Brief Summary:
Platelet rich fibrin is a second generation platelet concentration which contains various growth factors. The aim of this study is to evaluate the clinical and biochemical efficacy of PRF in subjects of chronic periodontitis in the operation of conventional periodontal flap.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Chronic Periodontitis Device: Platelet Rich Fibrin Device: Conventional Flap Surgery Phase 2

Detailed Description:
PRF was developed in 2001 by Choukroun in France, it was the second generation fibrin adhesive, and was used to accelerate the soft and hard tissue healing. Many studies have shown beneficial effects of PRF on osteoconductive filler material in sinus lift operations, treatment of periodontal sulcus defect and treatment of furcation defects. Also PRF contains many growth factors. PRF accelerates periodontal regeneration through the gradually excreted growth factors and contributes to the bone regeneration. In this study, the investigators evaluated the effect of PRF on growth factors and its contribution to periodontal regeneration in subjects with chronic periodontitis.

Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Triple (Participant, Care Provider, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Investigation of the Contributions of Platelet Rich Fibrin Combined With Conventional Periodontal Flap on Periodontal Healing
Study Start Date : December 2012
Actual Primary Completion Date : June 2013
Actual Study Completion Date : December 2013

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Platelet Rich Fibrin
Platelet Rich Fibrin was applied with conventional flap surgery for treatment of periodontal bone loss in test group.
Device: Platelet Rich Fibrin
Platelet rich fibrin increases the growth factors. So it was applied for treatment of periodontal bone loss.

Active Comparator: Conventional Flap Surgery
Platelet Rich Fibrin was not applied to control groups. Only conventional flap surgery was applied to control groups.
Device: Conventional Flap Surgery
Only Conventional Flap Surgery treatment the bone loss limitedly.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Levels of IGF-1, VEGF, BMP-2, FGF-2 on Weekly [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    Change from baseline IGF-1, VEGF, BMP-2, FGF-2 levels of GCF at 1 month were measured by periopaper.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Alteration of Clinical Attachment Level [ Time Frame: 6 month ]
    Change from baseline Clinical Attachment Levels at 6 months were measured with periodontal probe.

  2. Alteration of Periodontal Pocket Depth [ Time Frame: 6 month ]
    Change from baseline Pocket Depth at 6 months were measured with periodontal probe.
