Zimmer launches trabecular metal implant

Zimmer Dental is now offering the Trabecular Metal dental implant in the U.S. and select global markets.

The Trabecular Metal dental implant features an osteoconductive midsection that is structurally and biomechanically similar to cancellous bone, according to the company. Portions of the implant also utilize Zimmer Dental's MTX microtextured surface, which has been documented to achieve high levels of bone-to-implant contact, Zimmer said.

Human studies of the Trabecular Metal dental implant started in 2010. In a study of the implants in canine mandibular models, evidence of ingrowth by maturing bone was documented as early as two weeks after implantation. Further data are being collected to document clinical results in human dental applications, the company noted.

The Trabecular Metal dental implant is compatible with Zimmer's Tapered Screw-Vent surgical kit and prosthetics.
