Our Story

  • 2001

    Pressfit implants have enriched the expanding market of technically demanding implants since the foundation of the company. Our fundamental principle from the beginning has been the revolutionary cone angle of 1.5 degrees, an innovation from mechanical engineering that is equivalent to cold welding. The secret lies in the particularly long and uniform cone, which ensures not only a perfect fit but also a force fit. The convincing result is bacteria-tight, free of micro-movement, and resistant to titanium abrasion due to the press fit, which fundamentally requires no screwing. In addition, the implant-abutment force distribution is like that of a one-piece implant. This philosophy has been our foundation to this day. A special feature at that time was that Pressfit implants were only tapped, not screwed. This applied to both the insertion into the cavity and the abutment-implant connection.

    The Compress implants, as the first consistent further development of our system, replaced tapping with screwing. The insertion becomes gentler and more pleasant for the patient by screwing. Above all, however, Compress was a relief for prosthetists, as the structure is now screwed for easier handling via the internal connection and an external hexagon allows for indexing. The already proven 1.5-degree cone connection was retained because it ensures that no load lies on the connection screw due to cold welding.

    The Konus Plus+ implant system was developed to elegantly replace missing teeth without a central screw. The system allowed for an easy transition to implantation or switching to this system for the following reasons: The Konus Plus+ implant system required no change and no additional effort in the treatment process. It made dental implantology a simple, predictable, and above all, familiar treatment with its two components. The absence of central screws meant that the crown structures corresponded to a core structure and could therefore be easily supplied with normal impression techniques and crowns (without additional expensive components). The casting technique was also standard for crown care, as was cementing. It took less chair time to provide for Konus Plus+ structures than for natural teeth.

    K3Pro® implant with compression thread design. The implant drill determines the direction of the implant. The parallel thread and the slightly conical implant body offer an increased surface area compared to conventional implants. Sure implants are suitable for all indications and offer ideal primary stability in all bone densities from D1 to D4. The tapering shoulder and the subcrestal placement allow for a tight bone closure and a low exit profile from the sulcus, ensuring long-term bone and papilla preservation.

    Although less publicly known than organ transplants, treatments with human donor tissue help more than 1 million people per year in Europe. Doctors use donated tissue from the human musculoskeletal system to replace bones, tendons, and ligaments that have been damaged by tumors, accidents, joint diseases, or other reasons. To make these transplants accessible to users in the oral, maxillofacial, and facial areas in Germany, based on legal and ethical foundations and in compliance with the strictest quality and safety requirements, Argon cooperates with the non-profit German Institute for Cell and Tissue Replacement (DIZG) in Berlin, a foundation created by doctors and scientists from the Universities of Berlin and Erlangen.

    K3Pro® implants feature a self-tapping thread design and a conical implant body. The implant can be directionally adjusted after drilling. The cutting thread and cutting groove allow for controlled placement of the implant. Rapid implants are suitable for all indications and offer ideal primary stability, particularly in the upper jaw. The implant is ideally suited for use with RapidFix, where the implants must be directionally controlled. The sloping shoulder and the subcrestal placement allow for a tight bone seal and minimal emergence profile from the sulcus. Thus, the long-term preservation of bone and papilla is ensured.

    The same applies to the new Short Implants available in lengths of 5.5 and 6.5 mm (with diameters starting from 4 mm), which can be used as blocked or as individual tooth replacements. Thanks to the newly arising compressive and tensile stresses, they effectively support the reconstruction and long-term preservation of the bone. K3Pro® offers a complete range of solutions not just for standard cases, but also for the most unusual indications in demanding implantology.

    Argon now offers dental surgeons a fully template-guided drilling system for implantology, designed for implants with diameters ranging from 3.0–6.0 mm. With this drilling system, the future placement of implants can be executed with absolute precision and minimal risk in terms of location, depth, and angle. The system is based on a Dental Volume Tomography (DVT) X-ray taken of the patient's jaw beforehand. The resulting DICOM dataset is processed using manufacturer-specific software in conjunction with K3Pro® datasets to create an exact drilling template for implant placement. The accompanying protocol comes equipped with technical data, application notes, and implant type designations—essentially providing a precise blueprint for the treating physician and user. This combination of digitized DVT data, processing through manufacturer-specific software, and compatible datasets from K3Pro® makes the placement of K3Pro® implants a predictable and highly precise procedure, allowing for immediate load-bearing of the implants and direct provisioning of previously manufactured structures and prostheses.

    In our DVT center, we offer a highly modern, three-dimensional X-ray procedure—Digital Volume Tomography (DVT). This method allows for a three-dimensional view of facial structures. Consequently, it enables precise planning for the subsequent prosthetic treatment. For example, the DVT scan is needed for computer-aided insertion of dental implants. The procedure ensures a gentler, safer, and more precise surgical intervention and results in significant time savings. The representation of teeth as well as jaw and sinus cavities is achievable in a previously unknown resolution, extending diagnostic capabilities.

    The Osteograph is a precision pantograph for the fabrication of three-dimensional grafts. With the Osteograph, it is possible to eliminate time-consuming adjustments and modeling of allogeneic grafts ("self-milling"). At the same time, the risk of inaccurate fitting is minimized. In this minimally invasive procedure, the block is first manufactured, and only then is the patient operated on.

    My Ti-Base solves daily problems right where other abutments reach their limits. The "trick" here is a highly aesthetic variable angulation of the hybrid abutment from the deepest point of the gingiva. Additionally, My Ti-Base offers adhesive bases with wide angles for all common implant systems, from a new perspective—both aesthetically and mechanically. My Ti-Base is a system family with highly innovative members for a variety of abutment solutions.

    To ensure medical training and education for doctors and surgeons from around the world, a dedicated training center was opened in Bingen in 2015. These state-of-the-art and technically sophisticated facilities can accommodate groups of up to 30 participants. The training programs rely on close collaboration with leading universities. Through existing partnerships with the University of Frankfurt, University of Witten, University of Bonn, and the University of Cologne, renowned professors serve as instructors at the training center. These academic instructors meet the high standards required for medical education. The training offerings include both materials and expertise training as well as advanced surgical training with live operations. These live operations, conducted in parallel with the training, take place in adjacent rooms to the training area. Surgical procedures on patients are transmitted via video to the training room and are professionally supervised and explained by the instructors.

    In 2015, the company Implant Solutions GmbH & Co. KG was founded. With this service offering, the missing piece was added to be able to offer a complete range of digital workflow services at a single location. Implant Solutions serves as a collaboration partner for dental laboratories, dentists, orthodontists, and maxillofacial surgeons who wish to utilize implant planning, 3D printing, and milling services with the quality assurance of "Made in Germany."

    The X-ray products of the subsidiary Ray were successfully introduced in German-speaking countries in 2014. Now follows the new DVT-OPG combo device, Alpha Plus. While RAYSCAN Alpha impresses specialized implantology practices with its brilliant DVT images in medium to large volume areas, Alpha Plus goes further: Starting from a maximum volume of 12 x 10 cm, freely scalable, smaller FOVs down to 3 x 4 cm are possible. All of this with optimized positioning thanks to "Guiding Light" and resolutions up to 70 µm. These are the best possible prerequisites, not only for implantological diagnostics but also for periodontics and endodontics. For orthodontics, the optional FRS equipment with One-Shot or CdTe technology is a significant component. As the manufacturer of the K3Pro® implant system, Argon places great value on data compatibility for the digital workflow in navigated implantology. Samsung RAYSCAN delivers this in optimal quality.
