Brief Summary:
This article aims to provide a non- staged treatment protocol to placing dental implants in compromised fresh sockets in the aesthetic zone.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Immediate Implants Procedure: Non-staged vestibular fresh socket therapy Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
This is a site-specific therapy uses study a slowly resorbing regenerative barrier (shield) to augment any thin or deficient labial plate of bone, enhances the overlying soft tissue quality and quantity at the same time with implant fixture placement using a computer-guided surgical template.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 12 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: The Vestibular Socket Therapy : A Novel Concept for Immediate Implant Placement in Defective Fresh Extraction Sites
Actual Study Start Date : May 24, 2018
Actual Primary Completion Date : June 10, 2019
Estimated Study Completion Date : August 2019

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: xenograft cortical flexible sheet
a-traumatic tooth removal , socket lavage and curettage, performing a vestibular access horizontal incision corresponding to the socket 3-4 mm apically from the muccogingival junction , a tunnel is then created from the socket office and extended apically till it connects with the vestibular access incision, a computer guided surgical template is then used to deliver the implant in its optimal position, a slowly resorbable membrane shield is then introduced through the tunnel and stabilized with a membrane tac , it is a sturdy fixable membrane barrier placed above the labial plate
Procedure: Non-staged vestibular fresh socket therapy
a slowly resorbable membrane shield is placed above the labial plate of bone so that when the thin labial plate started its resorption process the shield remains till a complete gap fill occurred thus leading to a thicker labial plate of bone or it preserves the socket architecture until a complete bone fill occurred inside the socket
Other Name: osteoflex

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. radiographic buccal bone thickness [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    preoperative and follow up CBCTs are superimposed on each other and buccal bone thickness is measure at 3 similar points on both CBCTs and then a mean is calculated

  2. radiographic buccal bone height [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    preoperative and follow up CBCTs are superimposed on each other and buccal bone height is measured in relation to implant shoulder level

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. final esthetic outcome of soft tissue [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Pink esthetic score. based on subjective assessment of mesial papilla, distal papilla, midfacial level, midfacial contour, alveolar process deficiency, soft tissue color and texture. each item is given a score between 0 and 2, where 0 is the worst and 2 is the best outcome. Then, a final score ranging between 0-14 is calculated
