Performance of MicroTextured Dental Implants
The study will compare initial peri-implant bone healing and longitudinal osseointegration between a fully microtextured dental implant and an analogous implant with a smooth machined collar.
The investigators hypothesize the fully textured implant will result in less peri-implant crestal bone resorption than the implant with a machined collar.
|Partially Edentulous Jaw||Device: Microtextured dental implant treatment Device: Dental implant treatment|
|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||A Randomized Clinical Trial to Assess the Performance of MicroTextured Dental Implants With or Without a Machined Collar|
- Change in Millimeters of Bone Loss Surrounding the Implant Device [ Time Frame: Implant insertion, 12 months post-insertion ]Using radiographic images and image-processing software, measurements of bone height at the mesial and distal of each implant will be captured in millimeters.
- Changes in Peri-implant Gingivitis Score [ Time Frame: 1 year after placement ]Measurement of changes in peri-implant gingivitis score [Loe and Silness gingival index (GI)] after implant restoration
- Millimeters of Periodontal Pocket Depth Surrounding the Dental Implant Device [ Time Frame: 1 year after placement ]Probing pocket depth (PD) is measured from the mucosal sulcus to the depth of the pocket attachment after implant restoration.

Experimental: Microtextured dental implant
Randomized for microtextured dental implant treatment
Device: Microtextured dental implant treatment
Microtextured dental implant treatment will include a surgically inserted device implanted into edentulous areas of the jaw where natural teeth have been lost and adequate bone exists.
Other Name: Screw-vent dental implant
Active Comparator: Dental implant
Randomized dental implant treatment with machined-collar implants
Device: Dental implant treatment
Treatment with dental implants; implants with a machined collar will be surgically implanted into edentulous areas of the jaw where natural teeth have been lost and adequate bone exists.
