The Endopore dental implant incorporates a unique, truncated cone-shaped design that uses a multilayered porous surface geometry over most of its length to achieve integration by three-dimensional bone ingrowth.
Developed in response to the need for a simpler, less invasive and biologically more compliant system, the Endopore implant employs an approach that has been used extensively for orthopedic joint replacement fixation since the mid 1980's. Compared to threaded implants, Endopore's surgical advantages include:
Endopore Surface Technology
Outstanding Success Rates
Endopore’s high rates of success are due to the Endopore’s engagement with the alveolar crest by cortical bone ingrowth into the implant’s interconnecting pores. When the implant is placed into function, occlusal loads transferred to the crest stimulate further cortical bone development in accordance with Wolff’s law. In contrast, a screw-type implant is stabilized only by the alveolar crest’s superior and inferior bone cortices and, over most of its length, weak cancellous bone. With threaded implants, the fixation which occurs at the bone-implant interface can allow for rotational movement of the implant.
Uniform Stress Distribution = Long Term Performance
The design of the Endopore implant permits uniform stress distribution, achieving improved osseous fixation at the bone-implant interface. The significant and ongoing crestal bone loss often seen with threaded implants does not occur. In fact, the minimal bone loss occasionally exhibited in Endopore users levels off quickly to clinically insignificant levels, leading to greatly improved long-term performance.
Increased Surface Area
Because the porous design greatly increases the surface area at the interface between bone and implant, shorter implants can be used. This in turn means that Endopore implants can be used in applications for which much longer threaded implants would be suitable. With Endopore, it is often possible to avoid sinus lifts or other augmentation procedures in the maxilla and mandible, allowing for less patient morbidity and for an implant reconstruction that can be less traumatic and more affordable for the patient.
Clinical radiographic and histological examinations have demonstrated repeatedly that, even with shorter implants, shorter initial healing periods and simpler surgical techniques than are customary with other implant designs, the Endopore implant offers superior fixation performance compared to traditional threaded implants. Most importantly, these results have been demonstrated to be consistent in a clinical setting, where success rates exceed 96%.*Data on file.
Conveniently, whether you use the Two-Stage or One-Stage Endopore® System there is one streamlined surgical kit.
Eliminating the need for an elaborate array of surgical instrumentation. Making placement very efficient!
A complete set of osteotome hand instruments aid in the placement of Endopore® implants in soft maxillary bone.
Osteotomes compress the bone laterally, providing a denser bony interface, rather than removing valuable bone from the surgical site.
