Osstem Implant System-
Has got certifications like-
FDA - Approved by the FDA in U.S.A (Class-III) (Aug. 2002),
ISO 13485 for design and manufacture of dental implant,
CE 0434 Mark certified by DNV (Jan. 2001).
Osstem is the internationally named company which is used widely by implantologists (also known as hiossen in few countries.)
The new Osstem TSIII,GSII implant systems are new age implant has self-drilling capability.
.Internal hex-connected, submerged fixture
Harmony of macro thread and micro thread considering the cortical and cancellous
Dual thread design offers excellent initial bonding and long-term stability
RBM and SLA implant surfaces: Excellent bio-affinity of surface
Rigid motion with superstructure helps maintain stable connection
Straight body facilitates the adjustment of grafting depth
4-bladed cutting edge with excellent self-tapping force
A variety of diameters and lengths are available for various oral environments
Self Drilling.(self-drilling benifits- a surgeon who uses a self-drilling implant can drill a hole smaller than the size of the implant to be placed. As the implant is spun into the hole, it squeezes and compresses the bone by cutting into it with its own threads. This ensures a very solid fit into the hole in the bone.)
Implant surface treatment ,What is this all about?
There is a physiological aspect called integration. Physical retention will not work in the long term. We need bone cells to grow on the implant surface. This process is called osseointegration. Titanium by itself will promote ossointegration, but we need to improve the surface of the titanium in order to maximise osseointegration.
Osstem implants’ surfaces may be treated with Resorbable Blasted Material (RBM) or Sandblasted, Large-grit, Acid-etched (SLA). SLA increases the surface area for bone cells to adhere themselves .The process of RBM effectively roughens the surface of the implant, maximising the surface area for osseointegration. Implants treated this way typically integrate within 2-3 months. This means to say that the implant is left buried or slightly exposed for this period of time before the crown or bridge can be fabricated.
