DENTSPLY Implants has introduced the next step in the continuous EVolution of the ASTRA TECH Implant System with the ASTRA TECH Implant System™ EV.

DENTSPLY Implants says the ASTRA TECH Implant System™ EV is designed with a site-specific, crown-down approach based on the natural dentition for increased surgical simplicity and flexibility and restorative ease-without compromising the Astra Tech Implant System BioManagement Complex.

The foundation of this step is the unique Astra Tech Implant System BioManagement Complex, documented for its long-term marginal bone maintenance and esthetic results provided by the combination of the following features: the OsseoSpeed surface, MicroThread, Conical Seal Design and Connective Contour.

The main objective of the new system is to further improve system logic, robustness and user friendliness. Simplicity without compromise has permeated the evolution of the Astra Tech Implant System EV.

The new system is a result of the collaborative input and insights from dental professionals throughout the global dental industry. Dr. Lyndon Cooper, USA, and Dr. Clark Stanford, USA, are clinician scientists with broad dental implant experiences that include recent clinical activities using the ASTRA TECH Implant System EV. With a select group of international peers, they have shared their perspectives acknowledging these goals.

“Clinicians should be encouraged to see that the industry continues to strive for improving patient care with dental implants,” says Lyndon Cooper, Stallings Professor of Dentistry of the Department of Prosthodontics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. “The ASTRA TECH Implant System EV illustrates DENTSPLY Implants’ efforts in re-engineering and adherence to sound biologic principles.”

"The ASTRA TECH Implant System EV is a continuing development of a dental implant system derived from a unique collaboration between clinicians, engineers and biologists. It is grounded in the fundamental principles that have guided the system since its inception," adds Clark Stanford, Associate Dean for Research, Centennial Fund Professor, University of Iowa.

The Astra Tech Implant System EV will be launched globally beginning in March 2014 and continuing throughout the year.
