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.
