Restore your patients’ natural beauty with confidence by placing OCO Biomedical’s Esthetic Region Implant (ERI) designed for predictable placement in the esthetic zone. The ERI can be placed conventionally with healing cuffs or, in most cases, the ERI allows for a patient to receive a temporary restoration in less than an hour because of our patented implant body design and simple placement protocol.
The ERI’s low profile titanium nitride Embedded Tapered Platform™ camouflages itself under the gingiva (and eliminates grey titanium bleed through). Placed at the “proven confidence level” (slightly above bone level), the Embedded Tapered Platform™ eliminates bone loss and compensates for uneven crestal bone.
Dual Stabilization™ Technology
The ERI’s self-tapping implant body is the same as the proven ISI Complete® one-piece and TSI two-piece implants. The ERI maximizes thread to bone fixation and is stabilized at the tip and collar through Dual Stabilization®, a unique design feature that allows for immediate loading.
Dual Stabilization® is established when the implant is torqued at placement; the ERI’s patented Bull Nose Auger™ tip bottoms out, the extra half turn pulls bone up around the tip creating tension on the bone; tension on bone stimulates bone growth. The mini Cortic-O Thread® locks into the cortical bone at the crest of the ridge, thereby completing the biomechanical lock and achieving Dual Stabilization®. The abutment is resistant to normal, lateral occlusal forces because of this biomechanical lock.
