The MAX Implants

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.

Stability

Strong taper designed to achieve optimum primary stability

Collar

Bevelled machined collar minimizing plaque adhesion

Built-in Platform Shift

Prosthetic platform shift in each of the available configurations

High Strength Titanium

Enables exceptional fatigue strength functionality

Rounded Apex

Avoid perforation of the sinus membrane

SInergy™ Surface

Alumina-blasted surface with over 20 years of clinical results

  • Available with connection interfaces External Hex, Tri-Nex, Internal Octagon, Deep Conical and M-Series (Internal Hex)
  • 12°, 24° or 36° platform correction angle, dependent on range and diameter
  • Tapered body
  •  Diameters ranging from 3.25-6.00mm
  • Lengths ranging from 8.5-18mm
  • Surface roughened by Alumina blasting and chemically conditioned, giving a moderately rough surface with 15 years evidence of clinical success
  •  Available fully surface roughened or with MSc (Machined Surface Coronal) hybrid surface (External Hex & Provata Internal Hex)
  • Ideal for immediate placement after extraction
  • Reduced need for bone grafting
  • Increased patient acceptance
  • Increased parallelism in multi-implant cases
  • Ability to use standard surgical protocol and instrumentation
  • Optimised orientation allows for simplified restoration
  • Predictable aesthetics, especially in the anterior
  • Allows for screw-retained restorations
  • Reduces laboratory and component costs
  • Allows for the use of standard prosthetic components

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.

The MAX implant is specially engineered for restoring molar sites with an appropriately high loadbearing implant. Its unique design results in an implant which achieves favourable primary stability in extraction sockets and healed ridges alike.

MAX implants: a vital tool in any implant practice. They make immediate molar implant placement possible in even the most unlikely of clinical scenarios. Use of MAX implants reduce the need for sinus augmentations, thereby reducing cost, complexity and treatment duration for patients. They provide a wide platform for ideal emergence profile, huge strength, and allow impressive primary stability. A win-win for surgeon and patient. I would not be without them.
