BioHorizons™ Tapered PTG Implants

Expanding clinical protocols

BioHorizons Tapered PTG implants support full-arch treatment in severely resorbed maxillae and provide an alternative to grafting, potentially expediting treatment.1
Developed in a 4.2mm diameter with 15 and 18mm lengths, the implants feature a unique, dual-tapered body with aggressive buttress threads, suitable for engagement during angled placement in the posterior maxilla. This approach maximizes AP spread for full arch restorations, while maintaining high implant stability.

Features at a glance

  • Dual tapered body and aggressive threads provide stability in the pterygomaxillary region
  • Reduced apical diameter allows for precise placement of the implant apex
  • Unique Laser-Lok® microchannels create connective tissue attachment and retain crestal bone
  • Osteotomy matched collar preserves vital bone

Tapered PTG

Features of the Tapered PTG Implant System

Reduced collar

Preserves vital bone and prevents deviation during placement.

Laser-Lok™ microchannels

Precision engineered Laser-Lok collar shown to promote oblique connective tissue attachment, much like a natural tooth.

Progressive threads

Dynamically engages bone during placement, providing stability in varying bone densities.

Narrow apex

Dual-tapered design reduces the apical diameter, allowing for precise placement in complicated sites.

Restorative ease

45° conical internal hex connection is color-coded for quick identification and component matching.

Color-coded platforms

Color-coded platform and prosthetics increase safety and makes restorative procedures fast and accurate.

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. 2,3

"There is no other implant that shows functional orientation of fibers. There is not one. This is the only one. This is so important." 4
