Abstract: PRF is a second generation platelet concentrate obtained from autologous blood with simplified processing without the need for biochemical clot handling, so it is used as a periodontal dressing for palatal wound in this case report. Aim: The aim of this case report was to evaluate the advantage of PRF palatal bandage as a periodontal dressing on pain scores at the palatal burn site. Materials and method: A Patient with history of traumatic extraction of 18 and carbolic acid burn in the same palatal region reported to the Out Patient Department of Periodontology. Oral examination revealed palatal mucosal erosion involving 14, 15, 16, 17, tooth region. A CBCT was done. The region was anaesthetised and a PRF dressing was placed and stabilised with 5.0 suture covering the wound area. Prophylactic antibiotics were given and patient was recalled after every 7 day for 1 month. Result: PRF palatal bandage showed post-operative significant lower pain score on consecutive visits. Conclusion: PRF helped in accelerating the healing by properties like enhanced growth factors, angiogenesis, and wound protection from external wound.
