Study Summary

This trial will compare the effects of using customized CAD/CAM healing abutments vs. standard healing abutments on dental implant success, patient satisfaction, and peri-implant health.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for adults over 18 who are missing a molar tooth that can be replaced with an implant, have adjacent teeth on both sides, and enough bone volume without needing extra grafting. It's not for those with less than 3mm of gum tissue at the site, drug or heavy alcohol use, uncontrolled diabetes, recent chemotherapy or radiation in head/neck area, pregnant women, or heavy smokers.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests if customized CAD/CAM healing abutments improve soft and hard tissue stability around dental implants compared to standard ones. Participants will receive either the custom-made or standard abutment randomly and will be monitored for six months after getting their implant crowns.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
While specific side effects aren't listed for this type of dental procedure in the provided information, common issues might include discomfort at the implant site, swelling, bruising of gums/skin around the implant area and potential minor bleeding post-procedure.
