A simple implant is one that has obtained a simplistic design using cutting-edge technologies and materials to cover a broad range of applications. Zuga Medical’s dental implant process is a drill-based solution that simplifies the procedure into 7 easy steps, while its training seminar provides dentists who have never placed implants before with the tools necessary to perform a simple implant surgery.  

Zuga’s tool kit features carefully designed drills with automatic stop guides that reduce over-drilling and potential complications. The bone-level implants are designed to maintain crestal bone heights and retain soft tissue for a more natural and esthetic result. A conical, low-angle taper design offers a tight and secure position of the abutment, allowing the implant to achieve higher fatigue strength while preventing leakage.

The Zuga tapered cylinder-shaped implant body with half-circle threads allows for self-tapping insertion, which produces increased initial stability, due to expansion of the approximating bone as well as the gradual condensing of the surrounding bone. Zuga’s patent-pending margin ring reduces the number of restorative steps while improving the aesthetics at the margin. 

With appropriate training, any dentist can place simple implants and add a lifelong skill to their practice. Learn more about Zuga Medical’s simple dental implant solutions at or call (216) 292-5910.
