The MAX tapered dental implant system is the first to allow for immediate placement into a multi-rooted molar extraction site.
A conventional implant is not suited for immediate placement in the molar extraction socket. As a result, waiting periods of three to four months are necessary to allow for healing of the socket prior to implant placement. Often, the healed extraction site presents reduced bone height, inadequate for implant placement without a bone augmentation procedure.
The award-winning MAX dental implant systems feature a body with a larger-than-conventional diameter to fill the molar site, ultimately achieving primary stability from engagement with the perimeter bony wall. With tapered dental implant bodies and an enhanced surface, the MAX tapered dental implant is designed to fit the natural shape of the molar socket. The end result is an optimal implant fit in the multi-rooted immediate extraction site that minimizes bone loss and reduces treatment time.
Co-Axis™ is the first threaded dental implant with an angled prosthetic platform correction. This innovative design from Southern Implants allows oral surgeons and other dental professionals to utilize existing bone while maintaining the restorative platform at an angle that ensures an optimal esthetic result.
The anatomic limitations of the anterior maxilla often require either tilting of the implant or a grafting procedure. This is also true when vital structures such as the maxillary sinus or the mental foramen limit accessibility. The resulting implant angulation often necessitates a severe angle correction at the prosthetic level. This can lead to potential esthetic and/or soft tissue complications.
The Osseointegrated Fixtures system extends the use of osseointegrating implants from dental only applications, to the attachment of prosthetics outside the oral region. Osseointegrated Fixtures have been developed to enable the attachment of external aesthetic restoration prostheses when suction or adhesives are inadequate. This has been found to be useful for both craniofacial prostheses and prosthetic digits on the hand.
Usual means of attaching external aesthetic prosthetics include adhesives, mechanical (attached to spectacles) and suction (fitting sockets). Sometimes the remaining anatomy or the patient’s lifestyle means that these means of attachment simply cannot provide adequate retention and the prosthesis is prone to falling off, exposing the patient to significant embarrassment. In these cases an implant may be indicated to provide retention of the prosthesis.
