Destructive periodontal diseases are rare occurrences in the paediatric population. Moreover, the regenerative potential of the periodontal tissues and supporting structures of teeth is even rare, once irreversible damage has occurred. The aim of this paper is to discuss the regeneration of alveolar bone defect in a 14-year-old using concentrated growth factors (CGF). Following crown removal, scaling, debridement and site preparation, CGF was placed and secured in one-walled defect in the mesial side of the lower right permanent molar. The crown was replaced on to the tooth and the patient was followed up at 1, 3, 6, 9 and 12 months for clinical and radiographic evaluation. After 12 months, the radiographic evaluation revealed the defect to be filled with alveolar bone and probing pocket depth had reduced significantly. Thus, CGF can be an effective agent and can act as a potential scaffold for periodontal regeneration in adolescents with bone loss.
