One-piece implant now available in 4.7mm diameter

May 14, 2007
Indications expanded to include all tooth locations.

Zimmer Dental Inc., a leading provider of dental oral rehabilitation products and a subsidiary of Zimmer Holdings, Inc., has announced the addition of the 4.7mm diameter Zimmer One-Piece Implant in straight and angled versions.

Also available in 3.0mm and 3.7mm diameters, the Zimmer One-Piece Implant combines the design features of the renowned Tapered Screw-Vent Implant with the prepared margins of the Hex-Lock Contour Abutment. This offers a unique one-piece solution for fast, convenient immediate restoration with minimal or no abutment preparation.

The 3.7mm and 4.7mm Zimmer One-Piece Implants now are indicated for all tooth locations, allowing for versatility to choose between a Tapered Screw-Vent Implant or Zimmer One-Piece Implant in a large variety of cases.

Because Tapered Screw-Vent and Zimmer One-Piece Implants share a common body design and similar drilling sequence, the clinician may alter his or her treatment plan between these one-piece and two-piece options at any time during planning or placement.

Zimmer One-Piece Implants are part of the Tapered Screw-Vent Implant System--an integrated family of implants, abutments and copings. The Tapered Screw-Vent Implant System includes the Zimmer One-Piece Implant, the Tapered Screw-Vent and Advent Implants, and the Hex-Lock Contour Abutment (which includes a variety of caps and copings).

The breadth of offerings in the Tapered Screw-Vent system gives the clinician the ability to choose with confidence the right products and procedure for each individual patient.
