VRImplants Ltd.

Abstract

There is a main need to improve the actual dental implants due to increase bone reduction of the jaw .

30% of edentulous patients cannot implant because of this situation, more and more patients need bone augmentation.

The actual implants are screw like with minimum length of 8 mm and cannot provide a secure immediate implantation and loading, they can not be implanted in bone loss areas without additional bone implantation.

Our idea: developing a new line of dental implants for boneless regions which are also used for immediate implantation, immediate loading after insertion, capable to reduce the healing period, to reduce procedures and costs, to provide patients with oral comfort in a minimum period of time
