CLINICIAN > PRAMA, THE ONE AND ONLY INTRAMUCOSAL IMPLANT
WHY IS PRAMA THE FIRST AND ONLY INTRAMUCOSAL IMPLANT?
Because it has introduced a new language in the world of implantology: it has applied innovative biological concepts to the implant form, revolutionizing the clinician's approach to implant-prosthodontics. No other implant on the market has Prama's micromorphological and macromorphological characteristics.
WHAT DOES "INTRAMUCOSAL" MEAN?
It means that the implant neck plays a primary role in maximizing the development of the soft tissues around it, thanks to the synergy between macromorphology and micromorphology. The assessment of the thickness of the soft tissues, is no longer a limit and has the only purpose of guiding the positioning of the implant neck as a function of prosthetic closure.

WHAT ARE THE CHARACTERISTICS THAT MAKE PRAMA INTRAMUCOSAL?
First of all the presence of a neck available in three different heights (from 1.80 to 3.80 mm) characterized by a convergent geometry: regardless of the endosseous diameter of the implant, the connection diameter always reaches the same dimension. In this way, the space occupied by titanium in transgingival implants or in divergent prosthesis, is left free here for tissue regrowth. In addition, the UTM surface treatment, which characterizes this coronal portion of the implant is neither smooth nor machined, but it is a regular micro threading of the size of 60 microns, designed to be an excellent substrate for both soft and hard tissues. In this way, the positioning of the implant no longer constrains the subsequent prosthetic phase but, on the contrary, is functional to it.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF USING AN INTRAMUCOSAL IMPLANT?
First of all, benefits for the soft tissues, which with a traditional transmucosal divergent implant or with prosthetic divergent components were compressed, while now exploiting the advantage of the free space left by the convergent morphology. It increases the thickness of the mucous compartment, with greater aesthetics and stability.
Furthermore, the great versatility of this implant allows the clinician to fully exploit the anatomical (bone volumes) and biological (gingival biotypes) characteristics of each patient, maximizing their potential and planning the prosthesis with great freedom, exploiting the variety of options and possible solutions.
