Abstract


BACKGROUND: Multirooted teeth offer unique and challenging problems due to the furcation area, creates situations in which routine periodontal procedures are somewhat limited and special procedures are generally required.
CASE DETAIL: The present case was showing the management of grade II furcation defect by platelet rich fibrin (PRF) and β-Tricalcium phosphate with coronally advanced flap.
CONCLUSION: Platelet rich fibrin and β-Tricalcium phosphate with coronally advanced flap have been shown to be a promising and successful approach for the treatment of furcation defect. Its gaining clinical attachment  significantly manages both the gingival recession and furcation involvement
simultaneously.
KEY WORDS: β-Tricalcium Phosphate, Coronally Advanced Flap, Furcation Involvement, Platelet Rich Fibrin.
