Astra Tech IMPLANTS

OsseoSpeed™ TX S

Fig.1

The grade 4 titanium implants are machined with a parallel geometry and a tapered apex. Surface texturing is achieved through titanium oxide particle blasting and a fluoride surface (Fig.4) 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.

Fig.2

Astra does provide some color coding in regards to implant or platform diameter on some of the actual components, in some instances color coding is only provided 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.

OsseoSpeed™ TX

Fig.3

The grade 4 titanium 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 (Fig.4) 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.

Fig.4

Astra does provide color coding in regards to implant or platform diameter on some of the actual components and 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.2, bottom), allowing for cross compatibility of prosthetic components.

OsseoSpeed™ Profile

Fig.5

Profile implants are produced with the same grade 4 titanium and surface texture (Fig.4) as standard OsseoSpeed™ implants. The coronal portion of the Profile implant is cut at a 30 ° angle (Fig.5) half way through the diameter of the implant. This feature may allow placement of the implant in to a sloping bony crest without bone grafting or a portion of the implant above or below the bone at the time of implant placement. The implant/abutment interface connection is constructed as a internal, double hex conical connection (Fig.2), allowing 6 different positions for final abutments and machined to the same dimensions regardless of the implant diameter..

Fig.6

TX S Profile implants (Fig.6) are machined with a parallel geometry and a tapered apex. Two outside thread 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. One implant diameter of 5.0mm, available in lengths of 9, 11, 13, 15 and 17mm comprises the TX S Profile product group.

Fig.7

TX Profile implants (Fig.7) are machined with a parallel main body geometry and a conical crestal portion with a tapered apex. Two outside thread 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. Two implant diameters of 4.5mm and 5.0mm, available in lengths of 9, 11, 13, 15 and 17mm comprises the TX Profile product group.
