Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE The Use of Dental Pulp Tissue as an Autogenous Graft for Ridge Augmentation
Official Title  ICMJE The Use of Dental Pulp Tissue as an Autogenous Graft for Ridge Augmentation
Brief Summary The purpose of this study is to examine and compare the effects of autogenous dental pulp tissue on bone formation in the extraction sockets as compared to commonly used particulate bone graft. The effects on bone formation will be examined using a wide variety of assays.
Detailed Description Not Provided
Study Type  ICMJE Interventional
Study Phase  ICMJE Not Applicable
Study Design  ICMJE Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double (Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Condition  ICMJE Tooth Loss
Intervention  ICMJE
  • Other: Particulate bone graft
    Creos allo.gain allogenic bone particulate mineralized cortical bone will be hydrated and placed in the extraction socket.
    Other Names:
    • creos allo.gain
    • allogenic bone particulates
  • Other: Autogenous dental pulp tissue
    Dental pulp will be isolated from teeth extracted for non-periodontal reasons chairside, mixed with hydrated particulate bone graft, and then placed in the extraction socket.
  • Other: Resorbable collagen membrane
    After placement of particulate bone graft or particulate bone graft plus autogenous dental pulp tissue, socket will be covered by a resorbable collagen membrane and sutured.
  • Other: Suture
    Resorbable or non-resorbable suture material
Study Arms  ICMJE
  • Experimental: Particulate bone graft plus autogenous dental pulp tissue
    Dental pulp will be isolated from teeth extracted for non-periodontal reasons chairside. The isolated dental pulp will be mixed with hydrated particulate bone graft, and the mixture will be placed in the debrided extraction socket. The socket will be covered by a resorbable collagen membrane and sutured.
    Interventions:
    • Other: Particulate bone graft
    • Other: Autogenous dental pulp tissue
    • Other: Resorbable collagen membrane
    • Other: Suture
  • Active Comparator: Particulate bone graft
    Hydrated particulate bone graft will be placed in the debrided extraction socket. The socket will be covered by a resorbable collagen membrane and sutured.
    Interventions:
    • Other: Particulate bone graft
    • Other: Resorbable collagen membrane
    • Other: Suture
