The Implanova® Subcrestal implant system boasts a cutting-edge implant design that simplifies dental implant placement and restoration, as well as overcomes the shortcomings of existing implant systems. This design was conceptualized using various legacy implant system and developed meticulously utilizing CAD/CAM modeling and unprecedented 3D printing. The Implanova® implant system was designed to be easily adaptable by the experienced clinician, as well as effortless to learn by a new practitioner. More importantly, they are easy on patients in terms of surgical trauma and speed of healing. The Implanova® implant system is extremely intuitive and was intentionally simplified so that stock can be easily maintained by the practitioner. Implanova® implants feature a self-osteomizing and self-grafting body that is spotlighted when being placed surgically in the mouth. The apical 5 mm of most implant sizes are left machine finished, to retain its sharp cutting edges. With aggressive macrothreads and triple cutting blades on each helix, the implant creates its own osteotomy by shaving the surrounding bone as it is being placed for a perfect fit without any pressure or gaps. The self-grafting design is attributed to a smart “bone management” system, where reverse vertical flutes are present to guide bone shavings and debris apically along the body of the implant, which condenses around the apex of the implant for primary stability. The apex itself, however, is left non-cutting so as to safeguard critical anatomical landmarks. These features allow for high insertion torque, up to 70 N-cm, which indicates the implant is stable enough for immediate loading.
While apical portions of the implants are left machine finished depending on the implant length, the rest of the implants are blast finished using resorbable apatitic calcium phosphate blasting media and is therefore roughened to a surface texture of 1.5 micron Ra minimum. Among the blasted portion are synchronous, progressive microthreads designed for smooth seating and sealing of cortical bone. Internal features of the implant include a universal double star attachment type and a conical Morse taper that ensures tight sealing with Implanova restorative components compatibility with Astra Tech™ Aqua components. The variable space between the widest portion of the implant and the implant mouth also allows for maximum platform switching to fit any type of prosthesis presented. Implanova® implants are available in 3 diameters – Narrow (3.5mm), Standard (4.5mm), and Long (5.5mm) – and are selected based on the available space between the two adjacent teeth and the type of prosthesis to be used. For each select implant diameter, there are as many as 5 different lengths available – XShort (6mm), Short (8mm), Medium (10mm), Long (12mm), and XLong (14mm). Implanova® implants can be placed either at the crestal level, subcrestal level (1mm below), or way subcrestal (2mm below) as needed to allow for bone tissue to grow and envelop the implant collar during the healing stage of the operation. With the implant collar completely enveloped and secured by the newly formed crestal bone, the stability of the implant fixture will be further improved. All Implanova® implants are cross-compatible with all prosthetic parts, including abutments and healing caps.
The material constituent of Implanova® implants is grade 23 titanium alloy (Ti-6Al-4V ELI) per ASTM F136 standards. All implants are gamma radiation sterilized and have a 5 year shelf life. Implanova® implants help dentists provide patients with exceptional care by providing highly sophisticated designs and solutions. The system is sophisticated, yet is very easy to learn, very simple to place & restore, and very effortless to keep stock of. A new implant practitioner can learn and use this system with ease, as well as affordably adopt this system as a part of their services. A veteran implantologist will find this system to be very versatile and logical. The Implanova® implant system truly offers refreshing innovation and simplicity amid an established industry with longstanding legacy systems.
