Southern Implants has been a pioneer in the top-end specialist sector of the dental implant market since 1987, servicing maxillofacial and craniofacial surgeons, prosthodontists, periodontists and general dental practitioners alike.
Co-Axis® is the first threaded dental implant with an angled prosthetic platform correction.
This innovative design from Southern Implants allows oral surgeons and other dental professionals to utilize existing bone while maintaining the restorative platform at an angle that ensures an optimal esthetic result.
Osseointegrated Fixtures System — Bone Anchors for Prosthetic Attachment
The Osseointegrated Fixtures system extends the use of osseointegrating implants from dental only applications, to the attachment of prosthetics outside the oral region. Osseointegrated Fixtures have been developed to enable the attachment of external aesthetic restoration prostheses when suction or adhesives are inadequate. This has been found to be useful for both craniofacial prostheses and prosthetic digits on the hand.
The Passive™ Abutment allows a predictable passive fit of superstructures in a repeatable way for both milled and cast restorations. This is accomplished by luting a pre-machined titanium interface into the finished prosthesis, using the laboratory master model.
This product is built on the premise that impeccable fit to the implant (minimizing microgap) is of great importance for longevity of implant treatment. The best milled interfaces result in 15 to 50 micron microgaps. Passive Abutments can be used with cast or milled abutments and structures, and reduce microgap to less than 3 microns.
The Southern Implants IT implant range, has an internal connection system, with an interface that has been proven by both Swiss and American manufacturers. The implant abutment interface consists of an external 45 degree bevel top, an internal octagon for anti-rotation and an 8 degree internal taper. Southern Implants manufactures these implants in both a cylindrical and tapered version, with the same surface treatment that is used with all our other implants.
Apart from providing a greater range of prosthetic options, we are very pleased to now be able to offer the MAXIT and the ITST12d Co-Axis™ implants.
Machined Surface Coronal (MSc) Dental Implants
The Machined Surface Coronal (MSc) dental implant surface treatment offers practitioners an innovative way to take advantage of the best characteristics of both smooth and moderately rough implant surfaces. A machined coronal region of specific surface roughness provides resistance against plaque and biofilm accumulation, and enhances the efficacy of preventive maintenance measures, thereby decreasing the risk of peri-implantitis. Meanwhile, the complementary moderately rough portion assures the superior osseointegration of modern surfaces. This hybrid surface design enables more predictable treatment of patients suffering from progressive bone loss.
Supporting Bone Growth – ZenGro™ is a porous bone mineral consisting predominantly of calcium phosphate that provides an ornate scaffolding to aid in bone growth.
ZenGuard Resorbable Membrane is a conformable collagen membrane manufactured from purified porcine peritoneum to aid in wound healing.
The concept of biocompatibility by itself has an essential purpose in the implant of permanent prosthetic elements inside the human body, but it is extremely restrictive in case of materials used for bone reconstruction. In the case of synthesized hydroxyapatite or natural bone hydroxyapatite derived from aggressive manufacturing processes, osteoclastic cellular response is slow, causing extremely prolonged resorption time.
Who We Are
Southern Implants was established in 1987 to develop, manufacture and distribute dental implants. Southern Implants has been a pioneer in this field over the last two decades and has contributed extensively to ongoing enhancements with respect to the osseointergration of implant devices, surgical techniques, patient education and options for treatment.
What We Create
Our company is focused on the top-end specialist sector of the implant market. Our product range is continually being expanded to incorporate the newest technologies and trends. Where many of our competitors are rationalizing their product range, Southern is offering more choices.
Southern are made from ASTM-F67-95 Grade 4 pure titanium, with a tensile strength of 550 MPa. This surface is enhanced with abrasion and chemical conditioning. The surface has been proven by way of extensive animal and clinical trials and has been in use for more than 16 years… Read More.
