The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of platelet rich fibrin (PRF) in periodontal regeneration in generalized aggressive periodontitis (GAgP) patients. Two patients diagnosed with GAgP were selected for this study. Baseline clinical and radiographic examination was performed and patients were treated by surgical periodontal therapy along with PRF. Post-surgical re-evaluation was carried out at regular intervals to evaluate clinical and radiographic changes. Surgical periodontal therapy accompanying the placement of PRF in angular defects of GAgP patients showed decreased probing pocket depth, increased attachment level and radiographic bone fill when baseline and 9 month follow-up data was compared. Surgical reconstructive therapy with placement of PRF in angular defects of GAgP patients can be an effective approach to enhance the periodontal regeneration.
