MURRIETA, CA, April 5, 2010 – Dr. Long N. Phan, a long-time dental practitioner in Murrieta and Temecula Valley, has decided to use the Astra Tech Implant System to serve the dental implant needs of his patients.

The key to the success of an implant lies in predictability: its ability to heal into the bone and establish a secure foundation for the right restoration,” said Dr. Phan. “I wanted to give my patients the best possible implant durability and performance. Based on my research and testing, that solution is the Astra Tech Implant System.”

The unique dental implant system was devised by Astra Tech, one of the companies under the umbrella of the AstraZeneca Group, one of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies.

Astra Tech maintains an exclusive dedication to only a handful of highly specialized products. “We are committed to remaining at the forefront when it comes to advanced research and development in the field of implant dentistry,” explained a company spokesperson.

The Astra Tech Implant System was created from a biological and biomechanical approach. The concept for the system is based on the objective of augmenting the body’s capacity to regenerate bone mass in as great a speed and quantity as possible. To that end, Astra Tech dental implants also contain properties that stimulate the bone and gum growth.

Dr. Phan places Astra implants because the research indicates they are one of the best implant brands available. Several unique aspects in the design of these implants provide you the best long-term outcome with regard to bone and gum stability around these fixtures:

  • OsseoSpeed implant surface coated with Fluoride to promote bone healing around the implant.
  •  MicroThreads to distribute chewing forces.
  • Conical Seal Design to maintain bone around the implant.
  • Connective Contour to maintain gum stability around the implant.

All of these characteristics contribute to their superior performance.

From fixture to abutment to final restoration, each integrated element of the system supports and optimizes the others. The surface of the implant is specially treated to accelerate the natural healing ability of the human mouth. This mutual support results in a strong, tight connection between bone and implant, enabling simple procedures, rapid recovery at the implant site and trustworthy long-term predictability.

The Astra Tech Implant System is exceptionally well-documented as one of the fastest growing dental implant systems. Years of intensive R&D and extensive scientific documentation in both pre-clinical and clinical studies confirm that the system provides exceptional short-term and long-term aesthetic and functional results.
