FDA OKs Zimmer's implant description 'osseoincorporation'

Zimmer Dental has received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to use the term "osseoincorporation" in describing the bone-healing process made possible with its Zimmer Trabecular Metal dental implant.

Osseoincorporation refers to the healing potential of bone onto an implant surface and into an implant structure, the company noted. The Trabecular Metal dental implant has an osteoconductive midsection that is designed for ingrowth as well as ongrowth in a process new to implant dentistry; this is what the company describes as osseoincorporation.
