mission & values

clinical evidence

To assess how BioHorizons implants can benefit patients, several human studies were sponsored with long-term follow-up out to 10 years. Several clinical scenarios were used to determine how effective BioHorizons implants are when: immediately placed,4 immediately loaded,5,6,15 used in the posterior maxilla,8 used in sinus augmentations,9 used in poor-quality bone and used in patients with compromised immune systems.16 BioHorizons implants were shown to have an extremely high survival rate (99.2% average),1-10 excellent bone-to-implant contact15 and minimal bone loss.3,6,8,17

science

BioHorizons is dedicated to developing evidence-based and scientifically proven products. From the launch of the External implant system (Maestro) in 1997, to the more recent launches of Tapered Pro and Tapered PTG, dental professionals as well as patients have confidence in our comprehensive portfolio of dental implants and biologics products.

In vitro validation

Laboratory tests were conducted to evaluate the amount of load implants can sustain both in static and fatigue. Whether evaluating the implant connection of the Maestro11 or the implant design of the One-piece 3.0,12 BioHorizons implants have been shown to rank at the top when compared to competitive designs.

In vivo research

To evaluate various features of the implants including thread design and implant surface, a series of preclinical studies focused on bone response. These studies show it was shown that the BioHorizons thread design and implant surface exhibit higher bone-to-implant contact13,14 and greater reverse torque measurements14 than designs typically used by other companies.
