Longterm Success with Implants #4 - The proper recall: What happens without recall? What has to be done to keep everything stable?
Quintessencial Tuesday with Dr. Chris
One comprehensive implant system, based on a unique, proven design, optimized over three decades of clinical success with the MULTIGUARD Protection Solution. A combination of innovative features working together to protect implant integrity by maintaining mechanical stability and an optimal bio-response for the life of the patient.
Faster osseointegration is promoted by the implant surface INICELL® which is the superhydrophilic state of the proven sandblasted and acid etched Thommen implant surface. INICELL® is generated in a few seconds with the chairside conditioning system APLIQUIQ®. The conditioning agent applied with APLIQUIQ® has an antimicrobial effect which reduces the risk of infection in the early healing phase. The implant bed preparation with the VECTOdrillsTM, in combination with the Thommen implant thread profile, creates the optimal condition for fast and reliable osseointegration.
The EVERGUARD® Connection, with an internal hex and external stabilization ring, ensures optimal long-term stability of the implant abutment connection. The connection design includes a vertical stop for consistent abutment position and preservation of the abutment screw’s preload to avoid screw loosening. The clever design of the reduced size abutment screw enables thicker implant and abutment walls and protects implant integrity. The reduced screw access channel allows for improved restorative flexibility and aesthetics.
The TISSUEGUARD® Collar encourages soft tissue adaptation to prevent bone loss and allows for surgical flexibility to place the machined collar into the bone depending on the clinical need. The machined surface of the collar is optimal for soft tissue and is cleansable, which improves hygienic maintenance to reduce the risk of biologic complications, including peri-implantitis. Supports optimal placement of the implant/abutment junction allowing for restorative flexibility and easy impression taking. Smooth transition between implant and abutment leaves no void or ledge for bacteria and facilitates problem-free probing.
