Studysort descending Objective Type Status

AlloDerm

A study on soft tissue grafting around implants.

The purpose of this research study is to determine whether you will have a better outcome with a gum graft harvested from the roof of your mouth or a human tissue graft and how you perceive both discomfort and the esthetics of the graft during the healing period.

Atlantis1

A two-arm, parallel group, randomized controlled clinical trial on adult human subjects receiving divergent or concave Atlantis™ abutments to assess peri-implant mucosa changes from prosthesis delivery to 1 year.

  • (Primary) Compare the influence of experimental concavities in the subgingival transition zone of Atlantis™ abutments on peri-implant mucosal dynamics from final restoration delivery to one year, as compared to current Atlantis™ abutments with linear divergent transition profiles.  
  • (Secondary) Quantify the horizontal soft tissue thickness changes around concave and divergent abutment transition profiles from final restoration delivery to one year.  
  • (Secondary) Evaluate changes in peri-implant health indicators, such as Gingival Index (GI), Probing Pocket Depth (PPD), and Bleeding on Probing (BOP).

Short Implant Study

This study aims to determine the effect of obesity in type II diabetics on bone forming cells in healthy non-obese and obese type II diabetic individuals. 

We are recruiting 48 individuals: 24 healthy, non-obese and 24 obese, type II diabetics. Subjects will have two ‘short-implants’ surgically placed and systemically removed and replaced with functional implants over the course of a week.
