Zimmer Dental Inc.’s Trabecular Metal™ Dental Implant adds dimension to implant dentistry and is The Best Thing Next to Bone®. The Trabecular Metal Dental Implant features an osteoconductive mid-section that is structurally and biomechanically similar to cancellous bone. Portions of the implant also utilize Zimmer Dental’s MTX® microtextured surface, which has been documented to achieve high levels of bone-to-implant contact, or ongrowth.
Trabecular Metal Material is a three-dimensional, highly biocompatible material—not an implant surface or coating—with up to 80 percent porosity and a structure and function comparable to cancellous bone. Made from tantalum, element number 73 in the periodic table, Trabecular Metal material is fabricated utilizing a proprietary vapor deposition process.
Combining the popular features of the Tapered Screw-Vent® Implant (including Platform Plus™ Technology and crestal options) with the unique properties of Trabecular Metal Material, the Trabecular Metal Dental Implant is compatible with the Tapered Screw-Vent Surgical Kit and prosthetics for easy incorporation into treatment plans.
