Clinical and Histological Evaluation of OSSIX-Plus Resorbable Collagen Membranes for Alveolar Ridge Preservation Following Exodontia
The purpose of this study is to document and evaluate how protective covering materials (a barrier membrane called OSSIX-Plus) can help preserve bone size after a tooth is removed. As you know by now, dental implants can only be placed when enough bone is found and this protective covering may help the healing of your bone after the tooth is removed. For this study, the investigators are asking that records taken during procedures (pictures of teeth only, notes) can be used for publications.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
The pathologic wearing away of the tooth substance by brushing, bruxism, clenching, and other mechanical causes. It is differentiated from TOOTH ATTRITION in that this type of wearing away is the result of tooth-to-tooth contact, as in mastication, occurring only on the occlusal, incisal, and proximal surfaces. It differs also from TOOTH EROSION, the progressive loss of the hard substance of a tooth by chemical processes not involving bacterial action. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p2)
The wearing away of a tooth as a result of tooth-to-tooth contact, as in mastication, occurring only on the occlusal, incisal, and proximal surfaces. It is chiefly associated with aging. It is differentiated from TOOTH ABRASION (the pathologic wearing away of the tooth substance by friction, as brushing, bruxism, clenching, and other mechanical causes) and from TOOTH EROSION (the loss of substance caused by chemical action without bacterial action). (Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p86)
The upper part of the tooth, which joins the lower part of the tooth (TOOTH ROOT) at the cervix (TOOTH CERVIX) at a line called the cementoenamel junction. The entire surface of the crown is covered with enamel which is thicker at the extremity and becomes progressively thinner toward the cervix. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p216)
A fabricated tooth substituting for a natural tooth in a prosthesis. It is usually made of porcelain or plastic.
The constricted part of the tooth at the junction of the crown and root or roots. It is often referred to as the cementoenamel junction (CEJ), the line at which the cementum covering the root of a tooth and the enamel of the tooth meet. (Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p530, p433)
The purpose of this study is to determine if aspirin is associated with bleeding complications following a single tooth extraction
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the implant stability at the time of abutment placement on implants placed in healed extraction sockets treated with Straumann BoneCerami...
The purpose of this study is to determine if the HemCon Dental Dressing is effective in stopping bleeding during dental surgeries in patients taking anticoagulant medications.
The main objective of the investigators' study is to assess the efficacy of a course of treatment using skeletal anchorage (MINISCREW) as compared with treatment involving dental anchorage...
The purpose of this study is to compare a new biomaterial with an already existing treatment principle (Bio-Oss/Bio-Gide) with regard to their ability to preserve the dimensions of the alv...
Objective: Trauma during dental surgery is a predisposing factor for bisphosphonates (BP)-related osteonecrosis of the jaws (BRONJ). However, about 40% of cases of BRONJ are not related to dental inva...
Objective: To assess the clinical features of exodontias performed in cancer patients who have been receiving intravenous bisphosphonates (BPs). Study Design: This is a retrospective cohort study usin...
In order to avoid extracting the wrong tooth, not only should there be clear communication with the referring colleague, but the patient must be told which tooth is to be extracted.
Abstract Objective. The aim of this study was to determine and classify the major reasons for extraction of teeth with full crowns belonging to patients admitted to a university clinic within a specif...
