Ceraroot which makes various anatomically shaped single piece zirconium implants has released another `extraction and immediate implant` video on Google video. This one features a maxillary pre-molar.
Zirconium One Stage Implants
Ceraroot have designed five ziconium-based one-stage implants for use in different areas of the mouth. The anatomically designed implants incorporate the abutment into the implant for a very esthetic result. An interesting video is posted on Google Video showing the use of a Ceraroot implant in an immmediate placement procedure.
BTI Bone Expander Drills
B.T.I. has introduced a bone expander drill set. It uses a set of four wedge-shaped bone expanders to expand alveolar bone and condense bone in sites with low bone density. The rotary motion of either an implant handpiece or a torgue wrench is used to slowly expand the bone instead of using the more traditional osteotome/bone condenser/ridge spitter and surgical mallet combination.
