Leader Medica’s cylindrical external hexagon implant was born from the original project by Prof. P.I. Branemark and its technical features have been improved, updating it to the latest clinical innovations.
Available in 3 different diameters 3.4, 4.1, 5.0 and heights from 7 mm to 15 mm
The coronal part of the implant is micro-threaded to decrease the masticatory force onto the crestal bone; consequently, it decreases the peri-implant bone resorption.
The apical part of the implant has deep apical incisions that make the implant more efficient even in the event of a very mineralized bone (D1 bone). Having a more conical apex helps the dentist insert the implant and prepare the surgical site to get the highest primary stability regardless of the bone density (D2, D3, D4). Therefore, the implant is useful in the case that a post-extractive prothesis is installed and/or there is an immediate loading.
The double-etched surface made by the company’s specific process has Ra and BIC values in line with those SLA superficial treatments considered the international “gold standards,” allowing a decisive decrease of osteointegration compared to standard surfaces.
The implant has a 0.5 mm “machined” polished neck, which is useful in preventing the accumulation of plaque and allowing for an easy removal to the benefit of a reduction in peri-implant bone resorption after the implant installation for long lasting aesthetic performances.
The external hexagon connection has standard dimensions in accordance with similar implants. The hexagon height is 0.7 mm with a 2.18 mm wrench for a 3.4 platform and a 2.7 mm wrench for 4.1 and 5.0 platforms so that the connection is compatible with implants with similar technical features. The same dimensions of the hexagon of the 4.1 and 5.0 platforms make the Switching Platform prosthetic possible by using the 4.1 mm prothesis components in the event that the diameter is 5.0.
Angled Prothesis Tightening. The working of the implant platform with the relevant bases of the prothesis components, at a constant and not right angle, improves the seal between the abutment and along the whole peripheral surface, consequently guaranteeing less plaque infiltration in the peri-implant interconnection in contact with the bone, decreases bone resorption providing long lasting aesthetic performance.
