Platelet-Rich Fibrin with Bone Grafts for Regeneration of Bony Defect following Extraction of Supernumerary Teeth: A Case Report
Chandrasekaran, Balamanikandasrinivasan / Suresh, Nanditha / Muthusamy, Senthilkumar
Supernumerary teeth are hyperdontic variants due to abnormalities during tooth development. Here, we report a case on regeneration of bony defect, which ensued following extraction of two supernumerary teeth in the mandibular premolar region, using a combination of bone grafts and platelet-rich fibrin. To the best of our knowledge, it is the first time synergistic use of biomaterials with bone grafts have been used for this type of management.
