20120021381DENTAL IMPLANT AND DENTAL COMPONENT CONNECTION - A dental implant, components, and kit are provided. The implant can comprise a body, attachment means for attaching the implant to bone, and a recess. The recess can be disposed within the body and open towards a proximal end thereof. The recess can comprise a proximally-disposed receiving chamber and a distally-disposed threaded chamber. The receiving chamber can comprise an interlock chamber, which can be disposed at a distal end of the receiving chamber and have a polygonal cross-section. The implant can be multi-functional such that components for various dental prostheses and procedures can be provided having portions that can, for example, engage the interlock chamber of the implant, mate with the receiving chamber of the implant, and/or mate with the proximal end the implant for supporting the prosthesis and/or facilitating the procedure.01-26-2012
20130203017DENTAL IMPLANT APPARATUS, SCREW FOR DENTAL IMPLANT APPARATUS AND METHOD OF MAKING A SCREW - A dental implant apparatus including an implant having an external threaded wall adapted to be implanted in a patient's bone, said implant being provided with a cylindrical axial cavity having an internal thread accessible from a first end. The dental implant apparatus further includes a screw comprising a threaded stem adapted to be helicoidally coupled with the internal thread of said cavity of the implant, wherein said screw is a single piece made entirely of a NdFeB (Neodymium-Iron-Boron) compound comprising silicon.08-08-2013
20130209959INTER LOCKING IMPLANTS - The present invention relates to a method of joining two implants together so as to enhance the immediate stability of both implants, allowing immediate loading. Both implants are inserted in an angle to the jaw and are locked together, thus forming a compound structure that improves stability and enhances resistance to rotational, occlusal and lateral forces.08-15-2013
20130209960ASSEMBLY OF A DENTAL IMPLANT AND A PROSTHETIC ELEMENT - Assembly having a dental implant and a prosthetic element, which dental implant comprises a body arranged to be implanted in the jawbone, which prosthetic element comprises an intra-implant part and an extra-implant part, said body comprising an internal cavity intended to receive the intra-implant part of the prosthetic element, said prosthetic element being a single-piece element the intra-implant part of which is formed by a tenon, arranged to be sealed or glued in the cavity, and the extra-implant part of which is configured in the form of an attachment member arranged so as to apply a dental prosthesis directly thereto, said intra-implant part having an essentially smooth wall provided with at least one discharge groove.08-15-2013
