Improvement in the initial ISQ through use of a modified surgical technique
Through Use of a Modified Surgical Technique
The ELEMENT is Thommen Medical's most widely used implant style as it unites a simple drill protocol with the corresponding flexibility of a parallel-walled implant: intraoperative adjustments in the vertical position as well as adjustments to the local bone quality are possible at any time without making complicated changes to the drill protocol.
The three different collar heights not only make optimum soft tissue management possible, but also make the implementation of differentiated treatment protocols easier:
The ELEMENT MC features a minimized collar height of 0.5 mm, and extended endosseous surface for optimal osseointegration. It is specifically indicated for clinical cases requiring implant placement at the bone crest, and achieves excellent esthetics, especially in the anterior region.
The ELEMENT RC, Thommen’s standard implant, has a regular collar height of 1.0 mm. It allows for adequate distance between the implant shoulder and bone to allow for biological structures to be respected. Naturally esthetic results can easily be achieved.
The ELEMENT LC is specially indicated for cases involving hybrid-prosthetic restorations. It features a long collar height of 2.5 mm for a supracrestal shoulder, which is ideal for supragingival indications.
The tapered endosseous profile of the CONTACT implant expands toward the crest of the jawbone, fitting and supporting the contour of the alveolar ridge in extraction sockets. By allowing for the selection of a larger platform diameter, the CONTACT implant offers improved stability when the site is narrow due to special anatomical considerations, such as a narrow ridge and/or converging roots.
The CONTACT MC features a minimized collar height of 0.5 mm, and extended endosseous surface for optimal osseointegration. It is specifically indicated for clinical cases requiring implant placement at the bone crest, and achieves excellent esthetics, especially in the anterior region.
The CONTACT RC with a regular collar height of 1.5 mm. In most cases, it allows for adequate distance between the implant shoulder and bone to allow for biological structures to be respected. Naturally esthetic results can easily be achieved.
Occasionally, small diameter implants are necessary for certain indications where patients have narrow interdental spaces, congenital missing lateral incisors or small alveolar ridges.
Thommen offers the ideal solution for such situations with the ELEMENT PF 3.0* such as ELEMENT PF 3.5 and CONTACT PF 3.5.
For indications and contra indications regarding small diameter implants, please see the relevant instruction for use.
Replacing the lateral incisors in the maxilla or the central and lateral incisors in the mandible is a challenge due to limited space.
Thommen Medical now offers a solution to this problem with the development of the implant system 3.0. The Thommen 3.0 implant system comprises the diameter-reduced implant ELEMENT PF 3.0, the VARIOunite abutment PF 3.0 (used as temporary filling or final restoration) and the associated instruments. The apical diameter of the ELEMENT PF 3.0 is also narrow in design.
*Please see the corresponding “instructions for use” for indications, clinical uses and general contraindications for the Thommen 3.0 implant system.
Along with the ELEMENT PF 3.0, Thommen also offers the ELEMENT and CONTACT PF 3.5.
The superhydrophilic surface INICELL® provides increased stability in the early healing phase.
Diameter 3.5 platform implants
Contraindications for the use of ELEMENT implants Ø 3.5 mm: Applications in areas where implants are subjected to large bending moments (e. g. use of single-implants for the restoration of canines). Please read the instructions for use.
