BioHorizons™ Tapered 3.0 dental Implants
The Tapered Internal 3.0 dental implant system offers all the great benefits of BioHorizons highly successful Laser-Lok™ 3.0 dental implant, but features a buttress thread on an anatomically tapered body with a Laser-Lok treated collar for bone and soft tissue attachment.
Features of the Tapered Internal 3.0 Implant System
Precision engineered Laser-Lok collar shown to promote oblique connective tissue attachment, much like a natural tooth.
Anatomically tapered implant body has proprietary reverse buttress threads with wide flat leading edges for increased stability.
45° conical internal hex connection is color-coded for quick identification and component matching.
Laser-Lok™: better science, better implants
Control cellular migration - control esthetic outcomes
Only the Laser-Lok surface has been shown using light microscopy, polarized light microscopy and scanning electron microscopy to also be effective for soft tissue attachment. 1,2
"There is no other implant that shows functional orientation of fibers. There is not one. This is the only one. This is so important." 3
