Genesis, The Biomimetic Implant System, Receives Regulatory Clearance
(Nanowerk News) Keystone Dental, Inc. today announced U.S. regulatory clearance of Genesis, The Biomimetic Implant System. The Genesis System represents a major advance in implant dentistry through its biomimetic design – a design inspired by nature. The unique benefits of the Genesis System include the potential to achieve immediate function with a natural looking smile, allowing the patient to leave the dentist's office with a replacement tooth on the day of surgery.
First used over 30 years ago, dental implants have primarily focused on restoring the function of natural teeth. Today, the Genesis System goes beyond simply restoring function. Through its patented BioSpark™ surface, a nano-surface that mimics the structure of bone, the Genesis System creates a healing environment to optimize bone integration. In addition, the unique AnaTite™ process results in the first-ever marketed pink implant collar and a complete line of pink prosthetics. The aesthetic breakthrough of the AnaTite process allows the Genesis System to project a more natural hue through the patient's gum tissue for a more natural looking smile.
"We are very excited about the many patient advantages the Genesis Implant System offers; it is designed to harmonize immediate function with optimal aesthetics," said Daniel Levangie, President and CEO of Keystone Dental. "The Genesis System combines a patented BioSpark nano-surface design, which is supported by over 10 years of research, with the breakthrough AnaTite aesthetic treatment process. These significant technology advancements are combined with a unique, patented, aesthetic connection that has been in use clinically for more than five years. The Genesis System continues Keystone Dental's commitment to deliver truly innovative solutions to dental professionals and their patients."
