Commitment to simplified treatment

Less trauma: no complex reconstructions

Most severe maxillary atrophies need to be treated using extremely traumatic surgical procedures that require complicated approaches. This means that the professional needs more training, implies a lengthier treatment time and more resources on the part of the patient.

BTI has solutions that don't involve complex reconstructions which are less invasive thanks to the narrower and shorter implants, allowing you address these cases in a simpler way.

Greater success: no postoperative complications

Simpler protocols imply greater predictability. Not having post-operative complications guarantees a higher rate of successful surgical procedures and improves patient satisfaction. Patients will subsequently share their positive experience helping you to grow as a professional.

Greater acceptance by the patient: no delays in rehabilitation and increased costs

Less invasive surgery helps to convince the patient to go ahead with it as they won't feel uneasy or fearful, they'll know that there won't be any delays in recovery or high costs.

Solution for horizontal atrophies

3.0 Implants

The 3.0 implants allow to treat total and partial edentulisms without previous steps of bone augmentation, always in the presence of a moderate volume of bone.

In severe atrophy situations, using the motorized expander kit and PRGF – ENDORET® Technology, the expansion technique can be carried out in a less invasive way to obtain adequate bone volume.

Solution for vertical atrophies

Short implants

The short implants allow treating edentulisms with moderate atrophies in one surgical step:

  • without sinus elevations
  • risk-free in the lower jaw due to its proximity to the dental nerve

In severe atrophy situations, the front cut drill and PRGF – ENDORET® will simplify the surgical approach to the mandible and maxillary sinus.

Short and narrow implants have sufficient osseointegration surface

According to BTI Finite Element Studies:

  • the implant, once osseointegrated, regardless of its length, diameter and geometry, transmits stresses to the bone along the first 3 turns, progressively decreasing in the apical direction
  • increasing implant diameter reduces stresses by 20-30% on adjacent bone

So, to reduce stresses to the adjacent bone, BTI recommends:

  • to use short implants with the largest possible diameter
  • to increase the number of narrow implants in multiple restorations, reserving their use as single units for lower and upper lateral incisors

Evidence-based implantology

More than 15 years of clinical research show the good performance of short and narrow implants. Their survival rates are similar to, and in some cases even higher, standard length and diameter implants.
