Dentsply Friadent is a company that has been providing top quality implant products to patients across the world for 30 years. The company attended a research programme in Germany in 1974 in order to develop the skills to create a ceramic implant, including the Ankylos implants. Ankylos implants are known for their top mechanical and predictable stability. Ankylos is the most authoritative system, strong and designed for long-term stability. The Ankylos connection principle, clinically proven for decades, is designed for initial and long-term tissue stability. The extremely accurate TissueCare Connection has virtually no micromovement and is almost totally bacteria-proof. And it is also keyed and friction-locked to prevent bone resorption and to ensure stable and healthy soft tissue.
The unique TissueCare Connection transfers the transition between implant and abutment to the interior of the implant and prevents mechanical influences on it and microbial attack on the peri-implant tissue. It provides additional space for the surrounding soft tissue. The keyed principle allows subcrestal placement, and the microstructured implant shoulder makes deposition of bone cells easy – for additional support of the overlying soft tissue. ANKYLOS establishes the best conditions. The progressive thread design makes it easy to screw the implants into position and enhances tissue retention. With the keyed and friction-locked TissueCare Connection Ankylos acts as a single-component implant with all the advantages of the two-component implant: surgery and prosthetics are completely independent of each other. And it also has only one diameter for all prosthetic components: any abutment can be combined with any implant as desired. It requires less storage. It is economical and it gives an optimum prosthetic result.
