According to the American College of Prosthodontists (ACP),1 178 million people in the United States are missing at least one tooth. Single-crown placement is the most common restorative procedure, and yet only approximately 2.3 million implant-supported crowns are made annually.

ACP also reports, "Edentulism affects our most vulnerable populations–the aging and the economically disadvantaged. Consequences of missing teeth include significant nutritional changes, obesity, diabetes, coronary artery disease and some forms of cancer."

While narrow-body implants are not meant to replace your current implant system, research and documentation show that when used appropriately, they offer a viable solution to patients who are otherwise left to suffer the consequences of edentulism.

Dentatus ANEW Narrow Body Implants can help you treat more patients. Due to their minimally invasive diameter, procedure times are reduced and supplemental procedures such as bone grafting may be foregone, ultimately reducing overall treatment fees. This makes implantology accessible to millions more patients.

With changes in the health care environment calling for more affordable treatment options,2 now is the time to incorporate narrow-body implants from Dentatus into your armamentarium.

Dentatus ANEW is the only narrow body implant with a screw-retained prosthetic system with more than 10 years of clinical research to support safe and reliable long-term use.

Dentatus ANEW Implants are quickly becoming the implant of choice for your narrow-diameter needs. Available in 1.8-, 2.2- and 2.4-mm diameters, they are ideal for use in areas of limited bone width, mesial-distal space, or converging roots.

Learn how you can treat more patients with Dentatus ANEW at First Fridays, a monthly hands-on workshop at our implant center in New York City.

Dentatus ANEW Features:

• Abutment variety: For bridges, single crowns,or overdentures

• Box platform:Provides a mechanicalanti-rotational feature

• Low profile: 3.5-mm head accommodates divergent angles

• Screw-retained restorations: Immediately loaded and easily disassembled without tapping, preventing macromovement

• Strong Grade V titanium alloy, texturized thread: Increases surface area, improving osseointegration

What the Research Says

• "This retrospective report followed 48 NDIs (Dentatus ANEW) in 27 patients for 1 to 5 years post loading. No implant failures were reported yielding a 100% survival rate."

Froum SJ, Cho SC, Cho YS, et al. Narrow diameter implants: A restorative option for limited interdental space. Int J Periodontics Restorative Dent. 2007;27(5):449-455.

• "Anew NDIs had a survival rate comparable to standard-diameter implants. ANEW NDIs displayed an annual bone loss comparable to standard-diameter implants. All Anew NDIs achieved favorable esthetic results. In cases of limited space, NDIs offer an implant option with the advantages common to standard-implant resorations."
