T3 Implant is Designed to Deliver Aesthetic Results Through Tissue Preservation Built for stability and optimized placement.

  • Contemporary Hybrid Surface - Provided by complex multi-surface topography
  • Seal Integrity - Provided by a stable and tight implant/abutment interface
  • Integrated Platform Switching - Provided by a medialized  implant/abutment junction

Contemporary Hybrid Surface

Coarse and Fine Micron Surface Features Create an Average Mean Surface Roughness Value of 1.4 μm in the Threaded Portion of the Implant.14

  • Coarse and fine micron features
  • Fine micron features on the implant collar
  • Option for nano-scale features along the full length of the implant

Seal Integrity

A stable, tight implant/abutment interface minimizes abutment micromotion  and reduces potential microleakage.15

  • Seal integrity test was performed by Biomet 3i July 2011 - June 2012. In order to test the implant systems, a dynamic - loading leakage test was developed and executed. The test set-up was adapted from ISO14801, Dentistry - Implants - Dynamic Fatigue Test for Endosseous Dental Implants.
  • Five samples each of the three competitive implant systems were evaluated.
  • The mean seal strength (N) at which each of the systems leaked or fractured is detailed in the graph. 
  • Bench test results are not necessarily indicative of clinical performance.

Integrated Platform Switching

Bone remodeling with integrated platform switching

Integrated platform switching medializes the implant/abutment junction (IAJ) inward, creating a biologic width between connective tissue and the IAJ, helping to maintain bone levels.20

  • Reduced crestal bone loss
  • Reduction in crestal bone remodeling vs. non  platform-switched implants22

T3® Short Implants

Implant Treatment Options for Vertical Height Deficiencies

The T3 Short Implant’s length and features are designed to provide an implant treatment option in some challenging clinical cases where the bone height is insufficient for standard length implants.

The Clinical Challenge:

In areas with minimal bone height, providing implant treatment may require complex surgical procedures, such as:

  •  A sinus lift procedure in the maxilla
  •  Vertical ridge augmentation in the mandible due to the proximity to the mandibular nerve

Surgical Kit

  • Everything needed to place a T3 Short Implant in one compact kit
  • Instrumentation specific to the T3 Short Implants 
  • The drilling sequence undersizes the osteotomy in diameter by 1.15 mm 
  • 5.0 mm diameter implants: Yellow Path
  • 6.0 mm diameter implants: Green Path
