ANKYLOS® Prosthetic Options

The SmartFix Concept

Prosthetic solution on angled implants

The SmartFix Concept is an implant-prosthetic procedure for the immediate restoration for edentulous patients with screw-retained bridges or bar dentures in the upper and lower jaw.

The Advantage is Yours with SmartFix

  1. Ankylos SmartFix conceptAvoiding critical anatomical areas
    With the aid of angled inplants, augmentations and critical anatomical regions can be circumvented

  2. Stable prosthetic fit
    The prosthetic support base is extended distally by the angled implant position and hence optimal advantage is taken of the local bone.

  3. Optimal design freedom
    The extremely delicate abutment head provides the optimal design freedom for the superstructure in terms of height and diameter.

  4. Secure handling
    The abutment components are premounted on a seating instrument. Delivery of the angled ANKYLOS Balance Base abutment is facilitated by the short and flexible seating instrument.

  5. Using CAD/CAM-fabricated superstructures
    The angled ANKYLOS Balance Base abutments can be optimally connected to ATLANTIS ISUS implant superstructures

  6. Freely positionable
    Thanks to the non-indexed ANKYLOS Balance Base abutments, the implant and the abutment are freely positionable.

  7. Subcrestal placement
    Due to the keyed and friction-locked TissueCare tapered connection, ANKYLOS can be placed subcrestally. This comes in useful for the SmartFix concept, since, with angled insertion, the distal implant shoulder is always positioned below the bone level

  8. Marked platform switching
    The transition between the implant and the abutment is shifted centrally by the marked platform switching. Mechanical and microbial irritants are kept away from the peri-implant tissues. Thanks to the very narrow abutments, a collision with the distal bony margin is avoided to the greatest possible extent.
