When placing the implant with the TiUltra surface do you also try to not contaminate it but not using irrigation?

I think it is interesting that we are retrofitting bone level implants...

and we are doing this with more components. There are implant brands with different transmucosal machined distances. This is only a way to retrofit an Active implant to get better bone rather than reworking the implant.  If you place a transmucosal implant where you want it and place a screw retained fully contoured restoration, you have achieved the same thing without further possible expense, complexity and components to deal with.  This is a solution to a problem created by the marketplace. Bone level implants are not ideal in all locations but they are heavily promoted. Basically we are going back in time with more complexity and I don't think this is the best for patients in the long run.
