Zimmer Dental Inc., announced the availability of the revolutionary Zimmer® Trabecular Metal Dental Implant in the U.S. and select global markets.
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.
Human studies of the Trabecular Metal Dental Implant started in 2010. In a study of Trabecular Metal Dental Implants in canine mandibular models, evidence of ingrowth by maturing bone was documented as early as two weeks after implantation. Further data is being collected to document clinical results in human dental applications.
