There’s so much technology in an Astra Tech dental implant, you’d believe me if I told you it could fly!

A successful implant system cannot be determined by one single feature alone.

As with nature, many interdependent features must work together to create a cohesive whole.

Biterite, a facility certified in utilizing the Astra Tech Implant System™, directly integrates aesthetics into the implant system design.

This system works together with nature supporting the natural healing process, not interfering with it.

You and your patients can rely on the Astra Tech implant system today, tomorrow and beyond.

More bone, faster
The Astra Tech implant system builds on the proven success of TiOblast™ with the addition of OsseoSpeed™ — the first and only implant in the world with a chemically modified titanium surface providing unique nano-scale topography stimulating early bone healing as well as speeding up the bone healing process.

Biomechanical bone stimulation
The neck of Astra Tech implants are designed with MicroThread™— minute threads offering optimal load distribution and lower stress values.

This design is based on a thorough understanding of bone physiology, which is vital to optimal implant design.

Bone tissue, as we in the dental profession are aware, is designed to carry loads, and dental implants must be developed to mechanically stimulate the surrounding bone in order to preserve it.

At the same time, it must be taken into consideration the critical point of the implant-bone interface is located at the marginal cortical bone where peak stresses occur.

Together with MicroThread™ on the implant neck, OsseoSpeed provides true growing power for more reliable and effective treatment as a result of the micro-roughened titanium surface treated with fluoride increasing bone formation and stronger bone-to-implant bonding.

Clinical benefits of OsseoSpeed are proven and well-documented.

A strong and stable fit
The Conical Seal Design™ is a conical connection below the marginal bone level that transfers the load deeper down in the bone, thereby reducing peak stresses and preserving the marginal bone.

It also seals off the interior of the implant from surrounding tissues, minimizing micro-movements and micro-leakage.

Conical Seal Design simplifies maintenance and ensures reliability in all clinical situations.

The tight and precisely fitting implant-abutment relation of the Conical Seal Design makes abutment connection a quick and simple procedure.

Since the abutment is self-guiding and the installation procedure is non-traumatic, this eliminates the risk of bone damage.

Increased soft tissue contact zone and volume
The Connective Contour™ is the unique contour that is created when you connect the abutment to the implant.

This contour allows for an increased connective soft tissue contact zone both in height and volume, which integrates with the transmucosal part of the implant, sealing off and protecting the marginal bone.
