Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Group 1: Puros Dermis
Experimental treatment group of subjects who each have a single non-adjacent Miller's Class I or II gingival recession defect, greater than or equal to 2 mm, located on the buccal aspect of the maxillary incisor, canine, or premolar.
Device: Puros® Dermis versus Alloderm®
Puros Dermis and Alloderm (both Allograft Tissue Matrix)
Other Name: Allograft Tissue Matrix, Human Acellular Dermal Matrix (ACDM)
Active Comparator: Group 2: Alloderm
Control group of subjects who each have a single non-adjacent Miller's Class I or II gingival recession defect, greater than or equal to 2 mm, located on the buccal aspect of the maxillary incisor, canine, or premolar.
Device: Puros® Dermis versus Alloderm®
Puros Dermis and Alloderm (both Allograft Tissue Matrix)
Other Name: Allograft Tissue Matrix, Human Acellular Dermal Matrix (ACDM)

Detailed Description:

This is a prospective, Post-market, Randomized, Examiner-Only Masked multi-center study to evaluate whether clinical parameters for Puros Dermis are at minimum, equivalent when compared to Alloderm, the current industry standard for the treatment of single, non-adjacent Miller's Class I or II gingival recession.

  • No known allergies to study material.
  • Able to communicate with the investigator and read, understand, and sign the informed consent form.
  • Maxillary incisor, canine, or premolar with at least one Miller's Class I or II gingival recession defects that are not adjacent to one another.
  • Depth of the gingival recession defects of 2mm or greater.
  • No gingival surgery within the past 12 months at the defect site. No prior antibiotic use within 3 months with less than 2 weeks durations.
