IMTEC ENDURE is a biomechanically engineered internal hex implant.
The simplicity of the ENDURE system offers clinical advantages to the clinician and patient with the following features:
Unique Triple Micro Threading
Enhanced Surface Treatment
Mount Free Concept
Simplified Surgical Prosthetic Protocols
The ENDURE Implant System is a simple, one-stage internal hex implant system. This grade IV CP
titanium implant is extremely cost effective and utilizes a simplified protocol that can be used for a variety of long term applications.
The ENDURE implant offers a mount free design that allows the doctor to move directly from packaging to placement. This implant can be used to restore areas where there were natur
al teeth that were similar in anatomical shape and size. The diameter of the ENDURE implants range from 3.5mm to 4.3mm, with lengths of insertion into the bone to be approximately
8mm to 14mm in depth.
The ENDURE implants are individually serialized and have a tapered collar with a unique triple micro threading feature. The implant utilizes a self-tapping compressive insertion f
or placement and has an enhanced surface treatment that increases surface area and aids in osseointegration.
Uses TiUnite (introduced in 1999) is a biomaterial which, actively participates in its integration with human bone.
This enhanced surface has been proven to interact with the biological environment and dramatically promote osseointegration.
Studies show that the structure of soft tissue around TiUnite implants resembles that around natural teeth; namely an attachment of the junctional epithelium to the implant surface and firm adherence of the underlying connective tissue.
The new NanoTite Implant is a modified hybrid implant where coverage of both the OSSEOTITE Surface and the nanoscale crystals go to the base of the collar. With the
same features as the OSSEOTITE Implant, preclinical studies have shown that this implant results in a greater rate and extent of osseointegration at earlier time points
when compared to the OSSEOTITE Implant.
Oraltronics Dental Implants
PITT-EASY The Versatile
The Original of cylindrical screw implants, combining the experiences of a complete generation. Unique is the patented selftapping expansion thread system. The concept of the internal hex post connection is unsurpassed.
BICORTICAL-Implant The Perfect
With the unique Bicortical screw implant an optimal solution can be achieved with ease. Selftapping, bicortical support and made of pure titanium, the implant offers ideal variations for an uncomplicated, safe and immediate application after extraction.
ENDOPORE the Unique
The application of the Endopore implants with very short implants lengths (starting from 5 mm) offers increased surgical options especially for shallow alveolar bone.
With Endopore, it is often possible to avoid sinus lifts or other augmentation procedures in the maxilla and mandible.
UNITI implant system can be used in a single or two-stage surgical protocol. The anatomic root shape insures that the implant performs as predictably in extraction sockets as
does in mature bone sites. The synchronized Kompress thread and microgrip surface facilitate an immediate loading solution in specific indications. The Sekure implant abutment interface on the Uniti implant is a unique biophysical twin internal hex connection.
Dental Implants FAQ
What is a dental implant and why
is it necessary?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth
root replacement and is used in prosthetic dentistry. Implants can provide
people with dental replacements that are both functional and aesthetic.
A dental implant involves a titanium screw that is placed into the jaw
bone. It acts as an anchor for a false tooth or a set of false teeth.
Implants can provide people with dental
replacements that are both functional and esthetic. After a dental implant
restoration is perfectly constructed, neither the patient nor anyone
else should have any hint that an implant is there.
Who is a candidate for dental implants?
Anyone in reasonable health who wants
to replace missing teeth is a candidate for dental implants. You must
have enough bone in the area of the missing teeth to provide for the
anchorage of the implants. If you do not have enough bone to support
a dental implant, bone grafts can be placed. Implants are used to replace
small bridges, removable partial dentures and even missing single teeth.
Details of the procedure
What happens during the dental
implant procedure, and how is it performed?
A typical implant consists of a titanium
screw, with a roughened surface. This surface is treated either by plasma
spraying, etching or sandblasting to increase the integration potential
of the implant. At edentulous (without teeth) jaw sites, a pilot hole
is bored into the recipient bone, taking care to avoid vital structures
(in particular the inferior alveolar nerve within the mandible).
This pilot hole is then expanded by using
progressively wider drills. Care is taken not to damage the osteoblast
cells by overheating. A cooling saline spray keeps the temperature of
the bone to below 117 degrees Fahrenheit (approx) or 47 degrees Celsius.
The implant screw can be self-tapping, and is screwed into place at
a precise torque so as not to overload the surrounding bone. Once in
the bone, a cover screw is placed and the operation site is allowed
to heal for a few months for integration to occur.
After some months the implant is uncovered
and a healing abutment and temporary crown is placed onto the implant.
This encourages the gum to grow in the right scalloped shape to approximate
a natural tooth's gums and allows assessment of the final aesthetics
of the restored tooth. Once this has occurred a permanent crown will
be constructed and placed on the implant.
What type of anesthesia will be
A dental implant is surgically placed
under local anesthesia causing the procedure to be generally not at
How long after a dental implant
is placed can it be used to anchor my new teeth?
In earlier days, the waiting time was
three months in the lower jaw and six months in the upper jaw before
beginning to construct the new dental prosthesis that is supported by
In recent years, an increasingly common
strategy to preserve bone and reduce treatment times includes the placement
of a dental implant into a recent extraction site. In addition, immediate
loading is becoming more common as success rates for this procedure
are now acceptable. This can cut months off the treatment time and in
some cases a prosthetic tooth can be attached to the implants at the
same time as the surgery to place the dental implants.
What precautions will I need to
take after the procedure?
Dental implants are not susceptible to
dental caries but they can develop a periodontal condition called peri-implantitis
where correct oral hygiene routines have not been followed. Risk of
failure is increased in smokers. For this reason implants are frequently
placed only after a patient has stopped smoking as the treatment is
What are the risks/complications
associated with dental implants?
Although there are not many things that
can go wrong with dental implants, some of the problems could be:
Failure to integrate into
the bone resulting into the falling out of the implant.
A fracture or breaking of
Problems with the connection
between the implant and the prosthesis.
An infection or an inflammatory
condition in the soft tissue and sometimes in the bone as a result of
the implant placement.
Damage to the nerves in the
lower jaw and to the maxillary sinus or the nasal cavity.
All of these complications are rare and
can usually be easily corrected.
Does it hurt after the dental implants
have been placed?
Some discomfort may occur once the effect
of the anesthesia wears off about three or four hours after the procedure.
Most patients do not have significant problems although the level of
discomfort varies from patient to patient. Some patients do have varying
degrees of pain or discomfort which may last for several days. Swelling
and black and bluing may also develop.
What should I watch out for?
You should call upon your dentist when
there is prolonged pain as this is not a good sign with dental implants.
Having prolonged pain does not always mean failure but the cause of
the pain should be determined as soon as possible.
The implant may have to be removed if
an infection develops or if the implant is not properly integrating
into the adjacent bone.
What happens if my dental implants
In occasional cases when the dental implants
fail or are rejected, they can be replaced with another implant, usually
of a slightly larger size. The rate of failure is only about 1-5%. This
might be somewhat higher in smokers and people with compromised immune
systems. The key element to determining implant success is proper diagnosis
and treatment planning.
