Bone Bonding - the next level of osseointegration

With the new Ponto BHX Implant, the Ponto System offers even greater biomechanical fixation. It builds on the well-known benefits of the Wide Ponto Implant by combining the high initial stability of the proven OptiGrip™ geometry with a new laser-ablated surface for fast and strong osseointegration.

Stronger than the bone itself

The new Ponto BHX Implant uses a Biohelix™ surface modification created by an oscillating laser beam. It has been shown that this new Biohelix™ surface increases the strength of the bone-to-implant interface by more than 150%, making it stronger than the bone itself. 

Using unique laser ablation technology that locally heats and melts the titanium at the root of the thread, the surface of the implant gains a three level surface topography. The resulting macro, micro and nano structures are designed to match the topography of bone for improved bone bonding.

In addition to the new Biohelix™ surface, the Ponto BHX Implant incorporates the proven OptiGrip™ geometry. Used for four years in Wide diameter Ponto implants, this has been shown to create the highest initial stability of all bone anchored hearing implants. Furthermore, this stability is maintained over time.

A choice of implant sizes

Ponto BHX Implants come in two lengths (3 mm and 4 mm) for different bone thicknesses. The implant components are delivered for either single or two stage surgery. For single-stage surgery, the implant is delivered pre-mounted on an abutment. For two-stage surgery, the implant is delivered pre-mounted on an adapter.
