BACKGROUND: Different barrier membranes and augmentation techniques are used in oral surgery to recover lost bone structures with varied success. Recently, a combination between bone graft materials and Platelet-Rich-Fibrin (PRF) is implemented in the periodontology and implantology.

AIM: The aim of this case report was to assess the possibility for augmentation of the alveolar ridge in the frontal region of the upper jaw, utilizing a combination of bone graft material, injectable platelet-rich-fibrin (i-PRF) and advanced platelet-rich fibrin (A-PRF).

MATERIALS AND METHODS: An 18 year-old male with expulsion of tooth 11 and partial fracture of the alveolar ridge was treated with augmentation of the alveolar ridge using bone graft material, injectable platelet-rich-fibrin(i-PRF) and advanced platelet-rich-fibrin (A-PRF). Clinical results were reviewed 4 months after the augmentation and a dental implant was placed.

RESULTS: The postoperative period was uneventful. The control CBCT scan showed good organization of new bone allowing placement of a dental implant.

CONCLUSION: The successful clinical and radiographic results of the case suggest that using A-PRF and i-PRF can be beneficial for bone augmentation of the alveolar ridge before implant placement.
