Astra Tech Implant System – Surgery

Astra Tech Implant System provides dental professionals with easy-to-implement procedures that ensure successful implant treatment and implant restoration.

Surgical procedures

The OsseoSpeed TX implants have been developed and extensively documented for both one- and two-stage surgical procedures. All implants from Astra Tech Implant System are designed to allow for indexing. The Conical Seal Design of the Astra Tech Implant System allows for a strong and stable implant-abutment connection. 

OsseoSpeed TX procedure

Regardless of the pre-operative planning and choice of surgical protocol, the treatment with dental implants includes a site preparation and installation of the implant. The following is an overview of an implant site preparation according to the standard drilling protocol for the installation of OsseoSpeed TX implants 4.5 and
4.0 S. All drilling should be performed at a speed of 1500 rpm and under profuse irrigation.

OsseoSpeed TX Profile procedure

OsseoSpeed TX Profile implants require specific protocols for site preparation, osteotomy measuring and implant placement, in addition to the surgical procedures necessary for OsseoSpeed TX implants.

The following is an overview of an implant site preparation according to the standard drilling protocol for the installation of OsseoSpeed TX Profile implant 5.0.


The following features of our dental implants are parts of the Astra Tech Implant System BioManagement Complex:

  • OsseoSpeed – a unique fluoride-modified nanostructure implant surface that stimulates early bone formation and provides stronger bone-to-implant bonding.
  • MicroThread – minute threads on the implant neck that offer optimal load distribution and stress values.

The tapered apex of Astra Tech Implant System makes implant installation easier in all situations, but especially in soft bone when underpreparation is desired.

OsseoSpeed TX

The full range of OsseoSpeed TX implants covers all indications, including cases with limited vertical bone height, the replacement of maxillary laterals and mandibular incisors with narrow horizontal space, and both anterior and posterior situations. 

One connection – three sizes 




















3.0 S  Small   3.5 S 4.0 S Large   4.5 5.0 5.0 S

For easy inventory management and identification, labels and components are color-coded referring to the size of the implant-abutment connection. 

OsseoSpeed TX Profile 

The OsseoSpeed TX Profile is a uniquely shaped, patented implant, specifically designed for sloped ridge situations that allows you to achieve 360° bone preservation around the implant, regardless of the position in the mouth. 


Treatment planning

To achieve the desired outcome of your restorative treatment, it is essential to develop treatment planning methodologies based on your individual patient’s dental morphology, function, hygiene and esthetics.

Dentsply Sirona Implants offers tools that can provide you with important information for planning the optimal implant treatment:

Simplant – computer guided implant treatment

Simplant dental planning software provides the clinician with accurate and predictable surgery options. It enables the clinician to assess the patient’s anatomy and see exactly how it relates to the proposed restoration.

Radiographic Implant Guides

These transparent guides can be used to superimpose implant images upon radiographs in order to help you plan implant placement. Guides are implant specific and provide different magnifications that correspond to the radiograph magnification.
