Your teeth are an important part of your personal appearance and lifestyle. Your beautiful smile enhances your overall presence, and healthy teeth allow you to eat and speak with confidence.
Healthy teeth are not something to be taken for granted. Cavities, gum disease, and accidents are everyday occurrences that can lead to the loss of teeth. The loss of one tooth or several teeth can compromise your eating habits, speech, and appearance. In addition, when a tooth is lost, the bone that surrounds the tooth root can deteriorate affecting your appearance and bite.
Fortunately, now, our latest immediate “Speedy Groovy™” implants have offered a solution for not only immediately replacing your teeth. These new Dental implants provide a stable foundation for a tooth replacement that looks, feels, and functions like your natural teeth immediately. Recently, much has been done on placing implants, loading them almost immediately, and then delivering replacement teeth within a few DAYS!
Thanks to Groovy™ – our new and unique grooved threads implant. Since bone forms more rapidly in the grooves, the GroovyTM implants integrate faster than another implants and are indicated whenever immediate or early loading is applied. The Groovy implants are preferred over models without the groove in soft bone indications.
• Bone forms preferentially within the grooves, compared to other parts of the implant
• Enhanced osseoconductive properties of the grooves and a guiding effect on bone forming cells
• Up to 30% increase in stability from mechanical interlock created by bone formation within the groove
What’s new in Groovy™?
Grooves on all our implants
will now have the grooves on the threads of all our implants and on the collars, where appropriate.
Groovy on the collar too
With research showing that bone loves bonding with grooves, we have extended them to the collar of most new implants so they:
• Increase surface area
• Increase area for bone-to-implant contact
TiUnite is the most significant breakthrough in Osseointegration today.
The unique oxidized surface unites the biocompatibility of commercially pure titanium with an enhanced oxide surface and an optimized texture. TiUnite incorporates a multifaceted approach to influence the complex biological events that make osseointegration possible.
Upon insertion, the early bone healing phase is enhanced by the textured titanium oxide surface. Textured surfaces are known to accelerate the initial healing phase through absorption of protein, the accumulation and activation of platelets, fibrin retention, and consequently an increased amount of surrounding bone.
TiUnite® - now 'all the way up'
Our unique implant surface, TiUnite®, is a biomaterial with better ability to maintain primary stability than machined surface implants, while shortening healing times. Numerous studies have revealed that TiUnite® enhances the rate of osseointegration, which supports Immediate Function™ and makes it possible for a wider range of indications. The surface roughness has been increased, giving the fixture optimal surface texture with an enlarged surface area.
The surface texture was achieved by increasing the thickness of the titanium oxide layer. The unique combination of controlled oxide texture and porosity will aid in the ability to absorb proteins from the patient's blood for optimal biologic effect.
As a result, dental implants may be just the immediate tooth replacement solution you are looking for.
The course of treatment described here is one of several options available. Consult Our implant dentists to find out what the best solution is for you, given your specific condition.
1: Before the procedure
Our implant dentist makes a first examination and takes one or more x-rays of the area to prepare for the procedure.
2: Installing the implant
The implant is installed. At this time, if your bone is good, a temporary tooth is provided that allows you eat and function like normal almost immediately. The implant will need a few months to integrate with the jawbone before the next step is taken.
3: Attaching the new crown
The final step is the placement of the permanent ceramic tooth. The new tooth is installed for life. No additional treatment is needed.
4: End result
You should expect the new tooth to fit and function just like a natural tooth. Do your usual dental hygiene to keep the tooth and gum around it clean and healthy.
