Genesis implant system set for U.S. market

The Genesis biomimetic implant system from Keystone Dental has received U.S. regulatory clearance, the company announced.

The benefits of the Genesis system include the potential to achieve immediate function with a natural-looking smile, allowing the patient to leave the dentist's office with a replacement tooth on the day of surgery, according to the company.

Through its patented BioSpark surface, a nanosurface that mimics the structure of bone, the Genesis system creates a healing environment to optimize bone integration, the company said. In addition, the AnaTite process results in a pink implant collar and a complete line of pink prosthetics, allowing the Genesis system to project a more natural hue through the patient's gum tissue for a more natural-looking smile.

"It is designed to harmonize immediate function with optimal aesthetics," said Daniel Levangie, president and CEO of Keystone Dental, in a press release.
