COLOGNE, Germany: For modern implant concepts such as immediate restoration or loading, a high initial stability is mandatory. The current concepts in the market for immediacy are mainly niche implants, suitable for specific situations or bone types only. The geometry of the new PROGRESSIVE-LINE implants, however, was developed to be an implant suitable for all indications, with predictable results and increased primary stability—in this way, this apically tapered implant facilitates the implementation of all treatment concepts.
The PROGRESSIVE-LINE is available either as a CONELOG implant—a real bone level implant with conical connection and integrated platform switching—or as a CAMLOG implant for prosthetic ease, using the renowned Tube-in-Tube connection. Both options ensure high initial stability including in soft bone.
A highly efficient drill protocol offers maximum flexibility in order to safely place the implant according to the needs of the treatment plan—without requiring additional tools or a tap. Well-thought-out features make the practitioner feel at ease with all standard clinical treatments, but in particular, assist him in critical clinical situations, for example in the case of limited bone height.
PROGRESSIVE-LINE implants feature threads down to the apex that make them ideal for immediate implantation, while also including a coronal anchorage thread for improved stability in reduced bone height. Additional features encompass a broadened thread height, and a parallel-walled section for placement flexibility.
Dr Annika Meyer, Senior Brand Manager at CAMLOG, said: “I am impressed with the initial stability you can reach reproducibly in soft bone with PROGRESSIVE-LINE and there are some other features that provide additional safety. The coronal anchorage thread is of great help when doing sinus lifts, and the threads up to the apical tip are very convenient when it comes to immediate placement.” Dr Meyer has been involved in the development of the PROGRESSIVE-LINE implant.
