NanoTite Non Platform Switched

One Nano Step For Man, One Giant Leap For Implant Dentistry...

Nano In Size, Profound In Effect

  • Microtopography Of The OSSEOTITE Implant Combined With A Nanometer-scale Discrete Crystalline Deposition (DCD®) Of Calcium Phosphate (CaP) Creates A More Complex Surface Topography. This Renders The NanoTite Implant A Bone Bonding Surface By The Interlocking Of The Newly Formed Cement Line Matrix Of Bone With The Implant Surface
  • Preclinical Studies Demonstrate A Substantial Improvement On The Rate And Extent Of Osseointegration For The NanoTite Implant Versus The OSSEOTITE Implant Leading To Implant Stability
  • NanoTite Implants May Be Used For Immediate Function On Single Tooth And/Or Multiple Tooth Applications When Good Primary Stability Is Achieved, With Appropriate Occlusal Loading, In Order To Restore Chewing Function

Why NanoTite?

BIOMET 3i’s OSSEOTITE Surface has more than a decade of clinical use and evidence based research to support its efficacy, so why is another surface needed? As treatment protocols get more advanced and dental implants are placed in more challenging clinical scenarios, there could be a benefit to a surface that provides a greater rate and extent of osseointegration on a more predictable basis. Potential scenarios where such an implant might be beneficial to patient and practice might include the following:

  • Immediate And Accelerated Loading Protocols
  • Immediate Replacement In Extraction Sockets
  • Simultaneous Grafted Sites And Implant Placement
  • Aesthetic Areas Where Bone Preservation Is Critical
  • Implant Placement In Poor-Quality Bone
  • Locations Requiring Short Or Wide Implants

Implants typically demonstrate good primary stability at the time of placement – in principle, a mechanical phenomenon. As bone remodels in subsequent weeks, there can be a reduction in implant stability that might impact early or immediate loading protocols.

The micro-topography of the OSSEOTITE Surface combined with the nanometer-scale architecture created with the NanoTite Surface Treatment renders it a Bone Bonding Surface by the interlocking of the newly formed cement line matrix of bone with the implant surface.
