tapered short dental implant system

Tapered Short dental implants with Laser-Lok microchannels
BioHorizons Tapered Short implants offer a solution for cases with limited vertical bone height, potentially expediting treatment by eliminating the need for bone grafting.10 The Tapered Short implant design features an aggressive thread profile and tapered body for primary stability, even in compromised situations. A platform-switched, dual-affinity, Laser-Lok surface offers crestal bone retention and a connective tissue attachment for flexible placement.

Tapered Short instruments

Tapered Short implants can be placed using minimal instrumentation due to a new stepped drill design which streamlines the surgical protocol. Tapered Short drills consist of a universal starter drill with intermediate and final drills that are diameter specific. The stepped starter and intermediate drills provide rapid osteotomy preparation and enhanced control during surgery. The optional final drill can be used depending on bone density and desired implant stability.

  • stepped cutting flute design for a streamlined protocol
  • color-coded drills for easy identification
  • non-reflective surface for high visibility
  • creates 12-20 osteotomies depending on bone density
  • recommended drill speed 1,500 RPM
