the difference

The patented design of Ankylos® implants is very different to any other implant. The prosthodontic platform,recieving the crown, is intentionally above the implant shoulder. Therefore the surgeon has the option of choosing the diameter of the implant according to the existing bone supply as it no longer determines the diameter of the implant crown. This way the patient may not need excessive surgery such as bone harvesting and grafting if there is a lack of bone. Additionally the platform switching design of Ankylos® increases the amount of soft tissue masking the titanium abutment perfectly, even in presence of thin soft tissues.
