The Samara Dental Implant System
Alveolar based Implants
Classic implant techniques involve inserting a screw into the bone. In order to do this, there must be a sufficient amount of bone length and thickness to support the implant. Once inserted, the implants rely on the process of Osseointegration between implant and bone. It is then required to wait 3 months to 1.5 years until the Osseointegration process completes.
Of the various biological processes associated with bone tissue, two include the dynamic remodeling (Osteoblast cells) and resorption (Osteoclast cells) of bone structure.
These are the key cells responsible for Osseointegration between implant and bone.
Osteoclast cells prevalent in the Alveolar bone have an excellent memory in terms of original biological bone structure. Any deviation will be naturally repaired and restored to its original form.
Because classic implant structure deviates greatly from the original root bone structure, this may cause the stimulation of erratic osteoclastic activity.
Recent studies indicate that 80% of cases with standard implants exhibit a significant amount of vertical and horizontal bone resorption (Peri-implantitis) after a certain amount of time, leaving only the apical tip of the implant remaining within the bone. The likely reason for this is due to the classical implant structure which significantly differs from the original biological root structure.
We have designed a unique implant solution that solves these problems as well as opens opportunities for alternative techniques.
The conical structure of our implants is designed to use a 0.2 -3.5 mm drill which is minimally invasive to the bone thereby reducing bone shock, as well as protecting from potential bacterial infection by including an abutment structure above the shank.
Threads reach the upper bone edge, making the bone susceptible to bacterial infection leading to Peri-implantitis and implant rejection.
A wide disparity between the cylindrical structure of the implant and the bone it is meant to be technically replacing. which can lead to the stimulation of erratic osteoclastic activity.
Built-in Abutment structure
Can be bent for a customized support angle
Can be used to support an adhesive bridge
Minimally invasive screw design reducing tissue trauma
Minimizes the risk of Peri-implantitis
Can be used for bi-cortical stabilization
Compressive 1 pc. basal implant
Solutions for mild to extreme bone atrophy
Classic methods for treating patients exhibiting bone atrophy involve Sinus augmentation and bone grafting which is an exceptionally complicated procedure with low success rates that requires at least a year Osseointegration period before loading the implants. Even if successful, the results are usually short term.
Any complications resulting from this procedure can be disastrous to the patient – potentially harming the maxillary sinus, compromising vital sinus functionality.
Compressive basal two-piece implant
The active portion that is screwed, is made of two parts.
The lower base is significantly thinner than the upper screw base in order to avoid potential tearing of the spheno-pterygoid fossa .
Used as a single, double or triple disc implant, it is the only implant that can be used for the most extreme cases of mandibular atrophy, specifically cases where the lower jaw bone exhibits good length characteristics but is missing the necessary width (at least 3mm) for standard implants. Additionally, it is the only long term implant solution that can be used for the most extreme cases of maxillary atrophy. Used between the two upper canines, this implant utilizes the benefits of screw retained restoration.
Used for extreme cases of Mandibular atrophy where the lower jaw bone exhibits good length characteristics but is missing the necessary width of at least 3mm for standard implants.
Long term Implant solution for the most extreme cases of Maxillary atrophy. Used between the two upper canines, this implant utilizes the benefits of screw retained restoration.
Zygomatic Implant *
Used with patients with advanced bone atrophy, or even complete loss of bone. The basis of the implant lies within the Zygomatic bone.
A highly durable long lasting implant anchored within the zygomatic cortical bone, which is not affected by bone atrophy.
Additionally, the zygomatic cortical bone can be utilized for up to three implants per side, enabling comprehensive and permanent maxillary screw retained restoration.
The active portion is permanent. 12mm length, 4.2mm thickness.
This unique one-piece implant eliminates the need for a multi-unit screw creating a stronger more stable structure with a larger sized screw as well as a bendable end, improving the accuracy of the angle used for stabilization.
Hybrid Plate Implant
Used for patients with significant bone atrophy. Relies on the maxillary and mandibular cortical bone. Also avoids the need for Sinus lifting /Bone graft. Good for older patients, as well as patients who request immediate loading.
Utilizes support from the Zygomatic arch, nasal and hard palate cortical bones
Can be supported by the mandibular cortical bone
Can be used for severe cases of bone atrophy
Optional immediate loading
This type of implant and technique not only eliminates the need for sinus lifting and bone graft, it also replaces cantilevers. More importantly, this procedure can be used within the upper wisdom tooth area -at the most distal edge of maxilla. This location serves as an optimal entry point, enabling direct access to the medial rib of the spheno-pterygoid fossa - delivering strong, long-term anchorage. Additionally, it can be used on older patients, and those who desire immediate loading.
