Leader Medica’s conical internal hexagon implant comes from the clinical need to adapt the implant body of the implant to the natural morphologies of the post-extraction implant sites to adapt the implant axis to the residual bone conformation, above all in the upper jaw, or to facilitate the surgery in the maxillary sinus by using Summers’ technique. Moreover, the conical implant has higher primary stability in the bone with D3 or D4 density which is typical in the upper jaw.
Available in 3.4, 4.1, 5,0 diameters with height from 7 mm to 15 mm
The implant has an internal hexagonal connection (1.8 mm deep) that has proved as reliable and suitable over the years to improve the abutment screw stability by limiting the side displacement and reducing the possibility of unscrewing and/or a fracture. The internal connection lowers the center of gravity of the prothesis and leaves the surgeon more space to improve the aesthetic performance of the implant in more visible areas. The hexagon wrench is 2.7 mm and compatible with the one of similar implants with similar connections.
The apical part of the implant has deep apical incisions that make the implant more efficient even in the case of a very mineralized bone (D1 bone). 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 cases where a post-extractive prothesis is installed and/or there is an immediate loading. The curved apex makes the implant safer when it is installed in particularly delicate areas.
The double-etched surface made by a company’s specific process has Ra and BIC values that comply with SLA superficial treatments considered the international “gold standards,” allowing for a decisive decrease of the osteointegration and being, therefore, suitable to “differed” loading.
The implant has a 0.8 mm “machined” polished neck that is useful in preventing plaque accumulation and, since it is easy to remove, it decreases the peri-implant bone resorption after the installation of the implant, providing long lasting aesthetic performances.
