Study of Root Coverage With Acellular Dermal Matrix: PurosÂ® Dermis Versus AllodermÂ®
The purpose of the study is 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.
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.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Bio-equivalence Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Investigator), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Exposure of the root surface when the edge of the gum (GINGIVA) moves apically away from the crown of the tooth. This is common with advancing age, vigorous tooth brushing, diseases, or tissue loss of the gingiva, the PERIODONTAL LIGAMENT and the supporting bone (ALVEOLAR PROCESS).
Excessive growth of the gingiva either by an increase in the size of the constituent cells (GINGIVAL HYPERTROPHY) or by an increase in their number (GINGIVAL HYPERPLASIA). (From Jablonski's Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p574)
A layer of vascularized connective tissue underneath the EPIDERMIS. The surface of the dermis contains innervated papillae. Embedded in or beneath the dermis are SWEAT GLANDS; HAIR FOLLICLES; and SEBACEOUS GLANDS.
An abnormal extension of a gingival sulcus not accompanied by the apical migration of the epithelial attachment.
The flowing of blood from the marginal gingival area, particularly the sulcus, seen in such conditions as GINGIVITIS, marginal PERIODONTITIS, injury, and ASCORBIC ACID DEFICIENCY.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate CelTx as a safe and effective alternative to palatal tissue in the treatment of subjects (with recession-type defects) who have an insufficient zon...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of bilateral lateral rectus muscle recession versus unilateral lateral rectus recession with medial rectus resection procedures f...
Following mastectomy (removal of your breast), reconstruction of your breast(s) can be performed using tissue expanders and implants. At the same operation as your mastectomy, a tissue exp...
Skin aging is a multifactorial process involving the 3 layers of the skin: Epidermis, dermis and hypodermis. Skin aging process involves among others: skin roughness (epidermis), skin dysc...
This study will examine common features of gingival overgrowth (excessive growth of the gums around the teeth) that develops in patients with the hereditary form of the condition and in th...
The aim of this study was to investigate the centric occlusal contact pattern in maximum intercuspation and to study the nature of occlusal contacts during maximum intercuspation to protrusive, latero...
Gingival recession is defined as the apical migration of the gingival margin with exposure of root surfaces. The etiology of the condition is multifactorial. Given the high rate of gingival recession...
A comparative evaluation of subepithelial connective tissue graft (SCTG) versus platelet concentrate graft (PCG) in the treatment of gingival recession using coronally advanced flap technique: A 12-month study.
The objective of this study was to clinically evaluate and compare the efficacy of platelet concentrate graft (PCG) with that of subepithelial connective tissue graft (SCTG) using a coronally advanced...
Today's patients are increasingly conscious of personal appearance, and much attention has been focused on denuded roots that are exposed during smiling. These concerns have given rise to numerous app...
Gingival recession (GR) is a common manifestation in most populations, and is considered as an early sign of periodontal disease. GR is an intriguing condition where various factors play an important...
