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...
Background: Gingival recession remains an important problem in dental esthetics. A new dermal matrix material has been introduced but its effectiveness has not been studied and compared to current der...
Gingival recession is a common finding in many patients. Some patients will not be concerned whereas others will have aesthetic concerns or complain of sensitivity. This paper highlights the aetiology...
Gingival recession is a complex phenomenon. Root coverage results can be predictable regarding to the anatomy of the area. This includes the width of keratinized and attached gingiva, the buccolingual...
This paper is the second in a three part series looking at the aetiology and management of gingival recession. Part one discussed the aetiology and non-surgical management and this part aims to discus...
