  • ROX-CERA Cerid® implant with ceramic coating

The OKTAGON® ROX-CERA implant (bone and tissue level) is made of a grade-5 titanium core and additionally ceramic coated, which supports the long-term stable osseointegration.

The enossal part of the implant is provided with a ceramic, opaque, biocompatible wear- and corrosion-protection layer. The oxides of zirconium are thermodynamically and biochemically stable. Friction corrosion is avoided, and the shear strength of the surface is increased compared to the pure nium surface.

The transgingival part of the tissue-level implant is coated with a spontaneously self-passivating, biochemically stable titanium-niobium-oxynitride layer. The high-level layer hardness protects against injuries caused by instruments. The smooth surface counteracts possible plaque formation.

  • BLT/ bone level tapered implant

The OKTAGON® BLT implant with its apical, conical shape can be helpful in unfavourable bone conditions. The BLT implant is characterised by a high primary stability in soft bone and fresh extraction sockets. The grade-4 titanium implant is available in several diameters and lengths.

With the distribution of the OKTAGON® implant system, Henry Schein Dental underlines its claim to provide a wide range of functional and high-quality products.

DENTAL RATIO® (DRS International) is a Germany-based company that develops products for dental implantology and produces them with MEISINGER. The high quality combined with the intelligent use of resources and procedures ensure efficient and cost-effective solutions.
