch was created with a semilunar incision, PRF was prepared and inserted into the pouch and the entire gingivopapillary unit was displaced coronally.
Conclusion: Optimal fill was noted at 1, 3 and 6 months postoperatively with excellent esthetic outcome.Use of PRF and proper technique may thus be the panacea for interdental papilla augmentation.
