Zimmer Biomet’s dental division unveils 3.1-mmD Eztetic dental implant
Zimmer Biomet launches 3.1-mmD Eztetic dental implant designed for narrow anterior spaces.
Zimmer Biomet’s dental division has announced the availability of its new 3.1-mmD Eztetic implant, manufactured by Zimmer Dental, and its accompanying surgical and restorative components.
The 3.1-mmD Eztetic implant is designed to offer improvements over similar commercially available implants, particularly in the areas of strength and primary stability. According to the manufacturer, the Eztetic implant achieved a 43% higher fatigue strength when compared to select competitive implants of similar diameters and performed "exceptionally well" in insertion torque and torsional yield strength testing.1
The implant-abutment connection is designed to reduce micromovement and microleakage. The connection consists of a conical interface, platform switch, and "Double Friction-Fit" technology designed to make strong narrow-diameter implants indicated for all anterior areas. The Eztetic implant-abutment connection, along with a contour abutment profile, is designed to provide space for soft tissue and esthetic emergence of the restoration.
In addition, a wide range of user-friendly restorative options are available, including abutments for cement-retained, custom, and overdenture restoration.
“Zimmer Biomet’s dental division takes pride in developing high-quality products based upon solid research and feedback from our customers," said Michael Collins, who served as the Zimmer Dental vice president of research and development during the implant’s development. "We had a vision to create a narrow, strong anterior solution with high primary stability [that] will enable clinicians to perform immediate restorations, when appropriate, in the esthetic zone. We are pleased that the 3.1-mmD Eztetic implant achieves this vision with a balance of features designed for strength and beauty in the anterior.”
