Microtopography of the osseotite® dental implant combined with a nanometer-scale discrete crystalline deposition (dcd) of calcium phosphate (cap) creates a more complex surface topography. This renders the nanotite dental implant a bone bonding surface by the interlocking of the newly formed cement line matrix of bone with the dental implant surface
Preclinical studies demonstrate a substantial improvement on the rate and extent of osseointegration for the nanotite dental implant versus the osseotite dental implant leading to dental implant stability
Nanotite dental implants may be used for immediate function on single tooth and/or multiple tooth applications when good primary stability is achieved, with appropriate occlusal loading, in order to restore chewing function
Biomet 3i’s osseotite surface has more than a decade of clinical use and evidence based research to support its efficacy, so why is another surface needed? As treatment protocols get more advanced and dental implants are placed in more challenging clinical scenarios, there could be a benefit to a surface that provides a greater rate and extent of osseointegration on a more predictable basis.
Potential scenarios where such a dental implant might be beneficial to patient and practice might include the following:
Immediate and accelerated loading protocols
Immediate replacement in extraction sockets
Simultaneous grafted sites and dental implant placement
Aesthetic areas where bone preservation is critical
Implant placement in poor-quality bone
Locations requiring short or wide dental implants
Implants typically demonstrate good primary stability at the time of placement – in principle, a mechanical phenomenon. As bone remodels in subsequent weeks, there can be a reduction in dental implant stability that might impact early or immediate loading protocols.
Now with the next generation surface technology, the nanotite dental implant incorporates the complex architecture at the nanoscale, which renders it a bone bonding surface. Preclinical studies have shown that the surface on the nanotite dental implant results in significantly enhanced integration compared to osseotite control dental implants.
This enhanced osseointegration is occurring at early time points. Biomet 3i is actively investigating via resonance frequency analysis the ability for the nanotite dental implant to produce a more steady state stability™ condition in the early phases of healing.
