Active Comparator: Platform-matched dental implant
Platform-matched dental implant placement to measure marginal bone loss, gingival margin position, and papilla fill.
Procedure: Platform-matched dental implant
A platform-matched dental implant will be placed surgically, restored with a crown and evaluated for up to 12 months.
Experimental: Platform-switched dental implant
Platform-switched dental implant placement to measure marginal bone loss, gingival margin position, and papilla fill.
Procedure: Platform-switched dental implant
A platform-switched dental implant will be placed surgically, restored with a crown and evaluated for up to 12 months.
- Marginal alveolar bone loss [ Time Frame: 12-months post dental implant placement ]Bone loss will be measured radiographically using a stent
- Buccal implant recession [ Time Frame: 12-months post dental implant placement ]Buccal implant recession will be measured using a North Carolina probe using the adjacent teeth and incisal edge of the crown
- Papilla fill [ Time Frame: 12-months post dental implant placement ]Presence or absence of black triangle apical to the contact point
- Buccal soft tissue thickness around implant [ Time Frame: 12-months post dental implant placement ]Thickness will be measured with an endodontic file using a rubber stopper (objective measure of tissue thickness by penetrating tissue and measuring the thickness in mm).
