Why search further?

Continuing to challenge with sound science. By searching further, we can provide evidence demonstrating biological sustainability, leading to optimal dental implant treatment outcomes. 

We search further because we are committed to sound science, providing biological sustainability for a world where everyone can eat, speak and smile with confidence. Let’s take a closer look...

Our philosophy - outperforming with sound science

You can count on Dentsply Sirona Implants for solid scientific documentation and reliable clinical results. Our products have been documented for a range of clinical indications, surgical applications and prosthetic solutions. The data present exceptional results for efficacy and reliability including:

High implant and prosthetic success and survival rates.

Maintained marginal bone levels and healthy peri-implant soft tissues.

High accuracy of implant placement for computer-guided implant treatment.

High osseoconductive and resorbable properties of our regenerative materials.

Ongoing clinical research and product development is directed towards treatment of more demanding and advanced situations, as well as towards alternative protocols for increased patient comfort during treatment.

These efforts are supported by the important information we get from pre-clinical in vitro and in vivo studies. Today, our comprehensive study program includes more than 2 000 published, scientific references.

Scientific news

Newly published results with Dentsply Sirona Implants products

Clinical success in a long-term perspective

The Ankylos implant system has been evaluated in >4,000 patients with follow-up of up to 20 years, showing high implant survival rate and low rate of peri-implant bone loss.

Simplicity without compromise

The new Astra Tech Implant System EV has been developed to make the daily work easier, without making any compromises to the clinical outcome. Now the first published randomized controlled clinical trial with OsseoSpeed EV implants can show good clinical outcome with minimal bone remodeling after 1 year of follow-up.

Reliability and safety for your patients

The Xive implant system has been in clinical use for more than a decade. Long-term clinical documentation is one of the most important tools when discussing reliability and safety of an implant system. Excellent clinical outcome with low complication rates are here shown in 3 independent long-term follow-up studies.
