Implant Direct

At Implant Direct, we combine our implant expertise and state-of-the art manufacturing technology to create compatible solutions with enhanced features that are made to exacting tolerances. The efficiency of our processes means we can maintain consistent, fair prices free from negotiation. We even went one step further by creating All-in-1 Packaging to help you curtail chairside surprises and track your true treatment costs. Now we have expanded our Straumann®-compatible* system to bring you more options in our portfolio of innovative, compatible solutions.

The Swish™ Implant System now offers the simplicity of one surgical tray and one price at any level. All Swish implants are surgically compatible with the Straumann drills* and deliver All-in-1 Packaging with a transfer/carrier, cover screw and healing collar. The tissue-level SwishPlus and the versatile SwishTapered, which may be placed at either tissue or bone level, both feature an industry-standard internal octagon connection. The new bone-level SwishActive implant features platform-shifting and a conical hex connection.

*SwishPlus and SwishTapered are fully compatible with Straumann Tissue-Level implants, with some restrictions for 3.3-mm and 5.7-mm diameter options. SwishActive is surgically compatible with Straumann drills with the exception of profiling drills and Bone-Level Tapered drills.

All-in-1 Packaging

Swish™ implants offer the convenience of All-in-1 Packaging, which includes the implant, a transfer/carrier, cover screw, and healing collar.

Simplified Surgery

To simplify surgery, all Swish™ implants share drills and a surgical tray. In addition, each implant features self-tapping grooves to eliminate the need for bone-tapping, further reducing the complexity of the surgical protocol. The carrier, which is compatible with a number of tools, features circular indentations for the flats of the internal connection to facilitate proper orientation of the implant.

Greater Prosthetic Precision

With a conical hex connection, the new bone-level SwishActive implant provides six indexing positions (versus four in the competitor's design) for precise prosthetic placement. Matched transgingival profiles on a range of prosthetics also allow for consistent soft tissue management throughout treatment.

Breadth of Dimension & Prosthetic Choices

The Swish™ system includes a wide range of options with diameters ranging from 3.3 mm to 5.7 mm, and lengths ranging from a short 6 mm to a 16 mm. In addition, there is an expansive range of both stock and custom prosthetics to meet the scope of your clinical needs.
