The bodies of the RePlus and ReActive implants are tapered evenly from the top to facilitate insertion into an undersized socket in soft bone providing compression that increases initial stability (G. Niznick: Clinical Oral Health 2000 “Achieving Success in Soft Bone”). Mini-threads start 1.0mm below the crest of the bone and extend approximately 2.0mm before transitioning into double-lead threads to the apex of the implant. The mini-threads, half the depth and pitch of the double-lead body threads, reduce stress in the critical crestal bone region, while double-lead threads reduce the number of turns required to seat the implant. Vertical cutting grooves extend halfway up the implant from the apex for self-tapping insertion.
All three implants are available with SBM textured surface over the entire implant, and HA is an option for ReActive.
