Removable dentures may be a hassle for many patients for a number of reasons. Constant movement, discomfort and pain at times lead to patients choosing not to wear their dentures at all. This, of course, has a great impact on their quality of life and self-confidence.
Dental implants are a very effective solution to this problem when they are used for a fixed restoration of a completely toothless jaw. Placing four or more implants, as a base supporting a removable restoration (a bridge) is the ultimate solution for those who wish to improve their chewing ability and speech, and ultimately enjoy a better quality of life.
With life-expectancy on the rise, and an ever growing aging population effected by edentulism, there is a very real and serious need for quality and affordable long-term solutions. The new MIS LOCKiT system was designed to answer these needs, maintaining a high level of quality, patient comfort and affordability. The system features a concave emergence profile, anodized color-coding for easy identification during workflow, is PVD coated and is available for MIS internal hex. and conical connections.
OT-Equators are the smallest overdenture and removable denture attachments on the market. The low-profile design and wide variety of retentive options make them ideal for all clinical scenarios; especially where there are space limitations. OT-Equator attachments feature a Titanium Nitride (TiN) coating for maximum resistance to wear, a small-scale metal housing and replaceable nylon inserts suitable for various retention levels. Retention inserts can be replaced easily within seconds.
Ball attachments are designed to increase retention of (partial) overdentures, supported on implants. MIS titanium Ball Attachments provide firm retention and stabilization of the overdenture when used with tissue-supported implant-retained overdentures and are compatible with MIS internal hex. and conical connection implants.
