German Implant Ankylos
The Ankylos implant system was designed in 1985, on the premise that an implant could act prosthetically like a stable natural tooth. In more than 25 years of clinical use, the Ankylos system has been recognized for hard and soft tissue maintenance and high-quality, long-term esthetics.
The Ankylos implant system has several key features, including the friction-locked conical implant-abutment connection, the system-immanent horizontal offset, and the microstructured surface on the implant shoulder. The system has been used in various clinical indications for over 25 years.
Clinical studies with a follow-up between 1 and 8 years report that the Ankylos implants are safe to use rendering high implant survival rates, ranging from 94 to 100%. Support for clinical safety is further confirmed in a retrospective study including more than 12,500 Ankylos implants with up to 20 years of documented clinical follow-up.
