BioHorizons’ Laser-Lok Esthetic Abutments
Laser-Lok esthetic abutments have been shown to attract physical connective tissue attachment.
Specifically designed for highly esthetic cases, Laser-Lok esthetic abutments create a biological seal that protects and maintains crestal bone. Approved for use with Zimmer implants, BioHorizons’ Laser-Lok esthetic abutments feature a proven surface technology that establishes a connective tissue attachment, unlike Sharpey fibers.
BioHorizons Laser-Lok technology is a series of precision-engineered cell-sized channels laser-machined onto the surface of dental implants and abutments. Exemplifying BioHorizons dedication to evidence-based research and development, it is unlike any other dental abutment or implant surface treatment on the market.
The Laser-Lok surface treatment is a proprietary technology developed from over 20 years of research initiated to create the optimal implant surface. Through this research, the unique Laser-Lok surface has been shown to elicit a biologic response that includes the inhibition of epithelial downgrowth and the attachment of connective tissue (unlike Sharpey fibers). This physical attachment produces a biologic seal around the implant that protects and maintains crestal bone health. The Laser-Lok phenomenon has been shown in post-market studies to be more effective than other implant designs in reducing bone loss.
