OsseoSpeed™ – more bone more rapidly: Building on the proven success of TiOblast™, OsseoSpeed™ is the first and only implant in the world with a chemically modified titanium surface, providing unique nano scale topography, that stimulates early bone healing and speeds up the bone healing process. The result of the micro-roughened titanium surface treated with fluoride is increased bone formation and stronger bone-to-implant bonding. Together with MicroThread™ on the implant neck, OsseoSpeed provides true growing power in action for more reliable and effective treatment. The clinical benefits of OsseoSpeed are proven and well-documented. MicroThread™ – biomechanical bone stimulation: The neck of Astra Tech implants are designed with MicroThread™— minute threads that offer optimal load distribution and lower stress values. This design is based on a thorough understanding of bone physiology, vital to optimal implant design. Since bone tissue is designed to carry loads, dental implants must be developed to mechanically stimulate the surrounding bone in order to preserve it, taking into consideration that the critical point of the implant-bone interface is located at the marginal cortical bone where peak stresses occur.
