Abstract INTRODUCTION: Growth factors are mediators regulating the key processes of tissue regeneration, including cell proliferation and differentiation, extracellular matrix synthesis, chemotaxis and angiogenesis. In addition to the role they play in haemostasis and inflammatory processes, thrombocytes are of major importance in the reparation of mineralized and soft tissues. Application of fibrin rich blocks with concentrated growth factors is one of the latest approaches to guided bone regeneration and augmentation of lost bony structures of the alveolar ridge. CASE REPORT: This paper presents a case of a female patient who underwent reconstruction of the defect of residual alveolar ridge of the upper jaw by applying fibrin rich blocks with concentrated growth factors and subsequent placement of two titanium endosteal implants five months after wound healing. CONCLUSION: The loss of a single tooth or several teeth sometimes entails the augmentation of lost bony structures in order to provide optimal conditions for dental implant placement and subsequent prosthetic rehabilitation. A range of contemporary surgical procedures and a variety of dental materials for reconstruction of bony defects of the upper and lower jaws are available nowadays. The method described in this paper, i.e. the application of concentrated growth factors is one of the latest approaches which poses no risk of transmissible and allergic diseases and is at the same time cost effective.
