unicCa SURFACE What is unicCa®? UnicCa® is a new surface treatment for BTI implants that consists of the chemical modification of the optima® surface with calcium ions. REMEMBER THAT... The optima® surface of BTI implants consists of a triple roughness depending on the area of the implant: neck, crests or roots, thus adapting to the different tissues and the biomechanical needs to achieve better osseointegration and to minimise the risks of peri-implantiti

What are the results of the unicCa surface? unicCa® = optima® + Ca In addition to the excellent results of the optima® surface, the modification with calcium ions provides: 1. An electropositive, clean and active surface in a new container that maintains its superhydrophilic properties -> consequence: The surface immediately interacts with the growth factors [5,13,14]. 2. PROCOAGULANT Surface -> consequence: Fills the surface-implant gap. Instant stability [5–7]. 3. Adhesive and platelet-activating surface -> consequence: The surface becomes a growth factor emitter which reduces the...

4. ANTIBACTERIAL STATIC surface: reduces the formation of microbial biofilms -> consequence: significant reduction of the risk of peri-implantitis. The additional use of Endoret® (PRGF®) increases and extends this effect.

unicCa SURFACE Why calcium? Calcium is a bioinorganic ion with decisive functions during all bone regeneration processes. [1–3]. How does the unicCa surface act? The calcium ions are released in two phases. The first phase takes place at the moment of implantation and lasts for a few minutes: coagulation on the implant surface, platelet adhesion, activation and release of growth factors [4–6]. The formation of the matrix in the implant-bone gap achieves instant stability of the implant [7–10]. In the second phase, the release lasts for several months and maintains a concentration of calcium...
