Astra Tech IMPLANTS

OsseoSpeed™ TX S

Fig.1

The implants are machined with a parallel geometry and a tapered apex. Surface texturing is achieved through titanium oxide particle blasting and a fluoride surface additive to enhance osseointegration. Two outside tread patterns are machined on to the implant body consisting of micro threads at the coronal portion and a regular thread pattern on the main portion of the implant. The implant/abutment interface connection is constructed as a internal, double hex conical connection, allowing 12 different positions for final abutments.
Astra does not provide color coding in regards to implant or platform diameter on any of the actual components, only on the component packaging. Four different implant diameters (Fig.1) with 3 implant/abutment platform connection diameters (Fig.2) are offered for this system. 3.0mm (yellow), 3.5mm/4.0mm (aqua) and 5.0mm (lilac). Implants with a crestal diameter of 3.5mm and 4.0mm share the same prosthetic components (aqua). 5.0mm implants share the same prosthetic components as well (lilac). 3.0mm diameter implants are available in lengths of 11mm, 13mm and 15mm. 3.5 diameter implants are provided in lengths of 8, 9, 11, 13, 15 and 17mm. 4.0 diameter implants are offered in an additional length of 6mm. 5.0 diameter implants are available in lengths of 9, 11, 13, 15 and 17mm.

The implants are machined with a parallel main body geometry with a crestal conical portion and a tapered apex (Fig.3). Surface texturing is achieved through titanium oxide particle blasting and a fluoride surface additive to enhance osseointegration. Two outside tread patterns are machined on to the implant body consisting of micro threads at the coronal conical portion and a regular thread pattern on the main portion of the implant. The implant/abutment interface connection is constructed as a internal, double hex conical connection, allowing 12 different positions for final abutments.
Astra does not provide color coding in regards to implant or platform diameter on any of the actual components, only on the component packaging. 4.5 diameter (measured at its widest crestal point) implants are available in lengths of 9, 11, 13, 15 and 17mm with a main implant body diameter of 3.5mm. 5.0 diameter (measured at its widest crestal point) implants are available in lengths of 9, 11, 13, 15 and 17mm with a main implant body diameter of 4mm. Even though the crestal diameter differs on these two implants, the implant/abutment connection (lilac) is machined to the same exact specifications (Fig.4), allowing for cross compatibility of prosthetic components.
