It is the implant that best fits almost all edentulism cases, even the case of thin, low, hollow bone for ample maxillary sinuses. It is an implant that could be shown to be universal in application.
- Goes around the jawbone crest and not into it, therefore the bone is not pierced and does keep its own integrity
- Is anchored to the external cortical bone that is more solid than the internal medullary bone.
- Comes from a titanium-melting process on to the stereolithographic model of the bone as by the CAT.
- Is the only implant to be tested on to the model prior to its application in the mouth so as to assess its stability.
- Being applied astride the jawbone crest, it is able to withstand force or stress without being dislodged or damaged.
- The two bars of the implant opposite to each other behave the same way as the roots of molars wide apart.
- A test on to the model obtained prior to its application inside the mouth makes surgery simple and fast as the doctor has already tested the positioning on to the model.
- Post op pain – if there is any – is quite slight.
- Is made usable as soon as it is applied to.
- Over the last 50 years thousands of these implants were put in place by dental teams all over the world relying on high-tech equipment specially dedicated to titanium melting process.
The jawbone crests of an edentulous mouth feature different sizes: high, wide, low and thin. The cases above can be solved fast by fixed dentures and two types of implants: screws and twin implant made from titanium. The screws are placed into the high and wide bone, The subperiosteal implant is placed around the low or thin bone
