OsseoSpeed Profile EV – A unique solution to a common clinical challenge
It is a well-known fact that the bone crest resorbs after tooth extraction or tooth loss. Studies have shown that remodeling is often more pronounced on the buccal than on the lingual side, resulting in a lingual-to-buccal sloped ridge.
Positioning an implant level with the lingual marginal bone leaves the implant neck exposed and the esthetic result is compromised. This situation may require complementary bone augmentation procedures.
Positioning an implant level with the buccal marginal bone means the unsupported lingual marginal bone is lost. The mesial and distal marginal bone levels, as well as soft tissue height, are compromised.
"The sloped design lets the implant adapt to the anatomy rather than letting the anatomy adapt to the implant design.“
Prof. Dr. Wilfried Wagner, University of Mainz, Germany
OsseoSpeed Profile EV is a unique* implant specifically designed to follow the existing bone in sloped ridge situations delivering 360° bone preservation. The design maintains soft tissue esthetics and can help reduce the need for bone augmentation.
ASTRA TECH Implant System BioManagement Complex
As a foundation of the ASTRA TECH Implant System EV, the unique combination of interdependent features in the ASTRA TECH Implant System BioManagement Complex ensures reliable, predictable and esthetic results both in the short and long term.
Being an integral part of the new ASTRA TECH Implant System EV, OsseoSpeed Profile EV is supported by this well-documented and unique BioManagement Complex.
OsseoSpeed Profile EV is available in straight and conical implant designs, and in lengths from 8–17 mm.
This innovative design provides a time-efficient installation procedure and a predictable workflow between the clinician and dental technician.
One-position-only placement of all indexed components makes the entire treatment procedure simple and predictable.
OsseoSpeed Profile implants are being evaluated in several ongoing studies sponsored by DENTSPLY Implants:
A significant increase in the width of keratinized mucosa in patients with compromised soft tissue has also been reported (see figure).
