Company Profile
Established by Dr. Uri Arny in 2005, ARDS deals with the development, manufacturing and marketing of innovative dental implants. Dr. Arnys guiding philosophy of Minimum Drilling Maximum Primary Stability, has inspired him to develop a unique drilling technique which keeps bone damage to the minimum while maximizing primary stability. Combined with the introduction of the revolutionary Smart implant these principles have been fulfilled. Dr. Arny Uri Chairman & Medical Manager ARDS holds a number of international patents with regards to: The Smart implant design. ARDS drilling technique a simple, bone preserving drilling technique. The 3mm Smart Implant a unique one-stage implant designed for narrow ridges and thin crests. The main advantages for ARDS drilling technique and Smart implants are: Shorter healing process Saving 40% of the bone by reducing the amount of drilled bone. Immediate implant after extraction in almost every case Significantly shortening the process of bone-implant integration due to a unique design of the implant which increases bone-implant contact in the surgery phase (in comparison with conventional implants of the same diameter). Maximum primary stability ARDS drilling technique combined with the shape of the Smart implant results in the compression of the spongiosal bone around the apical part of the implant during its insertion. Thus, load forces are equally distributed along the entire implant and not only at its upper threads, as in common implants held only at the cortical bone. Implanting in problematic areas ARDS drilling technique enables precise control over the placement and shape of the bore hole. This is attainable by the use of leading pins which direct the drill at the correct angle throughout the process and stabilize it, also in narrow ridges or extraction sites. The result is a simple, user-friendly implant process, suited for every dentist.

External Surface
Osseointegration is needed in order to create a durable stability of the implant in the bone. In order to intensify the osseointegration, the implants must go through a series of processes: The first process is blasting the implant, using adhesive particles containing Alumina, in order to create a rougher surface area. In general, cells adhere better onto rough surfaces and the deep pits created by the blasting procedure, act as retentive pockets for newly formed bone. The second process is the cleaning of the implants using a special technique to keep the Titanium in its original composition. This prevents foreign materials from being captured between the titanium surface and the bone. After the final cleaning of the Titanium, when in contact with the air, an oxidized layer of 50-2000 Ti-Oxide is being created on the implants surface. This layer is inert biologically and isolates the Titanium, defending it from further chemical reactions. Pure Titanium or alloy implants keep this layer without fraction or corrosion under physiological conditions. This thin layer will be the one that determines the implanttissue connection, and not the metal itself. This process prevents a situation where a fundamental change in the composition of material on the implants surface will change the BoneImplant connection.

Hybrid Dual Thread Screw Implant Analytical and Experimental Research


Dr. Uri Arny, Ilan Weissberg M.Sc & Oved Gihon, Mechanical engineer. Introduction
As the popularity of using implants in dental restorative procedure gains momentum, there is a need to find innovative dental implant, which can effectively transfer the loads and provide the necessary stabilization into jawbone. This paper presents the development results of a novel implant with a Hybrid Dual Thread Screw as shown in Fig. 1. This approach allows obtaining a high reinforcement of the implant in the jawbone by a reduction of the drilling bone volume along with an additional gain of primary surface contact relatively to classical implants. To prove the concept, analytical models and experiment tests were carried out during the development of an implant with Hybrid Dual Thread Screw (HDTS). The analytical calculations are based on Finite Element Model, while the experiment tests were done on an artificial bone made of Fiberglass and Structural foam, which represents the bone mechanical properties. These unique experimental tests which have been chosen, since the clinical tests evaluations on animals are not efficient. The animal has different dental jaw structure and it requires a lot of time to get the results.

Experimental Method
Force-displacement tests have been carried out on Classical Cylindrical Implant and HDTS implant both have diameter of 4.5 mm and 13 mm in length. The implants have been inserted in an artificial bone specimen shown in Fig. 2, the cross section dimensions of this specimen are of a typical mandible as is shown in Fig. 3. An axial load was applied onto the implant head until failure was reached. During the static tests the force-displacement curves were recorded and axial stiffness has been calculated.

HDTS Implant Description


The unique HDTS dental Implant, shown in Fig. 1, uses two different thread types, double thread thin grove at the implant interface area with the cortical bone and single thread thick groves at the cancellous. This unique design allows facilitating the transfer of occlusal forces to the greatest surface area of the bone-implant interface for favorable load distribution. Also it reduces the amount of bone removed by using a novel drilling procedure.

Experimental Results
The experimental tests showed that the HDTS implant could carry higher axial load compared to classical cylinder implants, as shown in figure 4. It is also shown that HDTS implant has higher stiffness then the classical cylindrical implant. The stiffness of the implants is compatible with measured axial stiffness of 180 Kg/mm published in the literature for Branemark (7 mm) in trabecular bone. These results increase the reliability of the preformed experimental tests.

The maximal shear stress level at the cortical jawbone with HDTS implant is 15% to 25% lower compared with a classical cylindrical implant, this is shown in Fig 6, which plots the max shear stress distribution in the cortical bone under an axial load of 40 Kg for the both type of implants.

Discussion & Conclusions


The experimental tests showed that HDTS implant achieved the highest vertical load capability compared with a classical cylindrical implant. The unique tests experiments method evaluates in this study provided short development time by using artificial bone specimen. These experiments were done with a background of analytical calculations. The lower shear stress values at the cortical bone evaluate for the HDTS implant compared with the classical cylindrical implants provides the advantage of the HDTS implant regarding on carrying higher loads and increasing life time of the HDTS implant. This phenomenon is mostly due to the innovative implant geometry and bone drilling method.

Analytical Method
Finite Element Model (FEM) of an implant installed in a standard jawbone cross section has been built using NASTRAN FEM software. The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of HDTS implant versus classical cylindrical implants on the stress intensity and stress distribution due to axial load. Two analytical models were built for the identical specimen types described above. The Implant stress distribution at the bone cross section was calculated. The FEM model of the dental implant bone system used 2-D Plate elements; the model is symmetrical since only axial (vertical) load had been analyzed, as is shown in Fig. 5.

Analytical Results
The analytical calculations showed that the HDTS implant have favorable stress distribution over the classical cylindrical implant.

Implants
Smart
The Smart implant is a dual thread internal hex implant, slightly tapered at its lower part with a 3.75mm universal platform. The Smarts unique dual thread design and exceptionally large surface area enables optimal grip of the implant both in the cortical and the spongiosal bone, thus creating excellent primary stability and equal distribution of forces along the implant. The Smart is self tapping and compresses the bone as each thread penetrates deeper than the one before. The Smart 3mm implant is a dual thread, external hex, one stage implant. It is used in narrow ridges or thin crests. The carrier of the 3mm implant serves a double function as the driver of the upper parts. The Smart is suitable for all bone types including especially low quality bones. 3.75mm

Smart Over Denture Components


ARDS Implants Smart over denture components (Smart OD) were developed to deal with angulated cases. Smart OD enable you to achieve ideal results anatomically, functionally and equally important - esthetically. Smart OD components are available at either 17 or 30 and at 1mm, 2mm or 3mm heights.

Working Procedure
Once the implants had been exposed, healing caps were fitted and we await the patients recovery, the 2 following working procedure are possible:

1. If you are assisted by a dental technician when taking measurements:


a. Take a regular measurement using transfers and send it to the dental technician. b. The technician casts the measurement and chooses the proper Smart OD according to the implants angulations. The technician prepares a customized tray and sends it back to you. c. Remove the healing caps and attach the Smart OD selected by the technician together with a universal cover. Make sure to lock it in place. d. Take a measurement using the customized tray in open technique using plastic sleeves and send it back to the technician. e. The technician prepares the final model using the proper analogs and finishes the case.

2. If you prefer not to be assisted with the technician in the first stages:
a. After you expose the implants and fit the healing caps, take a measurement to create a customized tray. b. Fit the proper Smart OD together with the universal cover on top of the implants using the plastic handle to guide you. c. Attach regular casting sleeves to the Smart OD. d. Take a measurement for an over denture, using the customized tray. e. Remove the plastic sleeves which are attached to the tray. You must not remove the Smart OD off the implants they must stay in the mouth. f. Send the measurement to the technician; you can finish the case according to regular procedure.
