Zimmer Dental Inc., a provider of dental oral rehabilitation products and a subsidiary of Zimmer Holdings, Inc., has announced an extension of its regenerative product line with the introduction of the Zimmer Socket Repair Membrane.
The new Zimmer Socket Repair Membrane is designed to assist wound healing in alveolar facial plate repair and residual ridge preservation following atraumatic, flapless single-root tooth extractions.
The membrane provides a time-saving product and a simple, proven technique, delivering confidence into the hands of clinicians. It is initially launching only in the United States, but will be made available in Canada shortly and in Europe later in the year.
Well-suited for the general practitioner and specialist alike, the Zimmer Socket Repair Membrane is made of Type I Collagen, which is among the most important stress-carrying protein structures in the body. The pre-cut shape of the membrane fits the majority of single root sockets without the need for trimming, thereby saving the clinician time and limiting waste.
The procedure for the Zimmer Socket Repair Membrane utilizes a flapless, 6-step technique, leaving the soft tissue intact and preserving its natural architecture and vascularity. These are qualities important for esthetics and healing and help to maximize patient comfort after tooth extraction.
The Zimmer Socket Repair Membrane and technique guide provide a time-saving solution to assist wound healing in alveolar facial plate repair following tooth extractions and offer a simple alternative to a common clinical need.
