T3® Implants

Contemporary hybrid surface provided by complex multi-surface topography

Seal integrity provided by a stable and tight implant/abutment interface

Integrated platform switching provided by a medialized implant/abutment junction

T3 Short Implants: The T3 Short Implant’s length and features are designed to provide an implant treatment option in some challenging clinical cases where the bone height is insufficient for standard length implants.

 

Contemporary hybrid surface provided by complex multi-surface topography

  • Coarse And fine micron surface features create an average mean surface roughness value Of 1.4μm1

Seal integrity provided by a stable and tight implant/abutment interface

  • A stable, tight implant/abutment interface minimizes abutment micromotion and reduces potential microleakage.2

Integrated platform switching provided by a medialized implant/abutment junction

  • Integrated platform switching medializes the implant/abutment junction (IAJ) inward, creating a biologic width between connective tissue and the IAJ, helping to maintain bone levels.3

The T3 Short Implant’s length and features are designed to provide an implant treatment option in some challenging clinical cases where the bone height is insufficient for standard length implants.

The Clinical Challenge:In areas with minimal bone height, providing implant treatment may require complex surgical procedures, such as:

  • A sinus lift procedure in the maxilla
  • Vertical ridge augmentation in the mandible due to the proximity to the mandibular nerve
