I am very pleased to introduce you to the latest type of dental implant designed by the well-known manufacturing company of Straumann premium implant: Straumann Roxolid dental implant.
This dental implant is made of a titanium and zirconium alloy which confers it two properties superior to any other type of dental implant currently on the market:
- Mechanical resistance higher than any other alloy makes it a resistant dental implant even at very small dimensions.
- High osteoconductiveness, which recommends it as a fast dental implant that can be dentured two – three months after its insertion into the bone.
There are many cases where patients do not have enough bone to insert a dental implant of size appropriate to the masticatory needs of the area. I refer here in particular to the implant in the area of back teeth (of the molars). More details…
I quite often hear questions like: “What solution do you recommend so that I can avoid bone addition?” Or “Give me a dental implant solution when I lack sufficient bone”. Well, Straumann Roxolid dental implant is an extraordinarily good solution in these cases of moderate to severe bone absence.
Due to its mechanical resistance, it is also produced in very small dimensions: 3.3 mm in diameter and 4 mm in length. Furthermore due to these very small dimensions, in some clinical cases it can also be called the dental implant without surgery because the access toward the bone can be performed directly through the gum, with a special cutter, without the need to cut the gum and then sew it back on.
Its other property, osteoconductiveness, makes it a fast dental implant, accompanied by no pain at all, because our bone cells are attracted like a magnet to its surface, leading to healing and much faster osteointegration than in case of other dental implants.
I hereby present you a clinical case treated in the dental clinic Artistic Dent:
The patient has a vertical bone shortage at the 6 year-old molar, with a peak bone height of just 4.5 mm. With the use of classical technique, she would have needed a bone addition surgery of the type “Sinus lift”. With this resistant Straumann Roxolid dental implant of only 4 mm long and 4.1 mm in diameter, the patient no longer needed the Sinus lift bone addition.
After a very short healing period of two months, I took the toothprint over the dental implant quickly healed. We decided to make a mobilizable crown in the dental practice for its easy maintenance for the next 30 years.
We have tried on the work coming from the dental technique laboratory and noticed that slight changes are required (especially the colour). I screwed the crown into the dental implant and then I filled (obturated) the access path to the fastening screw.
I firmly believe that this tooth will continue to function in the patient’s mouth for at least the next 30 years.
I recommend the Straumann Roxolid dental implant in most cases of moderate to severe bone deficiency due to the following benefits /advantages:
- very high resistance over time;
- no pain considering the decrease in the complexity of surgical procedure;
- reducing the final cost per tooth;
- the complete duration of the tooth appearaing in the mouth is much lower than in the case of other implants.
Respectfully and hopefully this information is helpful to you.
