Smartness in practice

Xive implant in a jaw

Versatility and ease

From the narrowest gap to the fully atrophied edentulous jaw, in hard or soft bone, from single-stage to two-stage protocols, from subgingival to transgingival healing, from immediate to delayed loading – with Xive, you decide which treatment concept to select.

Dentsply Sirona Implants backs its implant systems with a lifetime warranty. Read our warranty terms and conditions.

System highlights

Xive is based on surgical and prosthetic site-specific requirements, according to your desired clinical approach for dental implant treatment. In support of this approach, Xive provides:

  • Excellent primary stability – atraumatic and gentle in dense bone, stable and secure in soft bone.
  • An internal hex connection interface with clear and accurate positioning of the abutment with six reversible positioning options.
  • A versatile range of implants including narrow, wide and transgingival options.
  • A sophisticated range of prosthetic treatment concepts supporting temporary, and cement-, screw- and attachment-retained restorations.

Xive is supported by more than 25 years of dental implant industry experience, including pioneering work and groundbreaking developments in the fields of immediate implant loading and implant surface design.

High primary stability in all types of bone can be achieved by the patented combination of bone-specific preparation protocol and bone-condensing thread design.

Friadent plus surface
Grit-blasted and high temperature-etched microstructure accelerates rapid bone formation on the implant surface; this results in early osseointegration and high bone-to-implant contact.

Bone care with platform-switch
Integrated platform switch option supports improved preservation of crestal bone levels with concurrent favorable soft tissue conditions.

Easy and versatile prosthetics
A range of prefabricated and patient-specific abutments provides versatility in prosthetics, both on implant and abutment level, including immediate restorations for any possible indication; internal butt-joint connection with self-guiding properties and color-coded or laser-marked components support error-free workflow.

News from Dentsply Sirona Implants

Xive — in better shape than ever

Our new curve is a straight line to better results:

  • The Xive Gingiva Former contours the soft tissue after or during the healing phase of Xive S Implants.

  • Thanks to its curved shape it both preserves and esthetically shapes the soft tissue.

  • This shape and the implant position are then transferred to the master cast, using the new transfer coping.

History of innovation


Surgical flexibility with Xive

Xive helps you achieve safe and predictable results in all your patient cases. Xive offers implant widths and lengths to match the variations in jaw anatomy. The special thread design guarantees safe and atraumatic implant placement, even in the hardest cortical bone. And the cylindrical implant body optimizes the use of available bone volume, even in anatomically complex situations, making additional grafting procedures often unnecessary. 

You can place Xive using either conventional or computer-guided treatment planning. Determining the appropriate treatment planning is based on a comprehensive consultation with your patient, to determine exactly what the patient wants and expects from the treatment, discover any possible contraindications, and to explain the treatment in detail to the patient.

Conventional treatment planning

Radiographic templates

A transparent template can be used to superimpose implant images upon radiographs to help you plan implant placement. Templates are implant-specific and provide different magnifications that correspond to the radiograph magnification.

Surgical template

A thermoformed splint with radiographic balls that can be accurately repositioned in the patient’s mouth. It can be subsequently modified to a conventionally fabricated surgical template. The pre-prosthetic planning is simplified with the Friadent Select components.

Simplant - Computer-guided treatment planning

Simplant dental planning software provides you with accurate and predictable surgery options. It will help you to assess your patients’ anatomy and its exact relationship to the proposed restoration. Treatment planning is easily communicated to your dental team, your dental laboratory, and the patient – everyone can see and understand what the treatment entails.

  • Safe three-dimensional planning in the sub-millimeter range and with reference to the desired restoration.
  • Automatic collision control, which displays too narrow clearances between implants or to the nerve.
  • Information on peri-implant bone quality for accurate conclusions on the expected primary stability.

Whether you are filling the narrowest gap or an edentulous jaw, in hard or soft bone, in a single- or two-stage protocol – immediate loading or delayed loading – you always have an appropriate solution available with Xive. 

Xive implants

The implant range of Xive includes subgingival Xive S and transgingival Xive TG, in diameters from 3.0–5.5 mm and lengths from 8–18 mm. Additionally, because the endosseous portion is identical, you use the same instruments for site preparation and can determine which implant to place during the surgical procedure.

The implant design of Xive combines a cylindrical implant body and the patented thread design – with a condensing crestal section – to ensure safe and atraumatic implant placement with optimal primary stability in all types of bone.

The unique three-section hybrid with Friadent plus surface promotes stable adhesion of bone-forming cells and induces bone formation, while the slight extension of the implant shoulder tightly seals the cervical gap between bone and implant and makes placing prosthetic components easy.

With Xive, you can easily and efficiently manage and adapt to different conditions and treatment modalities, including:

  • One- and two-stage procedures
  • Functional and non-functional immediate restoration
  • Immediate and early loading
  • Transgingival approaches with the one-piece implant type of Xive TG


Subgingival Xive S Implant

Lengths: 8–18 mm

Transgingival Xive TG Implant

Lengths: 8–15 mm

Xive features three pre-assembled modular surgical kits that can be customized with additional modules according to your clinical preferences. Clear pictograms and system-specific color-coding ensures easy user guidance during surgery. All instruments are securely fixed in silicon holders. 

Xive Surgical Kit D 3.0–5.5 mm / S + L

Supports the full implant assortment including Xive TG. Includes all instruments required for the placement of Xive Implants in diameters from 3.0–5.5 mm – lengths of instruments S (short) and L (long).

Xive Surgical Kit D 3.0–3.8 mm / S

Streamlined content for the most commonly used implants. Includes all instruments required for the placement of Xive Implants diameters from 3.0–3.8 mm – lengths of instruments S (short).

Xive Surgical Kit D 3.0 mm / S + L

Minimum content only for narrow implants. Includes all instruments required for the placement of Xive Implants diameters from 3.0 mm – lengths of instruments S (short) and L (long).

With Xive, you can modify the surgical protocol during preparation depending on the bone quality. The drilling protocol has been designed to provide you with total control when preparing osteotomies, matching your clinical treatment approach and delivering optimal primary implant stability – thanks to the combination of a bone-specific preparation protocol and condensing implant thread design. 

Convenient drilling options

Multiple-use twist drills for Xive are available in two lengths:

  • Xive twist drill S (short) for easy handling, e.g., in the posterior region.
  • Xive twist drill L (long) for the anterior region and for the maximum implant length of 18 mm.

Color-coded rings identifying the lengths of the Xive twist drills, combined groove and laser markers (zebra design) indicating the depths of preparation, make it easy to read the markers during surgery. Two-edged profile drill design provides excellent cutting properties to ensure efficient site preparation. 

How it works (see animation)

Bone-specific preparation

By varying the preparation of the crestal section of the implant site depending on the type of bone in combination with the condensing implant design, Xive achieves excellent primary stability in all types of bone – atraumatic and gentle in hard bone of density (D I), stable and secure in soft bone of density (D IV).

Once the osteotomy has the required implant diameter, the next step is usually crestal preparation of the bone to adapt it to the clinical situation.

The drilling depth of the crestal drill is varied depending on the bone density, while the osteotomy preparation ensures ideal conditions for not loading the cortical bone during placement of Xive screw implants.

Restorative freedom with Xive

Xive offers you numerous innovative prosthetic options, including pre-fabricated and patient-specific solutions both on implant and abutment level, supporting immediate restorations in most indications. The deep, internal hexagonal connection provides you with clear and accurate positioning of an abutment with six reversible positioning options. 

Treatment concepts

There are several restorative treatment modalities designed for use with the Xive implant system. These will assist you in delivering the optimal solution to your patients. You can choose from concepts like platform switching that help you sculpture soft tissues; intraoral welding for creating chairside restorations; and fast and esthetic dentures for your patients requiring full-arch restorations.


Immediate loading and temporary restoration

Xive with the TempBase concept offers the option of creating fixed, esthetically attractive temporary dentures quickly. If initial conditions allow, TempBase can be used for single-tooth restorations and even for more specific, complex restorations:

Xive implants with TempBase concept
  • Simple – The TempBase 3-in-1 concept: placement head, coping for index impression and temporary abutment for the temporary restoration – all in one.

  • Safe – The pre-mounted TempBase enables a prosthetic restoration without replacement of components (i.e., without additional risk) with immediate restoration and non-functional immediate loading.

  • Fast – The prefabricated, accurately fitted TempBase Cap can be "clipped“ to form a base for a high-quality, implant-supported, temporary denture – then a temporary crown can be fabricated chairside.

  • Economical – The multifunctional TempBase is included with Xive S – with no additional costs for a temporary abutment.

Patient-specific suprastructures on transgingival Xive implants

With an Atlantis suprastructure on Xive TG implants, it is possible to utilize all the benefits of a patient-specific restoration beyond CAD/CAM while profiting from cost-effectiveness. The transgingival implant design eliminates the need for additional abutments, and the one stage surgical procedure is time saving and comfortable for the patient.

Using the Xive TG implant, you also achieve high primary stability in all types of bone. The prosthetic restoration for Xive TG allows you to choose between an Atlantis suprastructures patient-specific implant suprastructure for a fixed or removable dental implant prosthesis.

Xive TG implants
  • One stage surgery
  • Time saving
  • Cost effective
  • Precise and passive fit


Numerous factors can affect the bone level and the health of the soft tissue surrounding a dental implant. Some factors are design-related. The use of diameter-reduced abutments, called Platform-Switch (PS), can provide the following results:

Xive implant PS
  • Gained soft tissue volume – The consequent use of PS components shifts the transition between implant and abutment towards the center and creates an improved emergence profile; platform-switch is designed to increase the soft tissue volume, contributing to long-term esthetic outcomes.

  • Improved preservation of crestal bone – The positive effects of PS have been described in numerous studies over the years and it is a commonly accepted concept. A Meta-Analysis published by M.A. Atieh et al. came to the conclusion:

    "The marginal bone loss around platform-switched implants was significantly less than around platform-matched implants." *

* Atieh MA, Ibrahim HM, Atieh AH. Platform Switching for Marginal Bone Preservation Around Dental Implants: A Systematic Review and Mata-Analysis. Journal of Periodontology 2010;81(10):1350–66. 

The Individual Esthetic concept

Individual Esthetic allows you to create highly esthetic results in just a few steps. Use the individual esthetic concept in your daily practice routine for:

  • Perfectly attuned components
  • Easier soft tissue management

Steps for an Individual Esthetic result

Step 1: Individually customizable surgical protocol – Thanks to the patented combination of the bone-specific preparation protocol and bone-condensing thread design, you can achieve outstanding primary stability, even in soft bone.

Step 2: Customized gingiva formers / provisional components – With the Friadent EsthetiCap, you easily achieve an esthetically high-quality provisional crown or bridge.

Step 3: Individual impression – Create an individual transfer post in just a few steps.
