Composite plug vs d-PTFE

Details and patient eligibility

About

The aim of the current study is to compare the effect socket sealing with flowable resin composite compared to dense polytetrafluoroethylene membrane after filling the extraction site with xenograft particles in terms of soft and hard tissue changes, procedural time, post operative pain, patients' satisfaction, and cost effectiveness.

Full description

Implant placement has become the gold standard for replacing missing teeth. One of the biggest challenges present when placing implants is the lack of sufficient bone dimensions. This deficiency may be a common finding due to the process of post extraction remodeling where both bone height and width are reduced, complicating implant placement. As a result, several procedures have been suggested to address this issue. Socket preservation is one of the most implemented procedures used today to limit the amount of bone lost during post extraction remodeling. The current study was designed to compare the effectiveness of using flowable composite resin for socket sealing as an alternative to using d-PTFE membranes, bypassing the added time, cost and trauma needed for tunnel preparation and membrane tucking.

20 participants in 2 patient groups

Composite plug
Experimental group
Description:
Tooth extraction will be done a-traumatically followed by socket curettage and cleaning followed by xenograft filling for the socket and coverage with injected flowable composite plug which will then be stabilized using 5.0 polypropylene suture material with a figure of eight suture.
Treatment:
Procedure: Socket preservation using xenograft and composite plug
Exposed d-PTFE
Active Comparator group
Description:
Tooth extraction will be done a-traumatically followed by socket curettage and cleaning followed by xenograft filling for the socket and coverage with d-PTFE membrane which will be left exposed intentionally and secured using 5.0 polypropylene suture material with a figure of eight suture.
Treatment:
Procedure: Socket preservation using xenograft and intentionally exposed d-PTFE
