If threads are not exposed, why should you regenerate?

Inserting an implant in thin crests can be difficult, especially when the endosseous threads naturally emerge from the geometry and volumes of the receiving bone. In those cases it is necessary to resort to graft material to cover the exposed threads, then protecting the site with membranes and suturing to allow a primary intention healing.

The Prama implant, for the particular morphology of the neck, can instead be placed deeper, submerging the whole treated surface, thus placing the threads entirely into the bone, where there is a suitable thickness to cover them: the convergent portion of the neck will fit different anatomies of the bone, allowing more space to soft tissues, in a single surgical procedure.
