Camlog™ and Conelog® IMPLANTS

Camlog™

Fig. 1

Camlog™ implants are made of grade 4 titanium with a internal indexing feature (Tube-in-Tube™). The indexing feature (Fig.1) consists of three spurs (cams) interlocking with corresponding receptacles inside the implant. This interlocking spur configuration has been changed once since the inception of the Camlog™ system. The newly configured implant/abutment interface denoted through "K" article numbers is compatible with the older "J" article number prosthetic componets but old "J" article number prosthetic components are not compatible with the new "K" article number implants. Camlog™ implants are distributed in the USA through Henry Schein®.

Screw-Line™ implants are machined with a slightly tapered body geometry, outside thread pattern and a Promote® surface treatment. The Promote® surface is achieved through particle blasting and followed by acid etching. Implants are available with a 0.4mm (Fig.2, left) and a 1.4mm (Fig.2, right) machined collar. A progressively deeper cutting surface extends about two thirds of the implant from the apical toward the implant/abutment interface with the more aggressive portion at the apical of the implant.

Five implant platform diameters (Fig.3, implant/abutment interface diameter) of 3.3, 3.8, 4.3, 5.0, 6.0mm in four lengths of 9, 11, 13 and 16mm are produced for this implant system with the exception of 3.3mm diameter implants which are not available as a 9mm length implant. Each platform diameter is color coded for platform diameter identification gray (3.3), yellow (3.8), red (4.3), blue (5.0) and green (6.0). Although the implants themselves are not color coded, only the implant packaging. Implants are packaged with a pre installed fixture mount and cover screw, both color coded.

ROOT-LINE implants (Fig.4) are machined with a diminishing screw depth pattern toward the apical of the implant and the body geometry is designed with a taper towards the apical from the mid point of the implant length. The surface roughening consists of the Promote® surface and is achieved through particle blasting and acid etching. A 2mm machined collar separates the Promote® surface treated area from the implant/abutment interface.

SCREW-CYLINDER-LINE implants (Fig.5, left) are machined with a parallel body geometry and a few threads at the top third of the implant. The surface is treated through the Promote® roughening process and a machined collar of 2mm separates the surface treated area from the implant/abutment area..

CYLINDER-LINE implants (Fig.5, right) are machined with a parallel body geometry and no outside thread pattern on the implant body. The surface is treated with a titanium plasma spray (TPS) and a machined collar of 2mm separates the surface treated area from the implant/abutment area.

Conelog®

Fig. 6

The Conelog® implant represents the latest innovation from Camlog™ Biotechnologies AG. A improved internal implant/abutment interface (Fig.6) is ported to the existing Camlog™ SCREW-LINE™ implant geometry, thread pattern, titanium grade 4 and Promote® surface treatment. The Tube-in-Tube™ internal configuration of the Camlog™ system has been abandoned in favor of a 7.5 degree internal cone and the indexing feature was moved deeper in to the implant. Platform switching is now a standard feature due to the improved implant/abutment interface and the Promote® surface is now carried to the implant/abutment platform without any machined collar. Surgical instrumentation is the same as the Camlog™ SCREW-LINE implant system. Conelog® implants are not distributed in the USA.

Screw-Line™ implants are machined with a slightly tapered body geometry, outside thread pattern and a Promote® surface treatment. The Promote® surface is achieved through particle blasting and followed by acid etching. A progressively deeper cutting surface extends about two thirds of the implant from the apical toward the implant/abutment interface with the more aggressive portion at the apical of the implant.

Four implant platform diameters (Fig.8, implant/abutment interface diameter) of 3.3, 3.8, 4.3, 5.0mm in five lengths of 7, 9, 11, 13 and 16mm (Fig.7) are produced for this implant system with the exception of 3.3mm diameter implants which are not available as a 7mm length implant. Each platform diameter is color coded for platform diameter identification gray (3.3), yellow (3.8), red (4.3) and blue (5.0). Although the implants themselves are not color coded, only the implant packaging. Implants are packaged with a pre installed fixture mount and cover screw, both color coded.
