To Compare Ridge Preservation Technique Using Leukocyte Platelet Rich Fibrin (L-PRF) and Freeze-dried Bone Allograft (FDBA) Layered Technique vs L-PRF/FDBA and L-PRF Alone in Influencing Quantity and Quality of New Bone Formation in Grafted Extraction Soc

2019-10-24 12:49:26 | BioPortfolio


This study will evaluate the effect of Leukocyte Platelet Rich Fibrin and freeze-dried bone allograft in a layered technique on the bone quantity and quality following socket grafting in preparation for endosseous implant placement.

Pre (baseline)- and post-grafting (3 months) clinical as well as 2- and 3-dimensional radiographic measurements will be used to evaluate the dimensional ridge changes between sites grafted with L-PRF/FDBA layered technique vs. L-PRF/FDBA and L-PRF alone.

Histological analysis will be performed by a bone biopsy taken at time of surgical re-entry (after 3 months) of grafted sites to place the dental implant and assessed for differences in new bone formation between the three types of graft.


This study is a prospective, three-arm randomized trial that will evaluate and compare the bone healing following ridge preservation of extraction sockets using either L-PRF/FDBA layered technique or L-PRF/FDBA or L-PRF alone in a total of 30 patients (10 in each arm).

Qualifying participants and defects will be randomized following a computerized permutation block to receive either technique on day of surgery. Tooth extraction will be performed with a flapless minimally invasive technique, followed by socket grafting with a randomized graft.

The mineralized cortico-cancellous bone allograft that will be used in this study will be obtained from the same donor, lot and tissue bank to account for variation in age, race, gender and related healing potential of different graft sources.

Bone core biopsies will be harvested at time of implant placement 3 months following socket grafting. Bone cores will then undergo histological and histomorphometrical analyses to determine qualitative and quantitative healing differences between three treatment groups.

Clinical measurements are gathered at 2 time points (grating and implant placement) at all defects and will be compared for differences.

Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) initial scans are conducted immediately following socket grafting and second scans obtained prior to implant placement. Virtual implant planning software will be utilized to assess and compare the 2- and 3-dimensional changes for all defects.
