Core Tip

Core Tip: Periodontally accelerated osteogenic orthodontics (PAOO) has been widely used in the treatment of patients with periodontal diseases and dental malformation. However, the combined therapy with autologous platelet-rich fibrin and PAOO in orthodontic practice has been rarely reported. The aim of this case report was to evaluate clinical and radiographic outcomes of PAOO combined with autologous platelet-rich fibrin in an adult patient with class I malocclusion with thin periodontal biotype and buccal plate deficiency in order to provide guidance for future clinical diagnosis and treatment.
