LEADER Italia Implants: Discussion on an Innovative Surface Technology
Posted By osseonews On January 2, 2011 @ 7:41 pm In Dental Implant Systems,Dental Implants Q&A | Comments Disabled
LEADER ITALIA srl was founded in 1996. The company currently has two implant lines which were developed subsequent to extensive research on surface geometry. LEADER’s traditional implant line is called B.O.A.T., for Biological Organic Acid Treatment. The surface is characterized by even microcavities that stimulate fast bone formation. A newer line of implants, called the TiXos Line, is produced thru a Laser Microfused Titanium Powder manufacturing process, i.e. LST laser technique (Laser Sintered Titanium).
Basically, with the LST technique the desired implant model is produced by sintering nano particles of metal powder by a focused laser beam. The implants are computer designed and the resulting surface is characterized by intercommunicating cavities that interlock with the host bone. The cavities geometry and connections, 2 to 100 micron, are accurately selected during the project stage. This geometry allows bone penetration deep inside the implant body, creating pits and pores that are colonized by bone cells.
According to the company,
In vitro studies carried out by University of Birmingham (UK), researched conducated by Universities in Varese and Chieti (Italy) and clinical-histological trials carried out on animals and humans by University of Guarulhos, Sao Paulo (Brazil), have demonstrated the capability of these implants to accelerate bone healing thus improving fast osseointegration.
Predetermined surface geometry with interconnected cavities and pores.
We were wondering if anyone has any comments on LEADER Italia implants, and particularly the new TiXos Line which utilizes the LST Laser technique? Specifically, do you think these implants are well suited for immediate loading?
