Gingival recession is one of the most important esthetic problems for dentists. Several methods have been used in dealing with and covering gingival recession-exposed root. This article aimed to study the treatment of gingival recession using platelet-rich plasma. 155 patients at the University of Dentistry in Baghdad, Iraq at Period ontological Clinic performed this clinical study. Each patient was systemically healthy and did not have a significant history of systemic disease. The baseline plaque index and gingival index were not statistically significantly different to the postoperative index observed. At the end of 3 weeks, the baseline depth dropped gradually to three and two weeks, and the P-value dropped moderately significantly by 0.019. The average sampling depth at 1 week was 1.57 mm (0.13 mm below the base line) and 1.07 mm (0.63 mm below) and 0.81 mm (0.89 mm lower) at 2 weeks at the end of the 3-week period. Predictability data showed that 90% or more defect coverage was attained 39% of the time. Plasma rich in platelets can be applied instead of surgery in certain cases of gum recession. She is autologous, does not have postoperative pain or complication associations, is considered free of cross infection and is less expensive for the patient. Taking into consideration the comprehensive available information on the properties of PRP and improved clinical parameters, it may be considered useful to treat the gingival recession in conjunction with collagen sponge. Amina fluoride, and stannous fluoride rinses and toothpastes have been found to control gingival recession plaque buildup in aggressive periodontitis in addition to mechanical oral hygiene procedure for gingival recessions.
