Clinical Trial Summary

Randomized, outcome assessor and data analyst blinded, single center trial with four parallel arms and a 1:1:1:1 allocation ratio, with the aim of comparing which combination of bilaminar technique (split vs. full thickness flap) and graft type (autogenous or xenogeneic) provides better clinical, aesthetic, morphological, vascular and patients related outcomes, when augmenting the buccal peri-implant mucosa at the reopening of submerged implant fixtures


Clinical Trial Description

This randomized four parallel arms controlled clinical trial with blinded outcome assessment and data analysis aims to establish which combination of bilaminar technique (split vs. full thickness flap) and graft type (autogenous subepithelial connective tissue graft vs. volume stable collagen matrix) provides better clinical, aesthetic, morphological, vascular and patients related outcomes, when augmenting the buccal peri-implant mucosa at the reopening of submerged implant fixtures. The primary outcome is the gain in soft tissue thickness (standardised measurement at baseline, after surgery, at 1m and 6m). Secondary outcomes include changes in tissue volume (intraoral scans at baseline, post-op, 14d, 1m, 6m), RAL and KTW (clinical measurements at baseline, 1m, 6m), tissue color integration (∆E at 1m and 6m), and PROMS (7d, 14d, 30d). Exploratory outcomes include tissue morphology (histology at 1m,2m,4m,6m), microcirculation (Doppler flowmetry at pre-op, 7d, 14d, 1m) and revascularization (IHC at 1m,2m,4m,6m). A figure of 10 subjects per group was obtained for a 0,3mm difference in tissue thickness increase (SD 0,23mm), using 80% power, alpha 0.05, and a 10% drop-out rate. Patients will be randomly allocated to four groups: test (STF+VCM), control 1 (FTF+VCM), control 2 (SFT+CTG), control 3 (FTF+CTG). Patients will be the unit of analysis and ANOVA (normality) or Kruskall-Wallis (no normality) tests will be performed setting the significance level at p < 0.05. ;
