Zimmer Dental Launches 3.7mmD Trabecular Metal Dental Implant
Posted on January 7, 2014
Zimmer Dental Inc., a leading provider of dental oral rehabilitation products and a subsidiary of Zimmer Holdings, Inc., is pleased to announce the availability of the 3.7mmD Zimmer® Trabecular Metal™ Dental Implant in select global markets. Combining the popular features of the Tapered Screw-Vent® Implant with the unique properties of Trabecular Metal Material (now with more than three years of clinical research in dental indications) the newest member of the Trabecular Metal Dental Implant family is The Best Thing Next To Bone™ for the esthetic zone.
The 3.7mmD Trabecular Metal Dental Implant is the first anterior dental implant to offer a Trabecular Metal Material mid-section, with up to 80 percent porosity, intended to enable Osseoincorporation through bone ongrowth AND bone ingrowth in a process new to implant dentistry.
This smaller diameter offering rounds out the Trabecular Metal Dental Implant portfolio, allowing clinicians the flexibility to experience the benefits of Trabecular Metal Technology in all areas of the mouth. With the 3.7mmD version, clinicians can take advantage of the implant geometry for high primary stability, critical for the immediacy protocols in the esthetic zone. The Trabecular Metal Material is designed for enhanced stability due to interconnected porosity and has demonstrated human bone ingrowth to a depth of 0.5 - 1.0mm as early as three weeks after placement in healthy patients.
Manufactured at Zimmer’s TMT facility in Parsippany, NJ (USA), and used in Zimmer’s cutting-edge orthopaedic devices for more than 15 years, Trabecular Metal Material is a three-dimensional, highly biocompatible material—not an implant surface or coating—with up to 80 percent porosity for bone ingrowth and a structure comparable to cancellous bone.
For decades, Zimmer Dental has gained the trust of thousands of clinicians worldwide who count on its comprehensive line of products to deliver successful patient outcomes. By looking to new and innovative technologies and leveraging its relationship with its parent company, Zimmer Holdings, Zimmer Dental continues to reinforce its commitment to offering state-of-the-art dental solutions.
