The inner geometry of the implant is designed as a precision inner hex for fitting the abutment components and other system components. The hex features long guide surfaces and the ultimate in manufacturing precision.
Another feature is the comparatively long retention screw with a diameter of 1.6 mm. The high, flexible initial tension of the screw reliably prevents it loosening and, combined with the quality characteristics of the hex, ensures reliable retention of the abutment components with outstanding long-term stability. The uniform tightening torque for all retention screws is 20 Ncm.
2-part SIC implants have platform switching in the form of a 45° angled, conical implant shoulder. The abutment components are fitted in the prosthetic implant connection diameter.
The correlation between implant and prosthetic diameter is illustrated in the overview on the right.
Development of the SICvantage® max implant system had three priorities: maximum mechanical stability, ideal handling and a full indication range.
Motivated by the conviction to offer one of the most sophisticated parallel-walled (HEX) internal connections on the market, it was clear to SIC invent that the new conical “SICvantage® max“ internal connection in turn also must be one of the best and provide innovative prosthetic restoration options.
SICvantage® max will impress more than just real taper fans. The concept is distinguished by a high level of user and product safety even with reduced implant diameters.
Indexing is performed by 4 cross-type, pallel-walled grooves (“Swiss Cross”).The conical section is tightened for the long-term by tapping gently or with the fixation screw at a torque of 20 Ncm.
After removal of the fixation screw, the (Morse taper) conical connection can only be removed with a special instrument - the extractor.
