Laser-Lok Technology SEM image at 39X showing the Laser-Lok zone on a BioHorizons Tapered Plus implant. Laser-Lok at 800X exhibits consistently formed microchannels to organizeand promote tissue growth.2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,16,17 The uniformity of the Laser-Lok microstructure and nanostructure is evident using extreme magnification. Laser-Lok overview Laser-Lok microchannels is a proprietary dental implant surface treatment developed from over 25 years of research initiated to create the optimal implant surface. Through this research, the unique Laser-Lok surface has been shown to elicit a...

over 25 years of research Different than other surface treatments Virtually all dental implant surfaces on the market are grit-blasted and/or acid-etched. These manufacturing methods create random surfaces that vary from point to point on the implant and alter cell reaction depending on where each cell comes in contact with the surface.10 While random surfaces have shown higher osseointegration than machined surfaces,11 only the Laser-Lok surface has been shown using light microscopy, polarized light microscopy and scanning electron microscopy to also be effective for soft tissue...

Laser-Lok Technology Histology of a Laser-Lok abutment on an RBT implant with a machined collar showing exceptional bone growth at 3 months.6 Latest discoveries The establishment of a physical, connective tissue attachment to the Laser-Lok surface has generated an entirely new area of research and development: Laser-Lok applied to abutments. This provides an opportunity to use Laser-Lok abutments to create a biologic seal and Laser-Lok implants to establish superior osseointegration15 – a solution that offers the best of both worlds. Alternatively, Laser-Lok abutments can support...

Immediate occlusal loading of tapered internal Laser-Lok implants in partial arch application: A 24-months clinical and radiographic study. M Grande, A Ceccherini, M Serra, L Bava, D Farronato, V lorio Siciliano, R Guarnieri. J Osseointegr 2013;5(2):53-60. BACKGROUND Recently, new implant surfaces have been proposed in an effort to improve hard and soft tissue integration, which may be beneficial in immediate loading situations. AIM The purpose of the present prospective clinical study was to, during 2 years, clinically and radiographically evaluate an implant with laser microtextured...
