Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine the influence of platelet rich fibrin to reduction of periodontal problems after surgical removal of third molar.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Mastication Disorder Procedure: autologous platlet rich fibrin Procedure: one side in control group Phase 4

Detailed Description:
After extraction or surgical removal of third molar, a deep bony pocket created behind the second molar specially in the mandible. For reduction of this problem, investigators, needed to acceleration tissue healing. For this purpose, investigators used platelet rich fibrin (autologous) and followed patient for 3 months.
