Tom’s Story – Replicate Dental Implant

Replicate Implant System

New Techniques in Immediate Dental Implantology.
Root Analogue Implant Surgery Step by Step

This pilot study was to explore an innovative approach of single tooth replacement. Using a custom-fabricated, root-analog, hybrid dental implant in the esthetic zone to avoid the microgap and micromovements between the implant and abutment.

Conventional vs. Innovative Implantology

Step-by-Step video demonstration to see how new and innovative techniques vs. conventional dental implantology

After a tooth is extracted the socket and surrounding tissues undergo remodeling. The use of a root-shaped tooth analog implant might be in selected cases a viable alternative to current threaded cylindrical and cone-shaped implants. The new concept avoids the microgap between the implant and the abutment therefore reducing  the trauma to the tissue and bone. This process leads to soft tissue and bone alterations that can compromise the placement of an implant and the final esthetic of the surrounding tissues. To overcome this limitation and reduce the remodeling, immediate implants are commonly indicated. Additionally it minimizes treatment time, the number of surgical interventions and the overall costs.

How to plan and to perform the workflow for a replicate tooth. A novel digital approach for immediately restoring a single tooth using root analog implants is introduced

The process requires capturing accurate root geometry through combined computer-aided design/computer- assisted manufacturing  and a three-dimensional visualization digital volume tomography of the tooth in situ. Watch the Video…
