Biomet 3i has answered the increasing patient demands on dental implant designs and performance with the introduction of the new OSSEOTITE® 2 Parallel Walled Implant. The new OSSEOTITE 2 Parallel Walled Implant is based on macrogeometric design enhancements of the legacy OSSEOTITE® and is designed for more Immediate Bone-to-Implant Contact (IBIC) for achieving better primary stability. OSSEOTITE 2 has a longer parallel walled section for more direct implant body contact with the osteotomy walls.
The shorter apical taper and cutting flutes provide more apical stability, while the long and narrow thread profile for the 5-mm and 6-mm implants generates an anchoring “bite-in-bone” engagement. This helps to reduce the risk of excessive micromovement early in the healing process. In addition, a clinical evaluation indicates at least 98% success rates.
OSSEOTITE 2 Parallel Walled Implants are available in 3.25, 4.0, 5.0 and 6.0mm configurations and are manufactured from biocompatible commercially pure titanium. To facilitate a transition to the new design, existing OSSEOTITE Parallel Walled Prosthetic Components, Drilling Instrumentation and Guidelines remain compatible with OSSEOTITE 2 Implants with one exception; tapping with new Dense Bone Taps for 5.0 and 6.0-mm OSSEOTITE 2 Implants is required.
