Tapered * Screw-Retained * Internal Connection * 100% metal-free
HIGH PRIMARY STABILITY
The thread design and
cylindrical-conical implant shape
achieve high primary stability.
The reservoir for bone grafs at the
tip of the implant simplifes implant
The special geometry with the four tips enables high precision and fast and easy insertion and alignment of the abutment. The slightly beveled contact surface of the implant platform is designed to facilitate centering of the prosthetic components.
REDUCED DIAMETER VICARBO SCREW
One screw for two diameters. The XT Vicarbo Screw head diameter is a reduced 2.8mm. Length is 7.4mm and Tightening torque of 25Ncm.
ZERADRILL™ Biocompatible reusable drills with
carbon coating. Precision designed for exacting geometry of the unique tapered shape.
The heart of the connection is the VICARBO® screw.
It works like a bolt, which anchors the abutment in the implant. The extremely hard ceramic is combined with a very stiff, carbon fibre-reinforced high-performance peek. In a way similar to reinforced concrete, the ceramic absorbs the compressive forces, while the VICARBO® screw counteracts tensile forces.
The ZERAFIL™ surface is a micro-structured implant surface that enables decisive osseointegration of the dental implants.
The success rate of ZERAMEX® ceramic implants with a ZERAFIL™ surface is between 96.7 and 98.5 percent, depending on the system, and bears witness to the decisive osseointegration thanks to the optimum surface structure. The hydrophilic implant surface ZERAFIL™ is sandblasted and etched so that osteoblasts can grow directly up to the dental implant and firm adhesion to the implant surface is achieved.
The 100-percent metal-free ceramic implants closely approximate the natural tooth root in terms of aesthetics and function. They are well tolerated, are completely free of metallic corrosion, and conduct neither electricity nor heat. Titanium can release titanium ions, which accumulate in the surrounding soft tissue and can cause infammation. Likewise, titanium’s resistance to corrosion can decrease due to surface bacteria. The use of metal-free ceramic implants precludes these effects.
