Conical Implants

Important Factors in the Design of a Conical Implant Abutment Connection

1. Retention

The closer the tolerance between the implant angle (α) to the abutment
angle (β) the greater the mechanical retention for eliminating micro movement.

2. Sealing against bacterial endotoxin leakage

The larger the angle (α), the better the seal. Group A companies: 8 ≤ α ≤ 16 -
good friction (retention) Group B companies: 16 ≤ α ≤ 30 - good sealing

3. Material specifications

Superior material mechanical properties enable engineering possibilities to
design a better seal.

4. One platform

Minimizes the number of prosthetic connections while providing a variety of
prosthetic options.

The PALTOP Advantage

Through an understanding of biology,
engineering, materials science and
practical clinical usage, the PALTOP Conical
Connection was developed.
The PALTOP implant angle (α) and the
abutment angle (β) are produced in an
accuracy of 0.5° to achieve excellent retention
and zero micro movement.

The PALTOP 22° conical angle creates an optimal
seal against bacterial endotoxin leakage, while
maintaining excellent retention.

The implant and abutment material is
Titanium Alloy Grade 5 which has superior
mechanical properties to pure titanium.
