Implant

Designed for
Immediate Placement
into a
Multi-rooted Molar Extraction Site

The MAX Implant Solution

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 with reduced bone height, inadequate for implant placement without a bone augmentation procedure.

The award-winning MAX dental implant features a unique thread and body shape designed to achieve primary stability from engagement with the interradicular bone. The end result is an optimal implant that minimizes bone loss and reduces treatment time.

What the MAX fixture did for me was that it allowed me to increase chances of being able to provide immediate molar replacement treatment for patients that needed immediate molar replacement. In the past we had to graft and come back and this increased appointments and reduced patient acceptance. MAX was also appealing to my referral base because they know that I can provide immediate molar replacement as an option as opposed to the traditional graft and wait approach.

I have been using MAX implants since 2010 and now I can say that it’s my first choice for immediate post extraction implant positioning in posterior area. With MAX you can achieve optimal primary stability, reduce hard and soft tissues remodeling for better prosthetic emergence profile. Going digital you can make a customised healing abutment reducing treatment time and costs with optimal aesthetic outcome.
