Awards & highlights


"This trial will compare two different treatments for preserving the bone in the back of the mouth after a tooth extraction. One treatment uses OsteoGen® Plug and the other uses Freeze-dried Bone Al

Who is the study for?
This trial is for individuals who need their wisdom teeth removed and have a healthy outer wall of the socket. It's not suitable for those with certain health conditions or habits that could affect bone healing.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study compares two methods of preserving jawbone after wisdom tooth removal: OsteoGen Plug (a synthetic material) versus freeze-dried bone graft with a collagen barrier.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Possible side effects may include discomfort, swelling, infection at the extraction site, and reactions to materials used in either method.

Trial Design

2Treatment groups
Experimental Treatment
Active Control
Group I: OsteoGen PlugExperimental Treatment1 Intervention
OsteoGen® Plug (OGP) is a combination of bovine achilles tendon collagen matrix sourced from Australia or New Zealand and bioactive resorbable calcium apatite crystals intended for ARP. It is provided to clinicians in 3 different sizes to be placed in extraction socket.
