Zimmer distributes synthetic bone-grafting line

Zimmer Dental has partnered with German regenerative medicine firm Curasan to distribute synthetic bone-grafting materials to the dental market worldwide under the IngeniOs brand.

IngeniOs HA synthetic bone particles are a 100% nonbiologic, pure-phase hydroxyapatite (HA) bone substitute for filling bone defects in a number of dental procedures, including alveolar ridge augmentation, guided tissue regeneration, extractions, and sinus lifts, according to the company.

With up to 80% porosity and minimal resorption, IngeniOs HA is designed to provide lasting support of vascularized bone formation and exhibits radiopacity for easy x-ray identification, the company said.

Clinicians interested in a 100% nonbiologic, resorbable solution may prefer IngeniOs β-TCP Bioactive synthetic bone particles. This silicated grafting formulation offers the potential for increased bioactivity and is designed to resorb in balance with replacement by naturally regenerating mineralized bone.

IngeniOs β-TCP Bioactive, also radiopaque, has up to 75% interconnected porosity to help enable ingrowth of healthy bone tissue. Like IngeniOs HA, IngeniOs β-TCP is designed for variou dental procedures, including alveolar ridge augmentations, filling periodontal defects, extractions, and sinus lifts.
