Tapping into the Science of Tapered Implants



Indicated for immediate implant placement after tooth extraction, tapered implants deliver exceptional primary stability and ideal esthetics

In cases of tooth extraction followed by immediate placement, a tapered dental implant is often a clinician’s best bet. The endosseous part of the implant narrows in diameter toward the apex, simulating the shape of the original tooth root for greater implant stability and improved overall esthetics. Built to maximize bone maintenance and soft-tissue attachment, the tapered shape is especially suitable for immediate placement into an empty alveolus, and therefore an essential component to your implant armamentarium.

The tapered implants below offer a wide variety of features, such as color-coded platforms, advanced thread form, and an array of sizes.

SS Implant System from Hiossen's SSII SA Based on Hiossen’s SSII SA and SSIII SA Implant fixtures, the SS Implant System functions without a bone graft by using existing bone, regardless of how soft. Its SA surface morphology increases the surface roughness by 45% compared to an RBM treatment.

With antirotational grooves and octagonal geometry, DENTAL RATIO's OKTAGON Bone-Level Tapered Implant is manufactured from grade-4 pure titanium, with macro-roughness exhibiting a profile of 20 um to 40 um and micro-roughness between 2.0 um and 4.0 um.

Tapered Pro Implants from BioHorizons Delivering predictable, immediate results, Tapered Pro implants from BioHorizons use Laser-Lok microchannels to create connective tissue attachment and retain crestal bone, allowing better control of esthetic outcomes, while deep buttress threads provide high primary stability.

Available in 3.7-mm, 4.1-mm, 4.7-mm, and 6.0-mm sizes, Zimmer Biomet’s Tapered Screw-Vent Implant features a proprietary, friction-fit, internal hex platform that reduces stress on crestal bone and resists abutment screw loosening. Platform Plus Technology creates optimal conditions for bone-level maintenance.

The Straumann Bone Level Tapered (BLT) Implant offers all the features of the Straumann Bone Level Implant line—including excellent mechanical properties and simplified handling—plus the advantages of a tapered implant body. This implant design provides clinicians with the flexibility to make the most of limited anatomy.

NobelReplace ImplantMade with optimal primary stability and crestal bone preservation, Glidewell’s Hahn Tapered Implants also feature a durable and steady conical internal hex prosthetic connection. A pronounced thread pattern and self-tapping grooves are designed to facilitate swift, efficient delivery. Hahn Tapered Implants feature an array of sizes for placement in all regions of the mouth—from tight anterior spaces to second molar sites.

Designed for high initial stability in all loading protocols, NobelReplace from Nobel Biocare offers an easy-to-use connection with 3 interlocking channels for secure and accurate abutment placement. The implant is designed with Nobel Biocare’s unique oxidized TiUnite surface with grooves, which allows the implant to maintain high stability during healing.
