SDS ceramic implants / Dynamic Thread® design
SDS Ceramic Implants: conceived and matured at the practice, thereby offering patients excellent aesthetics, stability, precision, osseointegration and health. Combined with state-of-the-art surfaces, the Dynamic Thread® implant design makes the ideal solution possible for all bone classes. Thoroughly metal-free, SDS implants stand for the highest level of biocompatibility. The zirconia SDS uses, is the material of choice in biological and immunological implantology.
Dynamic Thread® and CDI implant engineering
The SDS team can look back on over 15 years of experience in ceramic implants, which is key to its work in the development and production of CDI implants. Through performing tens of thousands of implant procedures over the years, our development team has increased our understanding of the properties, possibilities and limits of zirconia.
The upper region of the implant thread is equipped with a micro-thread and therefore meets the requirements of cortical bone, which does not tolerate compression. At the same time, the use of a micro-thread results in an increased core diameter in the area of peak implant load, significantly improving implant stability. The bone level for tissue-level insertion is approximately at the height of the white arrow. The red arrow shows the implant area that is exposed to the highest loads according to ISO 14801 during simulated bone recession. The voluminous tulip shaped area of the implant constitutes the lower half of the abutment and supports the soft tissue by means of the “zirconia epithelial” connection.
The lower region of the implant thread is equipped with “Dynamic Thread®”. This self-tapping thread increases primary stability and has 2½ times the thread depth in the bone-condensing area, thereby generating a very large surface area for reliable osseointegration, even in difficult bone. By combining a drilling protocol that varies according to bone class and appropriately adapted form drills, CDI implants with Dynamic Thread® enable excellent primary stability and reliable osseointegration in all bone classes. In class III and IV soft bone, this is achieved using optimum bone compression. In contrast, hollow spaces in class I and II hard bone are created in a circular arrangement around the implant core, which then fill with blood, stem cells and bone chips, allowing for quick callus formation.
SDS1.1 – The hybrid ceramic implant system consisting of TZP (tetragonal zirconia polycrystal) combines the advantages of one and two-piece zirconia implants
SDS1.1 implants made of the continuously improved material TZP (tetragonal zirconia polycrystal) use an optimised production process to achieve all new mechanical strength properties in this material segment.
SDS1.1 implants are provided with an optimised "SLA®-similar" surface (surface additively blasted with zirconia). SDS1.1 implants have Dynamic Thread®, which is tried and tested in all bone classes. Dynamic Thread® performs very well in all situations, including when using the SCC (Short Cut Concept®).
The abutment design is so small that one-piece SDS1.1 implants can heal without special protective measures (with or without a healing cap). The abutment can also be ground deep into the tulip area (to extend the abutment) and then used as a standard abutment for cementing crown/bridge treatments, without additional work steps being required after direct impression. Both the impression posts and the prosthetic parts of the implant, such as the healing or temporary implant cap, can be simply “clicked” into place or removed again by means of the groove milled into the abutment. The abutment is also designed as a Locator™ patrix and can be used for detachable work with Locator™ matrices (in this case, please do not grind). In addition, the SDS1.1 abutment also has an interior screw thread. The screwed insertion tool thus enables fast transfer into the oral cavity. Accessory parts or ready-made abutments can also be screwed on directly.
SDS2.0 – The two-piece implant system made of TZP (tetragonal zirconia polycrystal)
SDS2.0 implants made of the continuously improved material TZP (tetragonal zirconia polycrystal) use an optimised production process to achieve all new mechanical strength properties in this material segment.
SDS2.0 implants are provided with an optimised "SLA®-similar" surface (surface additively blasted with zirconia). SDS2.0 implants have Dynamic Thread®, which is tried and tested in all bone classes. Dynamic Thread® performs very well in all situations, including when using the SCC (Short Cut Concept®).
SDS2.0 – The two-piece implant system based on over 15 years of experience in the development of ceramic implants. The load-bearing upper part of the implant and the implant abutment connection have a very solid design. The connection is not within the implant, but in the lower part of the abutment, the tulip-shaped part, with the cementing and screwing process creating a highly sturdy, one-piece implant that holds the crown at tissue level. As a result, there are no moveable parts and only one bacteria-proof connection point. This guarantees perfect results in terms of periodontal hygiene.
The stepped implant design and tried and tested self-tapping Dynamic Thread® is very effective in all bone classes and indications. Its two-piece design allows for concealed healing along with high success rates, especially in the posterior region.
Three diﬀerent abutment types:
(15° angle, straight and straight + 1.5 mm) are available, plus a choice of three different screw types (Gold/Elasticor®, titanium and PEKK/Pekkton® metal-free).
