Over the past years, the biological and clinical performances of implant systems have constantly been improved. The key challenges in the design of implant systems have been addressed to increase primary stability, mechanical robustness, long-term implant survival as well as to improve the ease of use.
Out of the many different aspects that may influence the final clinical success, the surgical procedure is one of the major factors. When focusing specifically on the instrumentation of the osteotomy and implant insertion, an optimal surgical technique should ideally provide an adequate implant initial stability and, at the same time, prevent excessive heating or compressive trauma.
The digital workflow together with the seal of the implant-abutment interface contribute to the passive fit of the prosthetic reconstructions present predictable clinical outcomes.
To date, most clinical trials have reported comparable high implant survival rates, along with long-lasting function and aesthetics, which fully satisfies both the clinical expectations and the patient requirements.
