This lecture aims to provide insights into the important evidence-based choices made during the development and the clinical impact of this unique implant, based on clinical indications and cases.
The development of the V3 implant focused on the design of the conical connection and the titanium grade of all components, providing more bone where it matters most.
The V3 has a unique triangular neck design, resulting in minimal cortical bone compression, though ensuring excellent primary stability. This triangular shape also results in narrow chambers around the implant, allowing blood pooling and blood clot formation, thereby maintaining crestal bone vitality and enabling new bone growth. Placing the implant slightly sub-crestal even enhances more bone growth in these critical crestal bone areas. Sub-crestal placement, however, requires a very tight connection between implant and abutment, protecting the crestal bone from bacterial infiltration or micro-movement of the abutment.
