Several clinical challenges reportedly are solved with the introduction of DENTSPLY Implants’ new treatment solutions.
Buccal and lingual marginal bone preservation in sloped ridge situations are said to be enhanced with the new OsseoSpeed Profile EV implant design, and two new products in the SYMBIOS regenerative solutions portfolio are engineered to advance bone formation and stability.
“When we develop new implant therapy solutions, it is important that they meet actual clinical needs. With these introductions, we can offer clinicians various solutions for compromised cases related to marginal bone,” says Björn Delin, DDS, and Vice President Global Platform Implant Systems at DENTSPLY Implants.
360-degree bone preservation in sloped ridge situations
Marginal bone preservation is an important factor to achieve excellent esthetic results. However, it is a clinical reality that crestal bone resorbs after tooth extraction or tooth loss. This resorption is often pronounced on the buccal side, resulting in a lingual-to-buccal sloped ridge.
The new OsseoSpeed Profile EV implant is placed level with both buccal and lingual marginal bone, where the design supports the soft tissue by preserving marginal bone 360 degrees around the implant.
In addition, it may reduce the need for bone augmentation.
This is the second generation of the patented implant specifically designed for sloped ridge situations that was first introduced in 2011.

Promoting bone formation and stability
In clinical cases where patients lack bone quantities for stable implant placement, bone graft material can help create new bone or remodel existing ridges.
SYMBIOS Regenerative Solutions offers a comprehensive range of products for bone augmentation and periodontal procedures designed to promote bone formation and stability. Two new products are now available: the SYMBIOS Biphasic Bone Graft Material and the SYMBIOS Collagen Membrane SR (slow resorbable).
From plant origin, SYMBIOS Biphasic Bone Graft Material is a composition of 20% hydroxyapatite and 80% ß-tricalciumphosphate, reportedly resorbing faster than pure hydroxyapatite; it is used for reconstruction of bony defects in maxillofacial surgery and augmentations. With the SYMBIOS Collagen Membrane SR, DENTSPLY Implants introduces a slow resorbable collagen membrane, designed to be absorbed in order to eliminate the need for surgical removal.
