BioHorizons Tapered Internal Dental Implants with Laser-Lok microchannels
Tapered Internal dental implants provide excellent primary stability, maximum bone maintenance and soft tissue attachment for optimal esthetics. The Tapered Internal implant achieves these benefits from its anatomically tapered dental implant body, aggressive buttress threads and advanced Laser-Lok surface technology. The deep 1.5mm internal hex connection with a lead-in tapered bevel create a rigid connection and a stable biologic seal.

Tapered Internal is available in three configurations:

  • Mount-free Tapered Internal features a full 1.8mm Laser-Lok collar (no smooth, machined area) and a Resorbable Blast Textured (RBT) body.
  • Mount-free Tapered Internal with Laser-Lok Complete with the Laser-Lok surface technology across the entire implant body (no machined collar or RBT) for faster osseointegration and higher bone to implant contact.20 These are ideal for anatomically challenging conditions. Currently available in 4.6 and 5.8mm diameters only and 7.5 and 9mm lengths only.
  • Tapered Internal with a pre-mounted 3inOne abutment that serves as: (1) an implant mount, (2) a closed tray transfer, when used with a balltop screw, and (3) a temporary or final gold-hued esthetic abutment. This version has a 0.3mm machined area, a 1.5mm Laser-Lok zone and an RBT body.
