Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1
Conventional postoperative care and instructions on dental hygiene will be provided along with the TOWE treatment which consists of the patient dispensing TOWE into a disposable dental tray and placing the dental tray over the dental arch and covering the surgical site 3 times daily for a period of 7 days. At three (3) days and seven (7) days postoperatively, photographs will be taken of all vertical releasing incisions (before suture removal).
