Brief Summary:
The purpose of this present study is to compare alveolar bone changes and markers of gingival health around the new Lanes® dental implant which were rehabilitate using the new switch platform abutment ( SPR ) and the traditional ( CPK ) abutment.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Group A- 23 Implant Using Switch Platform -SPK Abutment. Group B- 22 Implant Using the Traditional -CPK Abutment. Procedure: spk Procedure: CPK Abutments Not Applicable

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 45 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Study Start Date : September 2010
Estimated Primary Completion Date : June 2011

23 implants using SPK Abutments
Procedure: spk

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Soft tissue evaluation: [ Time Frame: 12 month ]
    Three month following abutment connection (approximately 2 months following cementation of the final crowns) baseline measurement will be taken. This will include probing pockets depth (PPD) and bleeding on probing (BOP) dichotomized in to 0 and 1 This measurement will be repeated at 12 month post surgery.

  2. Radiographic evaluation: [ Time Frame: 12 month post surgery ]

    Bite wing radiographs will be used to assess changes in radiographic bone height.

    Baseline radiographs will be taking immediately following abutment connection and final radiographic evaluation will be taken 12 months post surgery.
