Radicular cysts are most common asymptomatic lesions of the jaw, it comprises up to 68% of cysts in the region. Large cyst of the jaw necessitate surgical management to obtain bone regeneration and healing of periapical tissues. Use of patients own blood components such as platelet rich fibrin (PRF) to enhance healing is unique concept in oral surgery. Through this case report we would like to illustrate the effectiveness of PRF mixed with synthetic bone substitute for guided bone regeneration in bone defect resulting from a periapical cyst enucleation. The treatment outcome of this case report shows that a combination of synthetic bone graft and PRF is successful in accelerating the physiological healing.
