Background : Extraction of deep impacted mandibular third molar lead to periodontal defect in the adjacent second molar, the using of bone graft & PRP as regenerative material aid in healing improvement & preventing periodontal pocket development. Materials and Methods: Population sample included in this research was randomly selected from patients attended the teaching dental hospital of the college of dentistry/ Almuthana university seeking dental treatment. 30 patients (20 females & 10 males), the age of these patients ranged from 17-26 years. All selected patients were nonsmokers, with bilateral mandibular third molar inclusion in mesio-horizontal position. In the study group, the alveolar cavity was filled with PRP, BPBM alone. The alveolar cavities of the control group were treated without PRP & BPBM. Inclusion criteria included the presence of a pocket that was located distally to the second mandibular molar with a probing depth greater than or equal to 7mm. Results: Following 18 weeks, a significant reduction in pocket depth & gain in clinical attachment level at distal root of second molar in both group treated with bone graft & platelet rich plasma in compare to control group. Conclusion: The using of bone graft & platelet rich plasma is necessary for filling bony defect following deep impacted third molar extraction to prevent periodontal defect development distally to the second molar and improvement new bone regeneration.
