Abstract

Aim: The present study was done to evaluate the efficacy of platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) with bovine bone graft (Bio-Oss™) in direct sinus augmentation for simultaneously dental implant placement.

Materials and methods: The study included 14 patients who fulfill the inclusion criteria, among them 10 were male and 4 were female with PRF with Bio-Oss™. For each patient, bone level was assessed preoperatively and postoperatively after 1, 6, and 12 months with a panoramic X-ray and radiovisiography to evaluate the vertical bone height from the shoulder of the implant to the most apical end.

Results: The outcome of the sinus lift and the implants placed was evaluated periodically at 1, 6, and 12 months postoperatively. All the patients underwent two-stage procedures. At the end of 20th week, implants were exposed; radiological parameters were assessed again for implant integration, and prosthetic rehabilitation was started after 2 weeks and it was completed by the end of 24 weeks (6 months postoperatively). Twelve months postoperatively, the endosinus bone gain noted was 7 mm, which indicated the use of PRF with bovine bone graft as a reliable filling material during simultaneous sinus lift and implantation.

Conclusion: PRF with bone graft (Bio-Oss) is used as an augmentation material after direct maxillary sinus lift, and the resulting bone formation was adequate for placement of dental implant.

Keywords: Bone graft (Bio-Oss™); dental implant; direct sinus augmentation; platelet-rich fibrin.
