The new generation Basal implants
The new-generation basal implant KOS-BCS also called “cortical” has won the war of efficiency in all the studies that have appeared during the 15 years since its creation by Professor Ihde in Switzerland. However, given the time required for training and the means to implement it (clinic of at least 9 people including a laboratory), very few dental surgeons are certified by the Dental Implant Foundation. This is a save technique. The latest comparative studies demonstrate a better success rate than the traditional implant. Furthermore, it avoids bone grafting and sinus lift. Only fifty dental surgeons in Europe are qualified.
The KOS or BCS implant of Biomed / Ihde Dental (Switzerland) thanks to its various shapes adapts to all heights, volumes and bone qualities. It allows to treat a large number of cases, even the most complex one without the need of a bone graft or sinus lift.
Its smooth, one-piece surface reduces the threat of peri-implantitis and implant loss by 98%. These risks occur with traditional dental implant mainly because of its rough surface and the interfaces of the different parts of the implant (Pillar / Implant). Peri-implantitis is the most common reason for loss of implants. Still too little used by surgeons in Europe, basal implantology reduces the treatment time and the number of visits to the dentist. Its use has been validated by the very strict American health control agency (FDA).
Advantages of basal BCS-Mu Biomed implant – Ihde Dental
Biomed’s BCS and KOS implant is designed for immediate loading. The protocol requires loading of the implants 48 to 72 hours after insertion. Indeed, the cortex does not osteo-integrate. The implant is mechanically retained. It is therefore not necessary to wait for 3 to 6 months as is the case for the crestal implants. However, the prosthetic must be laid so that the placed implants are joined to each other. Basal implantology has been used in dentistry for nearly 25 years, and patients are more likely to accept this type of implantology that is less invasive, less painful, faster and safer.
When dental extractions are required, the patient will benefit from a gingival plastic. This procedure consists of surgically and thoroughly re-sealing the injured parts of the gum and of treating the bone tissue. In this way, after only 48 hours, the gingiva is completely healed and the bridge will come to rest on the gum which will take the form of the latter.
The implants are placed without opening the gum. A micro perforation is realized and the implant whose shape resembles a screw will fill this gap. Thus, no wound is left.
Avoid bone grafting :
The indisputable advantage of the new generation BCS basal (cortical) implant is the fact that it avoids a painful procedure such as implant discs in basal implantology. Cortical basal implants avoid bone grafting, sinus lift or Bone augmentation that are required in classical implantology for complex cases.
The cortical basal implant is anchored in the cortical part of the bone, which is found mainly in the back of the jaw (at the level of the wisdom teeth) and in the incisivocanin zone. This part of the bone is not accessible to so-called “classic” implants. Therefore, it is possible to directly treat patients for whom traditional implant placement requires a prior bone augmentation.
Furthermore, it is valid for all patients,it is possible to implant almost 95% of the patients.

The jaw bone and its bone tissue is composed of several parts. The spongy part, the cortical part (where the main nerve of the jaw passes), the blood vessels and of course teeth. A common fear in our patients is that the facial nerve is affected during the procedure. For this reason, in this article you will find that this nerve is placed on the outer part of the cortex while the implants are placed on the inner part. It passes as far as possible from the nerves canal.

Smoking patient :
Smoking is a negative factor for placing dental implants. By reducing blood flow to oral tissues, the process of healing and osseointegration is compromised, leading patients to peri-implantitis and thus to the loss of traditional implants.
In the case of a BCS / KOS / BOI basal implantology, even though smoking is a deleterious factor for the patient and overall health, the risk to dental implants is reduced. Thanks to immediate loading of the crowns, the load-bearing areas are far from the areas affected by smoking.
However, the patient will be asked to avoid smoking the first 10 days in order to avoid resorption of the gum (there’s no risk to the implants but it causes discomfort and it fails desired aesthetics).
Patients suffering from gum disease : (periodontitis)
In case of patients with gum disease (periodontitis, gingivitis) bare teeth or bleeding gums, conventional implants are contraindicated. This is due to the high risk of gingival infection. It has to be a period between extraction and placement of implant.
On the other hand, the smooth surface of the KOS and BCS implants guarantees a success rate close to 100% in these cases. Periodontitis actually is an infection that affects the tooth. When the tooth is extracted, the surgical procedure set up by Anveli provides a gingival plastic surgery which includes gingival cleansing with curettage of the area of extraction and sutures for the first 48 hours.
