What is Camlog?
Camlog is one of the market-leading implant systems for the supply of dentures in the form of dental implants and abutments. Camlog not only describes the special type of implant, but also a company that manufactures various implant systems. The Camlog offer is divided into two implant systems, SCREW-LINE and PROGRESSIVE-LINE. Both systems are equipped with the tube-in-tube connection patented by Camlog.
The tube-in-tube principle with the three interlocking grooves and cams creates a very precise, stable and rotationally secured implant-abutment connection. Long-term success is guaranteed and scientifically documented. Due to its prosthetic simplicity, Camlog is a popular system in surgery.
How do the two types of implants differ?
SCREW-LINE implants are slightly conical, self-tapping screw implants. They allow easy insertion through self-centering with continuous bone contact and thus achieve solid primary stability. The rounded tip of the implant enables it to be inserted in a way that is gentle on the bones.
In contrast to the SCREW-LINE, the PROGESSIVE-LINE has its strength in the external geometry. Thanks to a very voluminous thread, implantation in very soft bone is possible without any problems and avoids additional treatment steps.
The SCREW-LINE implants are available in diameters of 3.3 mm, 3.8 mm, 4.3 mm, 5 mm and 6 mm. PROGRESSIVE-LINE implants are available in diameters of 3.8 mm, 4.3 mm, 5 mm and 6 mm. Camlog implants are available in lengths of 9 mm, 11 mm, 13 mm and 16 mm. The dentist decides which size is suitable after carefully examining the conditions in the jaw.
Special feature of the Camlog implant system
The external threads have a coated surface made of titanium plasma. The so-called promote surface of the Camlog implant is a blasted and simultaneously acid-etched surface, which guarantees healing times in the bone of up to six weeks.
By machining the Camlog implants, tolerances can be kept very low, resulting in excellent accuracy of fit.
What can the implant be used for?
The Camlog implants are suitable for all restorations that are carried on implants - including cemented crown and bridge constructions, as well as implant-supported full dentures or telescopic restorations.
