BioHorizons Tapered PTG implants support full-arch treatment in severely resorbed maxillae and provide an alternative to grafting, potentially expediting treatment.
Developed in a 4.2mm diameter with 15 and 18mm lengths, the implants feature a unique, dual-tapered body with aggressive buttress threads, suitable for engagement during angled placement in the posterior maxilla. This approach maximizes AP spread for full arch restorations, while maintaining high implant stability.
Design features include:
- Dual tapered body and aggressive threads provide stability in the pterygomaxillary region. - Reduced apical diameter allows for precise placement of the implant apex. - Unique Laser-Lok microchannels create connective tissue attachment and retain crestal bone osteotomy matched collar preserves vital bone.
