Zimmer Sinus Lift Balloon joins regenerative family

Sept. 8, 2009
Created to simplify the sinus lift procedure, the balloon offers an option for clinicians and aids in creating a more positive patient experience.

Zimmer Dental, a provider of dental oral rehabilitation products and a subsidiary of Zimmer Holdings, has announced the availability of the Zimmer Sinus Lift Balloon.

The product is the first in a series of "sinus lift solution" products stemming from an exclusive distribution agreement with Osseous Technologies of America. Created to simplify the delicate sinus lift procedure, the balloon offers a convenient option for clinicians and aids in creating a more positive patient experience.

The minimally invasive Zimmer Sinus Lift Balloon allows for improved vertical sinus elevation results and gives clinicians added security when performing a traditional sinus lift procedure by protecting the Schneiderian membrane from tearing. This tearing can disrupt an implant case.

The balloon instrument is suited for effectively measuring the required bone grafting material. For example, 1 cc of saline, which is used to inflate the balloon, is equal to 1 cc of grafting material.

The Zimmer Sinus Lift Balloon is available in three single-use configurations for efficiency and ease-of-use. The angled design works for lateral window procedures, the straight model is suited for a crestal approach, and the micro-mini design can be used for either of these indications.
