The present study confirms that the platform-switching concept can minimize marginal bone loss over a 1- year period, in agreement with a previous trial and recent meta-analysis. Specifically, average marginal bone loss around non–platform-switched implants (0.78 mm mesially and 0.90 mm distally) was more than twice the average marginal bone loss around platform-switched implants (0.30 mm mesially and 0.38 mm distally)
XGate Dental’s cone-like implant compresses the bone in a gradual fashion, while the special drilling blades at the bottom enable smooth and minimal osteotomy incisions. These features allow achieving high primary stability in difficult situations when there is soft bone or existing sockets from previous extractions. XGate Dental’s implants allow for immediate implant placement and enable functionality soon after the procedure.
XGate’s built-in platform switching system within the implant keeps it away from the bone, thereby minimizing bone resorption. Furthermore, it enables the crucial growth of the soft tissue.
