The surface of the ICX implants is sandblasted and high-temperature etched, which allows an osteophilic surface morphology with a bimodal structuring for reliable biological and mechanical anchorage of the bone with the material in the microscale.
The entire implant geometry of the ICX implant system has been developed according to the latest design and functional principles. High primary stability is achieved via the self-tapping apical thread. The unique, protected condensation thread in the middle to upper implant area ensures good compaction of the cancellous bone.
The microthread in the area of the implant neck establishes the desired cortical bone contact and thus ensures optimized, physiological force transmission in this area.
The slightly beveled, microrough surface of the implant shoulder allows permanent apposition of crestal bone in the shoulder region and thus promotes secure and permanent stability of the peri-implant bone level for the necessary stabilization of the soft tissue.
The platform switch also promotes better apposition of the bone and moves the implant-abutment interface further away from the biologically relevant bone interface.
