Self-tapping and self-condensing implants Radix-Balance and Radix-Oston have the same thread design. The difference is that Radix-Balance has smooth neck, while the neck of Radix-Oston has thread and microtexturing. Today the use of rough and microtextured threads implants is very popular, as it was proved, that these implants have less marginal bone resorption. Nevertheless it still exists and in the first year can vary from 0,4 to 0,6 mm. Bone resorption predetermines the concretion of bacterial plaque on the rough neck of implant and increase risk of peri-implantitis. Therefore we produce our new implants in two variants – with microtextured and with smooth neck.
The resorption on the smooth neck is always higher and can reach up to 1,0 mm. But the smooth surface of the neck prevents the development of bacterial infection.
Smooth neck of Radix-Balance implants is anodized into a pink color. The pink color is caused by the increase of titanium oxide layer into 2-5nm. So, it is only titanium on the surface – no another substances. Pink color of implant neck is as close to the color of mucosa as possible. It allows to avoid the grey shade on mucosa that reflect the implant of usual grey color.
Progressive Thread Profile
Deeper thread in the lower part of implant facilitates the condensation of spongy bone. It is very important to achieve a reliable osseous integration in the spongiosa- as this is the foundation for the success in implantology.
The anatomical shape of the implant together with the progressive thread determines excellent primary fixation due to the progressive condensation of the bone.
Retaining cone with a retaining angle of 50 degrees provides close contact between the implant and the abutment and prevents the effect of micropump of tissue fluid and resorption of a bone edge.
Twinthread neck design
Double thread improves the load distribution in the cortical layer.
Platform switching is a method used to preserve alveolar bone levels around dental implants. The concept refers to placing restorative abutments of narrower diameter on implants of wider diameter. (уже было)
In Implants Radix-Balance and Radix-Oston we implemented the effect of platforms switch for the implant diameter 4.2 and 5.0 mm. This effect is increased by chamfer on the butt of implant.
Double thread allows to fix an implant rapidly for a smaller number of turns.
