April 20, 2010
Zimmer Dental is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its Tapered Screw-Vent Implant.
Zimmer Dental, a provider of dental oral rehabilitation products and a subsidiary of Zimmer Holdings, is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its Tapered Screw-Vent Implant. The product has sold more than two million units worldwide. Seven prospective studies on Tapered Screw-Vent Implants have reported cumulative success rates of more than 99%.Available in 3.7 mm, 4.1 mm, 4.7 mm, and 6.0 mm sizes, the Tapered Screw-Vent Implant’s proprietary, friction-fit, internal hex platform reduces stress on crestal bone and resists abutment screw loosening. With triple-lead threads, MTX and MP-1 HA surfaces, and a tapered implant body, the versatile Tapered Screw-Vent Implant is a choice for clinicians. With its initial implant stability, the implant also enables immediate restorations and loading where clinically appropriate.A variety of prosthetic options are designed for the Tapered Screw-Vent Implant to meet the restorative needs of today’s clinicians. They include the titanium Hex-Lock Contour Abutment and the Zimmer®Contour Zirconia Abutment (in straight and angled designs), and the recently launched Hex-Lock Short Abutment. Surgical and drill stop kits, drills, motors, restorative tools, and regenerative offerings, as well as education through the Zimmer Institute, are also available to provide a multifaceted oral rehabilitation solution.Contact a Zimmer dental sales consultant or customer service at (800) 854-7019, (760) 929-4300 (outside the U.S.), or visit for more information.To read more about Zimmer Dental, go to comment on this product, go to available from company upon request.
