Gingival recession is not only an aesthetic concern but also often is associated with problems such as tooth hypersensitivity. Among various root coverage modalities, free soft-tissue gingival graft shows promising results, but is associated with patient discomfort due to the need for second surgical palatal donor site. The purpose of this case report is to evaluate the effectiveness of platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) at donor palatal site with root coverage procedure in the treatment of recession-type defects. This paper reports a case of a 31-year-old male with a root coverage procedure, and employing PRF at donor site has been discussed below. Hence, the employment of PRF at donor site not only enhances healing but also reduces patient discomfort that occurs due to palatal plate.
