TRATE AG is a Swiss-based company, manufacturing medical devices since 2011. TRATE AG owning a production site and sales offices within the borders of the European Union. TRATE focuses on the design, development, manufacturing, marketing and distribution of dental and maxillofacial products, such as the dental implant system ROOTT, as well as relevant dental superstructures and surgical instruments. At the core of the enterprise is the practical experience of dentists, deep production knowledge and understanding of what is necessary for the successful functioning of dental clinics worldwide. We aim to maximize efficiency in the production and distribution of our products while maintaining high quality and safety standards. We have our own global distribution network, which allows us to guarantee high-class service.

Created for dentists by dentists

The ROOTT Implant System is developed and constantly upgrading by TRATE AG in close cooperation with members of Open Dental Community. The ROOTTCONCEPT has dispensed with the overcomplicated treatment procedures recommended by implantmanufacturers who are limited by their products on the market. The ROOTT philosophy is to create the ideal artificial tooth which organically integrates with existing biological structures in the simplest way. Class leading surface purity (ZWP 3/2016, p. 12-18).
 
Innovations and development The system development aims to reflect the collective view of independent dental practitioners throughout the world thus TRATE AG closely cooperate with the Open Dental Community NPO (Luxembourg). This approach avoids reliance on individual opinions and makes dentists free to select the method most suited to the patient.

High quality and safety standards We operate a quality management system based on EN ISO 13485:2016. The company's products are certified in compliance with the provisions European Directive 93/42/EEC.

TRATE HIGH QUALITY

Our Implants have an SLA surface. They are not sandblasted with Aluminium oxide (it could be toxic and it is not resorbable) but by using resorbable blasting materials like Hydroxyapatite.

Surface Implant Treatment

The implant surface can be sand blasted by using Aluminium oxide or by using resorbable blasting materials (RBM) like Hydroxyapatite or Beta TCP.

This RBM seems to be interesting. There was no significant difference roughness obtained between the Sandblast acid etched (SBAE) and the RBM. The resistance to the corrosion is almost the same.

But Protein synthesis by the osteoblasts seems to be influenced by the surface treatment. Indeed, the cellular activity s significantly higher on porous Ti and RBM surfaces than on TPS, HA, and SBAE surfaces.

Indeed, HA, SBAE, and RBM surfaces have a similar roughness, but a significantly different cellular activity.

This helps the dentist to choose an implant. It is preferable that the implant surface is sand blasted by Hydorxyapatite or Beta TCP more than those by Aluminium Oxyde.

Titanium Grade 23

The titanium can be divided in several grades. the most common used in dental implant are 2, 4 and 5. The Grade 5 is the used by the major implant industry. It is because of its hardness. There are implants made of Titanium Grade 23. This Grade 23 is basically a Grade 5 with the reduction of oxygen (0.2% for grade 5 and 0.13% for grade 23), iron (0.40 for grade 5 and 0.25% for grade 23) and nitrogen (0.05 for grade 5 and 0.03 for grade 23) content. This reduction of these ions allows the titanium grade 23 to become an Extra Low Interstitial Alloy. This confers improved ductility and fracture toughness. ELI has been widely used in fracture critical airframe structures and for offshore tubulars. The Ti ELI or grade 23 is a version of Titanium Grade 5 but it is purer. So, it is the purity version of Titanium 5 because of the reduction of ions. It is the golden choice where there is a need of combinations of high and strength, good corrosion resistance light weight and high toughness. It is damage tolerance is superior to other alloys.

These characteristics of the Titanium Grade 23 make it also the golden choice in Dental implants, biomedical applications such as implantable devices due to its biocompatibility, and good fatigue resistance. It also can be used:

Orthopedic cables

Ligature clips
Surgical staples
Springs
Orthodontic appliances

In joint replacements
Cryogenic vessels
Bone fixation devices
