Zimmer Dental Launches Game-Changing Trabecular Metal Dental Implant

Trabecular Metal Dental Implant
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.

    My background is in orthopaedic total joints and infection is always a big concern for implants. I worked with a surgeon that specialized in infected total joints (hips and knees) and most of the time the implants that got infected were fairly loose and easy to get out. The bigger problem was the bio-films, bone quality or lack there of as a result of the infection.

    The biggest advantage I see with TM is the rapid bone ingrowth is a natural wall protecting from infection.
