CCRP Research

Ongoing Studies

Study 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).

Salivary Lipids

The purpose of this research is to determine if there are any differences in lipid content and composition in saliva from people with healthy gums compared to people with gum disease.   After giving informed consent, subjects would provide their age, undergo an oral examination by a dentist and spit into a tube for 15 minutes.  The entire process would take about 40 minutes.  Compensation is available.
