NeoLoc Neoss Implant Abutment Connection
NeoLoc® is the unique Neoss® implant to abutment connection that offers the advantages of a remarkably strong and tight connection, proven long-term clinical success, high levels of bone preservation and the ‘one connection’ concept.
- Outstanding Performance
- Unparalleled Strength
- One Connection
- Advanced Esthetics
NeoLoc – A Strong Connection
The key to a successful long-term tooth replacement is a mechanical integrity of all the components that make up a complete implant pillar. The intelligent design of the Neoss Implant System features NeoLoc, combining an interference fit, an implant with unparalleled strength1 and a high performance abutment screw.
Neoss Abutment Interference Fit
Neoss engaging abutments incorporate an interference fit, utilizing deformation lugs which minimize rotational movements and secures a distinct seating.
Crystaloc High Performance Abutment Screw
Crystaloc™ makes use of high strength Grade V titanium alloy onto which a hard coating is applied. A layer of gold is then deposited on this hard crystalline surface.
The soft gold coating on the Crystaloc layer acts as a lubricant reducing friction and increasing the clamping force between the abutment and implant. The Crystaloc screw has an approximately 50% higher pre-load than conventional titanium abutment screws of the same geometry.
Crystaloc abutment screws are also 30% stronger than gold screws in static strength testing facilitating a high clamping force between the abutment and implant.2
Historical warranty data shows that Neoss implants have an unprecedented low fracture rate1 with less than 1 fractured implant per 10,000 implants.
NeoLoc – One Connection
Intelligent Simplicity is the key philosophy of the Neoss Implant System. With the ‘one connection’ concept at its core, restoration is made easy and communication is simplified among the dental team.
Neoss offers one connection for ProActive® Straight and ProActive® Tapered Implant diameters Ø3.5mm to Ø6.0mm.
- ONE insertion tool
- ONE impression coping
- ONE prosthetic connection
NeoLoc® – Advanced Esthetics
Preservation of Marginal Bone
The smooth surface on the implant flange (~2mm) and the stability of the implant abutment connection has resulted in outstanding clinical results with minimal marginal bone resorption. The Neoss Implant System demonstrates 0.2-0.7mm of bone resorption in all clinical papers published.3
The Neoss implant to abutment interface is designed to optimize soft tissue retention by the creation of an emergence profile where the abutment seating is narrower than the implant flange diameter, commonly referred to as platform switching.
The long-term esthetic result is governed by soft tissue stability based on the preservation of marginal bone and the retention of soft tissue. The Esthetiline Solution further enhances the esthetic outcome by providing components that maintain the emergence profile through healing, provisional and final restoration stages of treatment.
