MAX Dental Implants
The MAX tapered dental implant system is the first to allow for immediate placement into a multi-rooted molar extraction site.
A conventional implant is not suited for immediate placement in the molar extraction socket. As a result, waiting periods of three to four months are necessary to allow for healing of the socket prior to implant placement. Often, the healed extraction site presents reduced bone height, inadequate for implant placement without a bone augmentation procedure.
The award-winning MAX dental implant systems feature a body with a larger-than-conventional diameter to fill the molar site, ultimately achieving primary stability from engagement with the inter-radicular bone.. With tapered dental implant bodies and an enhanced surface, the MAX tapered dental implant is designed to fit the natural shape of the molar socket. The end result is an optimal implant fit in the multi-rooted immediate extraction site that minimizes bone loss and reduces treatment time.
