Abstract

The sinusoidal thread design of the LaminOss (Impladent Ltd, Holliswood, NY) osteocompressive immediate-load implant is structured with minimal shear interface to function in horizontal planes and stimulate bone growth by the action of streaming potentials at the implant thread surface area. This implant design, when used with a unique surgical instrumentation technique, allows maximum bone to be molded and compacted circumferentially around the sinusoidal implant threads. The surgical technique of bone lamination around larger implant horizontal planes (or load-bearing areas) creates a stable foundation for placing this implant into immediate function. For the past 10 years this surgical procedure has provided patients with immediate function the day of implant placement. The clinical advantage of immediate implant loading enhances care acceptance and patient satisfaction.
