ABSTRACT:-
Background: Implant stability is a critical factor influencing the success of prosthetic loading in dental implantology. Autologous platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) has been proposed as a potential adjunct to enhance osseointegration and implant stability. However, there is a lack of consensus regarding its efficacy in improving implant stability prior to prosthetic loading. Materials and Methods: A comparative evaluation was conducted to assess the impact of autologous platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) on implant stability before prosthetic loading. Twenty patients requiring dental implants were randomly divided into two groups: Group A received implants with PRF application, while Group B received implants without PRF. Implant stability quotient (ISQ) values were measured using resonance frequency analysis (RFA) at baseline and at the time of prosthetic loading. Results: The mean ISQ value in Group A (with PRF) increased from 65.4 ± 3.2 at baseline to 74.8 ± 4.1 at prosthetic loading, indicating a significant improvement in implant stability (p < 0.001). In contrast, Group B (without PRF) showed a smaller increase in mean ISQ values from 63.2 ± 3.5 to 68.9 ± 3.8, which was statistically significant but less pronounced compared to Group A (p = 0.012). Conclusion: The application of autologous platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) significantly enhances implant stability prior to prosthetic loading compared to implants without PRF. This suggests that PRF may serve as a valuable adjunct in improving osseointegration and ensuring favorable outcomes in dental implant procedures.
