Solving clinical challenges with new treatment solution from DENTSPLY Implants

June 4, 2015

Several clinical challenges are solved with the introduction of DENTSPLY Implants’ new treatment solution. Buccal and lingual marginal bone preservation in sloped ridge situations are enhanced with the new OsseoSpeed Profile EV implant design.

“When we develop new implant therapy solutions, it is important that they meet actual clinical needs. With these introductions, we can offer clinicians various solutions for compromised cases related to marginal bone,” says Björn Delin, DDS, and Vice President Global Platform Implant Systems at DENTSPLY Implants.

360-degree bone preservation in sloped ridge situations Marginal bone preservation is an important factor to achieve excellent esthetic results. However, it is a clinical reality that crestal bone resorbs after tooth extraction or tooth loss. This resorption is often pronounced on the buccal side, resulting in a lingual-to-buccal sloped ridge.

The new OsseoSpeed Profile EV implant is placed level with both buccal and lingual marginal bone, where the design supports the soft tissue by preserving marginal bone 360 degrees around the implant. In addition, it may reduce the need for bone augmentation.

This is the second generation of the uniquely shaped, patented implant specifically designed for sloped ridge situations that was first introduced in 2011. The implant is now upgraded with the simplicity and design principles of the ASTRA TECH Implant System EV and a welcome addition to the portfolio.
