BioHPP SKY elegance - The smart type of single tooth immediate restoration -

With BioHPP SKY elegance, the bredent group offers an innovative and new prosthetic option for im-mediate restoration of single teeth. Since BioHPP SKY elegance both provides the flexibility of a temporary plastic abutment and the durable implant-superstructure connection of a definitive abut-ment, replacement of the abutment is no longer required (one-time therapy). The resulting advantage lies in the fact that adhered soft tissue is not destroyed. The elasticity of the high performance polymer BioHPP that features a gap-free bond with a titanium base ensures reliable osseointegration during the healing phase and the screw that is seated in titanium creates a durable and stable connection. Various clinical studies have demonstrated that BioHPP enables better soft tissue apposition than titanium.

The reason for this is the thin cortical bones that cannot support the miniSKY implant adequately. (Poster white et al. Scientific Book 2012).

A new study confirms that disinfection with the HELBO system prior to immediate implantation safeguards the success of the treatment

The scientific community now agrees that patients who have a previous history of periodontitis also have a significantly higher risk of suffering from peri-implantitis after implantation is carried out. This risk is particularly high if the implants are inserted immediately after the extraction of the remaining teeth, as is the case with the SKY fast & fixed treatment concept, for example. The benefits of quick implant-based and prosthetic care of patients within one day are overshadowed by the disadvantage of a potential transmission of infection from infected residual teeth to the implants, causing the formation of retrograde peri-implantitis and, often, a sequestrum as well. ...
