For the last 7 years I have been using Co-Axis® for various indications. I can honestly say, I don’t know how I managed 20 years in the implant dentistry without it. Managing anterior aesthetics and full arch rehabilitations without Co-Axis® will always be a compromised case. The gain in soft tissue in the anterior zone using Co-Axis® helps with maintaining a good outcome long term. If you have not tried Co-Axis® implants I recommend you do!

Co-Axis® has been not so much a game changer but rather a whole new game. A better, more fun and more predictable game.
The way I can place down the centre of the ridge, utilizing the very best bone, but at the same time, create an ideal screw access, and an implant emergence to die for! I would never go back to not having Co-Axis® in my implant toolbox.

The use of Co-Axis® in combination with Southern’s site specific implant range is a game changer in implant dentistry.

From single implants to full arch reconstructions, the flexibility of the 12°, 24° and 36° implant range ensures optimal implant positioning while utilising the available bone.

As a zygomatic surgeon, the 55° zygomatic implant range (in combination with the machined surface) significantly reduces the palatal positioning historically linked to this technique.

Immediate Implant Placement (IIP) is one of the critical treatment options I offer my patients.

Being able to provide screw retained crowns in every situation is an essential part of the treatment. The position of the tooth in the arch determines the ideal position of the implant.

In many cases a screw retained option is not possible without the use of a Co-Axis® implant. It has become a critical part of my implant dentistry.

Co-Axis® is one of the most ingenious concepts in dental implantology. It is a gift to any implant restorative dentist.

Since using Co-Axis® we have not done a cement retained restoration for the last 15 years and I would never want to be without it for as long as I practice.

Co-Axis® implants account for at least 80% of my implant use over the last 15 years. I can achieve minimal surgery for both immediate and delayed placements saving my patients additional augmentations and costs. The Co-Axis® is my fantastic “go-to” implant solution for the advanced and complex treatments.

Co-Axis® has changed everything. After placing thousands of uniaxial implants, transitioning to Co-Axis® has allowed me a means of screw retention implantology and reduced pressure on supra-crestal tissues. Co-Axis® has become the standard method of treatment. I could not imagine giving this up after 5 years of success!

One of the most common causes of soft tissue inflammation that can potentially lead to peri-implantitis and implant loss is traces of cement that escape during the fitting of cement retained implant restorations. Southern Implants offers a solution, the Co-Axis® implant, that allow us to surgically position our implants into existing bone, avoiding complex grafting procedures and at the same time, ending up with screw retained restorations with all the known benefits.

On our quest to offer simple solutions to complex full arch cases, we use implants placed in an angulated fashion (tilted). In order to make them restorable, it becomes necessary to attach angulated multi unit abutments and correct their emergence profile. A problem we face is that one side of the implant – and of the multi-unit abutment – is submerged into bone which is not an issue initially. It becomes a problem when the multi-unit abutment becomes loose with time (not a question of if, but when) and then bone resorption occurs due to chronic inflammation. Using Southern Implants Co-Axis® with an angulated platform built-in allows the placement of the implant platform at crestal level.

Co-Axis® is about getting the engineering right. Tilting implants without in-implant axis correction, is simply bad engineering, that manifests with greater rates of complications.

Co-Axis® is indispensable to me as it allows me to use the best available bone while maintaining perfect screw access for my implant restorations. It allows immediate implant placement in situations that would not have been possible previously, is biomechanically superior to angled multi-unit abutments as well as uses less prosthetic space. This allows me to be far more conservative in my full arch surgery. Having placed hundreds of Co-Axis® implants, I could not imagine going back to the old way!
