  • Patent number: 10231804
    Abstract: An implant is provided with an upper portion in which an internal socket extends. The implant can be tightened by a turning instrument which has first lateral surfaces that can cooperate with corresponding second lateral surfaces in the internal socket. One or more of the first and/or second lateral surfaces is/are arranged completely or partially with friction-enhancing means. The implant and the tool are arranged with interacting parts which extend beyond the first and second lateral surfaces and completely or substantially take up bending moments which act in or on said portion or are directed toward said portion and occur in the event of skewing, or a tendency toward skewing, between the implant and the tool. The arrangement counteracts mechanical stresses in said portion, the latter being able to retain its original shape even in the case of implants with small dimensions.

  • Patent number: 9561090
    Abstract: Methods of producing a dental product are disclosed. Certain methods include the steps of providing a pre-sintered blank made from a green body of ceramic material, performing a machining operation on the blank, and subsequently sintering the blank to its final density in a sintering operation performed at a temperature in the range of 1300° C. to 1650° C. The pre-sintered blank that is provided may have a strength in the range of 53-107 MPa.

  • Patent number: 9259299
    Abstract: In certain embodiments, a combination of a thread forming tool and an implant is disclosed. The thread forming tool can have a thread forming section with a helical thread having at least one cutting surface for cutting a thread in bone. The implant can include a bone apposition surface having at least one helical thread for position at least partially in the thread of the bone. A longitudinal cross-sectional shape of at least a portion of the helical thread of the thread forming section in certain embodiments, substantially corresponds to a longitudinal cross-sectional shape of at least a portion of the helical thread of the implant.

  • Patent number: 8915735
    Abstract: In an arrangement for obtaining reliable anchoring of a threaded implant (3) in dentine, a hole (2) is made in the bone substance. In the side wall (2b) of the hole it is possible to establish an internal threading which can cooperate with an external threading (3d) on the implant. The implant threading is arranged to force the bone substance out in essentially radial directions as a function of the extent to which the implant is screwed into the hole. The threading is arranged to effect greater forcing out of the bone substance at the outer parts of the hole than at the inner parts of the hole. The degree of forcing out is adapted in relation to the softness of the bone in order to achieve the reliable anchoring. Along at least part of the longitudinal direction of the implant, the implant threading can be given a non-circular configuration for the purpose of obtaining improved rotational stability in soft/weak bone.
