a Randomized Clinical Trial Evaluating Plaque Removal Around Dental Implants
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Treatments||dental interproximal brush, dental floss|
|Sponsor||University of Manitoba|
|Start date||May 2014|
|End date||May 2016|
|Trial size||32 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT02091609, H2013:458|
This aim of this study is to compare different oral hygiene aids for the ability to remove plaque in patients who went through dental implant treatment and are currently on a maintenance program at the Graduate Periodontal Clinic, at the University of Manitoba, Faculty of Dentistry.
|Endpoint classification||safety/efficacy study|
|Intervention model||parallel assignment|
|Masking||single blind (investigator)|
dental interproximal brush
time frame: one year
Male or female participants at least 18 years old.
Inclusion Criteria: - Non smokers, with clinical probing depth around implants is less than or equal to 6mm and are currently maintained every 3 months at the graduate periodontal program Exclusion Criteria: - Smokers - Probing Depth 6 or > 6mm - Non compliant patients and patients with severe systemic conditions
|Official title||Evaluation of Plaque Removal Using Different Plaque Control Therapies Around Single Crown Dental Implants and Splinted Implant Crowns in Patients Under 3 Months Maintenance;a Randomized Clinical Trial|

|Description||Home care and Oral hygiene regimes are as well an important aspect of short and long term dental implant survival and success. The investigators profession demands us to educate the patients about the risk of peri implantitis and peri mucositis in plaque infected dentitions. In periodontal patients the areas of most ineffective plaque removal are typically the palatal/lingual and interdental areas. there is therefore a need to developing scientific evidence to form a framework for professionals to follow when educating patients about their home care.|
