The implant body has a frusto-conical shape, with three self-tapping milled elements extending from the apex to the cylindrical zone. The neck furrowed by micro threads is followed by a higher performance threaded part, which has a particular “traction” thread profile to guarantee an optimal hold. The micro cortical threading allows for excellent osseointegration and minimal crest retraction. The surgical protocol requires the use of the countersink to ensure an ideal housing for the micro threaded neck. A miniature crest has been created inside the main thread, which, in addition to increasing the contact surface with the bone tissue, also protects it against harmful compressions at the “core”.
The choice of the threading and longitudinal milling characteristics of the Profile1® implants The system has been designed to adapt to the various characteristics of the bone tissue upon which the intervention is to be carried out. In this regard, two different thread profiles have been identified, which are differentiated as follows:
Narrow-pitch implant The characteristics of this implant’s profile are mainly found to be suitable in the presence of a good quality bone tissue (class 1-2). In these cases, it is recommended to scrupulously follow the surgical protocol and to use the bone tap.
Wide-pitch implant This thread is characterised by an extremely wide spiral profile, which even ensures an exceptional hold under very low density bone conditions (class 3-4).
Implant / abutment connection. The connection for the DeepNeck implants has a 22° tapering shape and a double hexagon. Coupling cone.The 22° cone is the ideal solution for combining a safe barrier against bacterial infiltrations with excellent stability, while at the same time allowing for the abutments to be easily removed if necessary. The implant/abutment stability obtained with this geometry ensures an effective load distribution, and prevents the micro-movement, unscrewing and breakage of the prosthetic screws.
Double internal hexagon. The double hexagon counteracts the torsional loads to which the prosthetic abutment is subjected. It also guarantees exceptional precision when positioning the prosthetic abutment thanks to the twelve possible solutions, which are extremely useful when positioning pre-angled or MUA abutments.
Platform switching. The possibility of Platform Switching (the coupling of an Abutment with a reduced diameter with respect to the implant platform) facilitates the healing of the mucous membrane’s connective soft tissue, reduces peri-implant bone resorption cones, and improves the aesthetic appearance due to decreased mucosa recession, thus ensuring better gingival maintenance.
Designed to have the same features of stability and load as larger implants, all contained in a diameter of just 2.90 mm. With a very simple surgical procedure, it is the ideal implant with which to familiarise yourself safely with the Profile1® family.
The Profile1® Mini line consists of a series of monoblock implants of extremely small diameters (2 mm, 2.4 mm and 2.5 mm) for immediate loading (preferably temporary), which can be used as supports for mobile prostheses.
