SilverPlug® is described as the only dental material in the world certified for the specific use as a filler and sealant for closing the screw access hole on implant cementable abutments or screw retained crowns.

Developed in Switzerland, SilverPlug utilizes silver zeolite, a naturally occurring substance, in a pliable polymer material to allow adaptation to the area over the fixation screw, adapting to the geometry of the space as it is placed. The silver zeolite is a natural antibacterial material that prevents the formation of biofilm and bacteria. Typically, micro-movement of the implant abutment allows bacteria to form inside the implant screw access hole that may cause periodontal disease around the implant.

By using this product from SilverPlug USA, the clinician and patient will notice no bacterial odor when performing implant maintenance, and will find a lack of mucositis and peri-implantitis over the life of the implant, the company states. More than 10 years of clinical reporting has been performed in the European Union and elsewhere.

SilverPlug is now available online at www.silverplug.us
