The Hybrid mini implant offers a versatile, complex, multifunctional solution customized to your needs for cases solved by mini implant tooth augmentation with removable abutments. This is single and biphasic, that can be loaded immediately, extra thin, normal and extra shortly round-headed, locator headed, conical, multiunit headed Hybrid implants offer a wide range of applicational possibilities for, plastic, zirconium, titanium and cobalt-based teethworks.

 Geometry of the Hybrid mini implant. Double cord thread with colour indicators. "Thin design".

The geometry of the HYBRID implant:

1. It is a Brönemark type hexagonal cross section head with inner cone and screw thread. 2. Micro thread structure with a four paragraphed cortical cord thread. 3. Double paragraphed normal cord thread body part for dynamic force reduction. 4. With increased contour and increased thread depth, the cycloid thread structure with primary stability, self-cutting edge and anti-rotation groove.

The main characteristics of the BIONIKA Hybrid Implant System is that, each element of the screw thread has a radius-shaped, continuously variable cross-section according to the natural analogy. The „3” cord thread screw section is a smaller diameter with „k” than the „m” thread formation of the apical part providing the primary stability with the sharper cycloid thread.

The applicational fields of the Hybrid mini implant

There are more and more patients with a small bone supply, who naturally have the needs of regaining the 100% function of their teeth. BIONIKA has developed the Hybrid implant system, which enables us to produce teethworks for versatile usage in the case of those patients.

Hybrid round-headed implants - removable toothworks.

Removable toothworks

If the patient does not have a tooth, complete tooth replacement can be made. In this case one of the solutions is the removable denture. Usually removable toothworks are 2-4, possibly 6-8 implants are implanted into the upper jaw, considering bone quality, according to load conditions. The round-head solution is a classic solution. The most common fixing solution. Both the 1.8 mm (micro) and 2.5 mm (normal) diameter ball head implants can be found in the Hybrid mini systems. A (medium) ball head with a 2,3 mm diameter can be ordered on request.

The application of the locator torsion-shaped head single-phase or biphase mini implants are relatively new compared to this. These are also able to provide greater stability to the denture in the case of less implants. The great advantage of the HYBRID solution is the replacement possibility of worn out ball heads and locator heads.

Implanted removable dentures splinted together

Beside the implants, an individually prepared metal splint can be inserted screwed to the implants, which even provides greater support and stability for the denture. The splint is fastened to 2-5 implants. Thus, the loading of implants is better distributed, thus increasing their lifetime.

In the case of toothworks splinted together, the dentist and the dental technician may also have the possibility that the ball head or the locator head be designed and constructed not into the axis of the implant but in the optimum position.
The implant tooth fixations also provide a tremendous quality of life for the patient in the case of removable toothworks, as this will make the denture much more stable than conventional removable dentures, possibly with dentures fixed with denture adhesive. It gives a sense of perfection in chewing and talking as well.

All-on-4 the economical solution

The thin Hybrid mini implants are also suitable with the All-on-4 solution in the case of toothworks with great stability. The temporary denture can be inserted on the day of surgery. Immediate improvement in function, speech and aesthetically. Treatment times are shorter and costs can be lower than conventional implant treatment methods.

All-on-6 solution with hybrid mini multi-unit implants

All-on-6 the safe solution

The stability of the toothwork can be increased with the All-on-6 solution. It is exceptionally advantageous in the case of extra chewing ability. The usage of longer implants allows the bone and the implant to touch on a larger surface, thus making bone augmentation avoidable. Favorable bone level for tilted and axial implants. High remaining and osseintegrational chances.
