System enables immediate restorations and immediate loading where clinically appropriate.

Zimmer Dental Inc., a leading provider of dental oral rehabilitation products and a subsidiary of Zimmer Holdings, Inc., has offered its renowned Tapered Screw-Vent Implant System as a means of comprehensively satisfying a myriad of clinical needs.

With its one-piece and two-piece implants, the Tapered Screw-Vent Implant System provides versatility and delivers performance thousands count on, case after case.

Recently featured at the AO Annual Meeting in Boston, Mass., the Zimmer One-Piece is a member of the Tapered Screw-Vent family, providing 3.0-mm, 3.7-mm, and 4.7-mm diameter solutions.

The 3.0-mm Zimmer One-Piece Implant, available in straight and angled designs, is a solution for implant placement in tight spaces. Its precontoured margins require minimal or no intraoral preparation. A selection of corresponding caps and copings simplify the restoration process and add to the system's flexibility and convenience.

For clinicians in need of a two-piece solution, the Tapered Screw-Vent Implant incorporates the features and benefits of Zimmer Dental's Tapered Screw-Vent Implant System: friction-fit internal hex connection, triple-lead threads, MTX micro-textured and MP-1 HA surfaces, and a tapered implant body. The versatile Tapered Screw-Vent Implant is available in 3.7 mm, 4.1 mm, 4.7 mm, and 6.0 mm sizes.

The Tapered Screw-Vent Implant System has distinguished itself. The proprietary friction-fit internal hex platform and lead-in bevel reduce stress on crestal bone and resist abutment screw loosening. Designed for initial implant stability, the system also enables immediate restorations and immediate loading where clinically appropriate.
