APPLICATIONS

Implant Dentistry

LaunchPad Medical’s lead application is within the field of implant dentistry. We intend to market Tetranite™ to address limitations in the multi-billion dollar dental implant market.

The Tetranite™ adhesive technology provides an accelerated approach to the stabilization of implant-supported replacement tooth. This adhesive biomaterial offers an easier and less time consuming treatment plan for patients and a cost advantage for providers. Tetranite™ delivers a shift in the treatment paradigm for the placement of implants by:

 

• Stabilizing implants to allow for immediate placement

• Reducing the number of procedural steps

• Obviating the need for graft containment membranes

• Facilitating new bone integration with implants

• Expanding the market of implant placement providers

• Accelerating the time to restore patient aesthetics and function

Fracture Fixation

The Tetranite™ adhesive technology is capable of bonding bone to bone and bone to metal which enables an array of new surgical treatment options for fixating fractured bone. Unlike other bone substitutes and fixation products, the use of Tetranite™ provides immediate load-bearing adhesion that  helps surgeons to reduce complex fractures while  augmenting the stability of metallic hardware. Tetranite is bioresorbed at a controlled rate to maintain the stability of a fracture site while bone fusion occurs. These unique product attributes will revolutionize the field of fracture repair by:

 

• Providing a more effective way to treat articular fractures

• Limiting the need for fracture site reduction aids (K-wires and clamps)

• Reducing the complexity and time for surgical interventions

• Augmenting fixation strength of existing hardware solutions

• Reducing the pain associated with post-operative recovery

• Permitting earlier rehabilitation and return to function

Spinal Fusion

The Tetranite™ adhesive technology provides a less invasive approach to stabilize vertebral bodies to facilitate spinal fusion surgeries. This innovative material diminishes technical complexities, procedural time, and the attendant risks associated with the placement of metallic fixation hardware  by:

 

• Reducing the need for fixation hardware to achieve stabilization

• Decreasing the hospital inventory of surgical tool kits

• Augmenting the stability of fixation devices to poor quality bone

• Increasing surgical options for patients with poor quality bone

• Improving the ability to radiographically assess bone fusion

• Reducing the pain associated with post-operative recovery

• Permitting an earlier return to function after surgery
