The new ASTRA TECH Implant System™ EV

The ASTRA TECH Implant System EV is the next step in the continuous evolution of the ASTRA TECH Implant System. 

The foundation of this evolutionary step remains the unique ASTRA TECH Implant System
BioManagement Complex
, well-documented for its long-term marginal bone maintenance and esthetic results.

A continuous evolution

Our groundbreaking innovations are the result of knowledge and understanding of the biological and clinical processes involved in dental implant therapy.

ASTRA TECH Implant System EV timeline

Clinical use of the first generation of implants with Conical Seal Design and Connective Contour is initiated in a study at the Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm, Sweden

The idea of blasting the implant surface with titanium dioxide particles to increase bone growth and osseo-integration is presented and the TiOblast surface is born.

The concept of a fluoride modified implant surface to help speed up the osseointegration process is conceived by a team at the University of Oslo, Norway. As a result, the first experimental pre-clinical studies on OsseoSpeed are initiated in 1993. In 2000, the first patient receives an OsseoSpeed implant at the University of Oslo. The first and only chemically modified implant surface – OsseoSpeed – is launched in 2004 at EAO in Paris.

The idea of minute threads on the implant neck to ensure positive biomechanical bone stimulation and maintained marginal bone level is born – MicroThread. After comparing 840 threads of different shapes and sizes, the optimal profile for positive stress distribution is identified.

ATLANTIS patient-specific CAD/CAM abutments are introduced for the ASTRA TECH Implant System.

OsseoSpeed TX is launched. TX stands for tapered apex and it is introduced on the complete implant assortment.

OsseoSpeed TX Profile, the unique, patented implant that is anatomically designed for sloped ridges, is introduced.

Introduction of the ASTRA TECH Implant System EV. The design philosophy of the implant system is based on the natural dentition utilizing a site-specific, crown-down approach. Featuring a unique interface with one-position-only placement for ATLANTIS patient-specific CAD/CAM abutments.
