The proven self-tapping thread design of the cylindrical S-Line implants has been reengineered in the thread course and the cutting groove taking the existing preparation instruments into account and optimises the micro-threads on the implant head in the SC/SCX-implants. The machined shoulder of the new SC implant enables it to connect seamlessly with the known BEGO Semados® S, RI and RS implant lines. The surface of the machined shoulder in this case has a micro-roughness comparable to that of natural tooth enamel (Ra ≈ 0.4). The SCX implant has a structured shoulder and responds to the individual needs of the patient treatment and the preferences of the practitioner. “The new implants are available in the familiar S-Line diameters and lengths and are suitable for almost all indications in dental implantology. The product line is extended with an implant diameter of 5.5 mm at a length of 7 mm to meet the demand for short and thick implants,” says Walter Esinger, CEO of BEGO Implant Systems.
Both lines are prepared with the same surgical tray as the current S implants. The new systems feature an indentation on the implant shoulder surface (so-called platform switch), allowing S-Line customers to take advantage of the platform switch prosthetics (PS-Line) with the new implants from the IDS 2017. Individual treatments made of different materials can as usual be sourced via the CAD/CAM-based production by BEGO Medical.
Distribution of the new implants of the BEGO Semados® S-Line, the SC and SCX implants, will start from the 36th IDS (International Dental Show) in Cologne (21 to 25 March 2017). The launch onto the various key markets depends on how long registration will take.
