AbstractTooth loss can occur as a result of dental caries, periodontal disease, or trauma due to road traffic accidents. Replacement of missing teeth is an important need for patients attending clinics because it restores normal contour, function, comfort, aesthetics, speech, and health by restoring the defective tooth with a prosthesis that
provides functional efficiency, structural balance, and aesthetic harmony. Materials and methods: A total of 30 patients were divided into two groups - Group I (implant placed with PRF and HA graft) and Group II (implant placed without PRF and HA graft). The patients were prospectively evaluated clinically and radiographically using digital radiography. Results: It was observed that patients in Group I had less crestal bone loss, which aids in achieving an aesthetic outcome and better patient acceptance. Conclusion: Immediate implants with PRF and HA graft causes stimulation and acceleration of bone regeneration. It is recommended to use PRF and graft as a viable option in improving success.
