BioHorizons Tapered PTG implants support full-arch treatment in severely resorbed maxillae and provide an alternative to grafting, potentially expediting treatment.1
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:
Control cellular migration - control esthetic outcomes
Only the Laser-Lok surface has been shown using light microscopy, polarized light microscopy and scanning electron microscopy to also be effective for soft tissue attachment. 3,4
"There is no other implant that shows functional orientation of fibers. There is not one. This is the only one. This is so important." 5
