Brief Summary:
This study is a comparison of implant placed and simultaneously grafted with either autogenous connective tissue or a connective tissue allograft. The objective is to determine the change in soft tissue thickness and determine if a better result is obtained with the autograft or the allograft. The hypothesis is that there will be no difference in soft tissue thickness over the implant between the autograft and the allograft technique.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Edentulous Procedure: connective tissue autograft Procedure: connective tissue allograft Not Applicable

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 27 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single (Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: The Effect of Implant Placement and Simultaneous Soft Tissue Augmentation in the Esthetic Zone Using Either Connective Tissue Autograft or Acellular Dermal Matrix Allograft on Peri-implant Hard and Soft Tissue Healing
Study Start Date : September 2011
Actual Primary Completion Date : June 2013
Actual Study Completion Date : June 2013

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: Connective tissue autograft
A connective tissue autograft harvested from the palate was grafted onto the facial of a simultaneously placed dental implant and soft tissue thickness was measured at baseline and Time 4.
Procedure: connective tissue autograft
A connective tissue autograft is harvested from the palate and grafted at the site of implant placement on the facial surface.
Experimental: connective tissue allograft
An acellular dermal matrix allograft was grafted on the facial surface of a simultaneously placed dental implant and soft tissue thickness was measured at baseline and Time 4.
Procedure: connective tissue allograft
An acellular dermal matrix allograft (Alloderm, BioHorizons, Inc, Birmingham, AL, USA) is grafted at the site of implant placement on the facial surface.



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Soft Tissue Thickness Over the Implant [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    Soft tissue thickness at the facial osseous crest.
