A Comparison of Two Socket Sealing Collagen Matrices for Extraction Socket Management


Brief description of study

A prospective RCT of intact extractions with delayed implant placement comparing extraction socket management effectiveness and office economics of two collagen matrices. Soft tissue wound healing will be assessed out to 4-months post-operative, when implants will be placed.

Detailed Study Description

A prospective, randomized, multi-center, controlled clinical study of intact extractions (bony dehiscences <1/3 socket apico-coronal and mesial-distal dimension) with delayed implant placement. Study objective: to compare extraction socket management effectiveness and office economics of a frequently used wound dressing (control) with a soft tissue augmentation matrix (test) in 32-64 subjects 18 -75 years of age with intact (bony dehiscence, if present, < 1/3 socket dimension) extractions intended for dental implant replacement. Following screening subjects will undergo tooth extraction and randomization to either the control or test therapy. After treatment, subjects will be followed until 4- months, the time of implant placement. Primary outcome: soft tissue wound healing measured by (1) gap closure and (2) graft containment at all time points.
