Dental products manufacturer ZimVie, formerly Zimmer Biomet, has launched the TSX dental implant in the U.S.
The implant uses a hybrid of ZimVie's proprietary dual acid-etched (DAE) and multiaxial surface technologies to balance a patient's peri-implant health needs in the coronal and subcoronal regions. Minimally rough coronal surfaces like DAE may lower the risk of biofilm formation and peri-implantitis while offering osseointegration potential to maintain crestal bone, according to ZimVie.
The implant's threads and taper are designed to follow a patient's prepared osteotomy and provide a precisely positioned, aesthetically restored stable implant. The TSX implant is compatible with the Encode Emergence 3-in-1 healing abutment, impression coping, and scanbody system.
