Brief Summary:
Immunologically evaluation of myeloperoxidase level as indicator for inflammatory reactions on modified surface abutments compared to machined surface abutments.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Tooth Loss Device: ESTA abutment Roxolid Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

One study abutment per patient will be placed. After healing for 6 to 7 weeks, patients will be asked to stop oral hygiene at the study site for 2 weeks.

Sulcus fluid and plaque samples will be taken at the abutment site at several visits before and during abdication of oral hygiene.

The study finishes with biopsy visit. Afterwards a regular abutment will be placed and the patients will be treated according to the standard protocol of the clinic to obtain their final restoration

Arm Intervention/treatment
ESTA abutment Roxolid

One study abutment per patient will be placed. After healing for 6 to 7 weeks, patients will be asked to stop oral hygiene at the study site for 2 weeks.

Sulcus fluid and plaque samples will be taken at the abutment site at several visits before and during abdication of oral hygiene.

The study finishes with biopsy visit. Afterwards a regular abutment will be placed and the patients will be treated according to the standard protocol of the clinic to obtain their final restoration.

Device: ESTA abutment Roxolid
Enhanced Soft Tissue Attachment surface on Roxolid or machined surface on Roxolid abutment placement.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evaluation of Myeloperoxidase level as indicator for inflammatory reactions on modified surface abutments compared to machined surface abutments. [ Time Frame: Inflammation assessment and biopsy at study day 70. ]
    A biopsy will be taken at study day 70. The study abutment will be removed together with a small slice of the surrounding soft tissue to histologically evaluation.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evaluation of myeloperoxidase level of modified surface abutments compared to machined surface abutment at visit 2, 3, 4, and 6. [ Time Frame: 20-24 weeks ]
    A immunology sample will be taken 2-3 weeks after abutment placement, followed on week 6-7, week 8, week 9, and at week 20-24.

  2. evaluation of inflammatory parameters of modified surface abutment compared to machined surface abutments [ Time Frame: 20-24 weeks ]
    A immunology sample will be taken 2-3 weeks after abutment placement, followed on week 6-7, week 8, week 9, and at week 20-24.

  3. Evaluation of clinical inflammatory parameters of modified surface abutments compared to machined surface abutments based on modified Mombelli plaque index and modified Lobene gingival index. [ Time Frame: 20-24 weeks ]
    A immunology sample will be taken 2-3 weeks after abutment placement, followed on week 6-7, week 8, week 9, and at week 20-24.

  4. Evaluation of subgingival plaque extension of modified surface abutments compared to machined surface abutments [ Time Frame: 9 weeks after abutment placement ]
    Patients will be asked to suspend oral hygiene in the area of the abutment. after 42-49 days after abutment placement for 14 days. At study week 8 a histological sample will be taken

  5. Evaluation of soft tissue around the abutment of modified surface abutment compared to machined surface abutments [ Time Frame: At 8 weeks after abutment placement ]
    8 weeks after abutment placement patients have been asked for 14 days of abdication of oral hygiene. A histological sample will be taken then.

  6. Evaluation of bacterial community at the abutment site [ Time Frame: 28 days ]
    At study day 42-49, day 49-56, day 56-63, and day 77-105 a microbiological sample will be taken

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects must have voluntary signed the informed consent form before any study related action.
  • Males and females with at least 18 years of age
  • Non-smokers
  • Straumann bone level implant (healed for at least 4 weeks) in a tooth gap in the maxilla or mandible with thick tissue biotype
  • Adequate oral hygiene (Full mouth plaque index; O'Leary, et al. 1972) <25% at abutment placement
  • The patient must be able to open the mouth to allow removal of the abutment at the planned abutment site

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Systemic disease that would interfere with dental implant therapy (e.g. uncontrolled diabetes)
  • Any antibiotic treatment or anti-inflammatory treatment within the past 2 month
  • Any contraindications for oral surgical procedures
  • Mucosal diseases (e.g. lichen planus, mouth ulcer)
  • History of local irradiation therapy
  • Current treated (within the last 12 month) or untreated periodontitis
  • Current treated (within the last 6 month) or untreated gingivitis
  • Probing pocket depth of ≥4 mm on one of the teeth immediately adjacent to the dental implant site
  • Severe bruxing or clenching habits
  • Lack of primary stability of the implant at abutment placement
  • Subjects who have undergone administration of any investigational device within 30 days of enrolment in the study
  • Conditions or circumstances, in the opinion of the investigator, which would prevent completion of study participation or interfere with analysis of study results, such as history of non-compliance or unreliability
  • Physical or mental handicaps that would interfere with the ability to follow protocol procedures
  • Pregnant or breastfeeding wome
  • Insufficient soft tissue attachment to the neck of the abutment (e.g. visibility of the abutment platform or exposed ESTAnsurface) after abutment placement
