Glidewell Dental's new 3.2 mm–diameterimplant expands the Inclusive Tapered Implant System to accommodate situations in which limited anatomical space is present.
Glidewell Dental has announced that the Inclusive Tapered Implant is now available with a 3.2-mm diameter. The new 3.2 mm–diameter implant incorporates a narrow-diameter apex and is designed to ease positioning in areas of limited anatomical space, such as upper lateral incisors, lower incisors, and narrow ridges. With the latest addition, the Inclusive Tapered Implant System now includes dental implants with 3.2-mm, 3.7-mm, 4.2-mm, 4.7-mm, and 5.2-mm diameters.
The new 3.2 mm–diameter Inclusive Tapered Implant includes a 3.0-mm prosthetic platform, a design feature engineered to increase soft-tissue thickness at the abutment-implant connection, which can facilitate crestal bone preservation. Featuring an industry-standard, internally hexed conical connection, the implant is compatible with popular prosthetic components and instrumentation. The implant’s deep conical interface encourages lateral stability, while its coronal microthreads increase the surface area available for bone-to-implant contact at the crest of the ridge. The tapered body of the implant and buttress threads are designed to engage and gently compress the bone, increasing primary stability and aiding the osseointegration process.
The addition of the 3.2 mm–diameter Inclusive Tapered Implant is accompanied by the release of a surgical kit, which has been redesigned for durability, ease of use, and accommodation of the full line of Inclusive Tapered Implants.
According to the manufacturer, Inclusive Tapered Implants have performed well in clinical studies, are machined from high-strength titanium alloy, and include a surface treated with resorbable blast media (RBM) to promote bone development on the implant.
