A Strong, Esthetic Implant Solution for Narrow Anterior Sites
Thursday, October 20, 2016
Many studies have proven the survival rate of narrow diameter implants to be on par with those of wider diameter implants, making NDIs a promising treatment option
Primary stability is important for facilitating osseointegration of dental implants, therefore it is essential to ensure that NDIs have demonstrated sufficient primary stability
In a study of implant fatigue strength, these new NDIs achieved 43% higher fatigue strength compared to selected competitive implants of similar diameters
When searching for an aesthetic solution for narrow anterior sites, NDIs are the answer. Many studies have proven the survival rate to be on par with those of wider diameter implants, making NDIs a promising treatment option for situations in which large-diameter implants are contraindicated.
New implant designs have been designed to offer improvements over other available NDIs. For example, a conical, double friction-fit connection and platform switch have been combined to create a state-of-the-art connection. The 3 mm connection depth is designed to distribute stresses deeper into the implant and further away from crestal bone than conventional conical designs.
In addition, a microtextured surface offers increased bone apposition. This type of surface has been documented to achieve high levels of bone-to-implant contact and successful clinical results under conditions of immediate loading.
Finally, the implant offers restorative simplicity and stability through a variety of user-friendly restorative options to meet your—and your patient’s—prosthetic needs.
