Atlas Implants with the patented denture comfort technique expand the patient population eligible for treatment. The tapered, one-piece implant design eliminates the microgap, which is related to cres­tal bone loss, facilitates one-stage surgery, provides immediate restoration, and is more conducive to a flapless implant placement. Addition­ally, utilizing a minimally invasive, flapless procedure with an immediate restoration eliminates many postoperative challenges, as well as reducing total treatment time. The Tuf-Link reline provides for an individualized custom fit every time, the first time. This material offers cushioned support designed to maximally engage the dome-shaped head to achieve clinically significant retention even in less than ideal conditions. Addi­tionally, the silicone-based reline provides retention without rigidity, thereby reducing unwanted lateral forces. This further increases integration potential, ultimately protecting the implant. For more information, call (800) 323-3136 or visit the Web site

DENTSPLY Tulsa Dental Specialties

It's time to measure hard- and soft-tissue response in gains, not losses. The ANKYLOS Implant System makes it possible with 3 fundamental differences: (1) the unique ANKYLOS conical connection eliminates micromovement between the implant and abutment; (2) nowhere is tissue response more important than in the anterior aesthetic zone, where a gain in interdental papilla height contributes to natural-looking outcomes; and (3) progressive thinking versus progressive bone loss. ANKYLOS implants set a new standard in hard- and soft-tissue stability and are clinically proven to provide long-lasting aesthetic outcomes.
