ABOUT THE PYRAMIDION IMPLANT SYSTEM
Severely resorbed jaws are among the highest clinical challenges, for both surgeons and restorative dentists. In the posterior maxilla and mandible, alveolar bone resorption results in proximity of the alveolar crest to underlying anatomical structures, e.g. the maxillary sinus and the inferior alveolar canal.
Often, this prevents the use of dental implants unless patients go through an augmentation procedure.
Although advanced bone grafting procedures, such as maxillary sinus augmentation or guided bone regeneration (GBR) have become popular, they are not considered as conservative treatment.
Complications of maxillary sinus augmentation may occur during or after the surgical procedure. Complications such as sinus infections, causing acute or chronic sinusitis, not only cause pain, but also delay healing and prolongs treatment significantly.
Vertical ridge augmentation techniques in the mandible present even higher challenges, associate with low success rate and enhanced patient morbidity.
The PYRAMIDION implant system, was designed with deep understanding of bone biology, anatomy and physiology in order to be used as a simple, safe and effective alternative to invasive procedures.
Pyramidion's patented system provides superior benefits to both dental professionals and patients:
Pyramidion's novel patented design provides twice the implant contact surface which allows for significantly higher bone-to-implant contact and better osseointegration results compared to conventional short implants
With a popular neck diameter (3.75 or 4.1 mm) and an expandable apical segment the unique design of the Pyramidion implant makes it an implant with load-carrying performance that is equivalent to conventional longer implant (≥10 mm).
The PYRAMIDION’s narrow platform (relative to conventional short implants) better suits resorbed bone anatomy. While other short implants apply high stress at the crestal bone and low at the apical area, the pyramid shape generates a different stress distribution pattern, low at the crestal bone and high at the apical area. This leads to high initial stability for immediate loading procedures, and less bone loss over time.
Patented snap-back mechanism adjusts pressure, created during expansion into the surrounding bone, to prevent necrosis while allowing for highly stable placement.
