Stable soft tissue and marginal bone maintenance

DENTSPLY Implants sound scienceAchieving beautiful, natural-looking esthetics for your implant patients requires biological sustainability—the harmony of marginal bone and surrounding soft tissue over time.

This harmony exists when all the elements of an implant system—implant design, surface treatment, abutment connection—work in unison with biology.

But biological sustainability is a journey, not only a destination. By searching further and continuing to challenge with sound science, we can provide evidence demonstrating biological sustainability, leading to optimal dental implant treatment outcomes.

Summaries of prospective studies with 5-year data on OsseoSpeed implants with maintained bone levels from implant placement and implant loading confirm stable soft tissue and an average bone reduction of only 0.3 mm.

We search further because we are committed to sound science, providing biological sustainability for a world where everyone can eat, speak and smile with confidence—because it matters.

Maintained esthetics

Excellent long-term clinical results

Properly maintained marginal bone is critical for supporting adjacent soft tissue. Abundant, healthy bone and soft tissue ensures your ability to provide your patients with ideal esthetics.
