Training center focuses on strengthening and enhancing the dental profession by offering scientific educational courses to dental clinicians from around the world.

 

(PARSIPPANY, NJ) February 16, 2016–Zimmer Biomet Holdings, Inc. (NYSE and SIX: ZBH), a global leader in musculoskeletal healthcare, is pleased to announce the grand re-opening of its dental division’s Zimmer Biomet Institute training center in Parsippany, New Jersey. The Zimmer Biomet Institute Parsippany training center is a part of the dental division of Zimmer Biomet.

 

The newly enhanced 20,000 square foot dental training center includes a simulation lab, a cadaver lab and lecture room. The facility dedicated to training provides scientific educational courses for dental clinicians from around the world who are interested in restorative, surgical and regenerative procedures. The courses offered at the center include cadaveric-based training, case study reviews and simulation workshops (on lifelike mannequins) in our proprietary, state-of-the-art patient training laboratory. This provides optimal hands-on experience and support to clinicians as they strive to refine their clinical skills.

 

Focusing on strengthening and enhancing the dental profession through education, the Zimmer Biomet Institutes in North America train more than 1,000 dental clinicians through 65+ courses offered annually.

 

“We are thrilled to re-open our doors as the Zimmer Biomet Institute and excited to build on the foundation of our ability to provide dynamic professional training,” said Ken Varner, the Director of Institutes for Zimmer Biomet’s dental division. “During our re-opening in Parsippany on February 10, clinicians were able to see first-hand the best in class dental training offerings available in our new facility.”

 

In order to meet the growing demand from clinicians and the expanding global business of dental implantology, additional facilities will open in China in late 2016 and Palm Beach Gardens, Florida in late 2017. The Carlsbad, California facility will be moving to an enhanced site in June 2016. Existing facilities operate in Bogota, Columbia and Winterthur, Switzerland.

A Strong, Esthetic Solution for Narrow Anterior Spaces

 

(Palm Beach Gardens, FL) – February 16, 2016–Zimmer Biomet’s dental division is pleased to announce the availability of its new 3.1 mmD Eztetic™ Implant, manufactured by Zimmer Dental, and accompanying surgical and restorative components. The 3.1mmD Eztetic Implant offers a strong, esthetic solution for narrow anterior sites. 

 

“Zimmer Biomet’s dental division takes pride in developing high-quality products based upon solid research and feedback from our customers.  We had a vision to create a narrow, strong anterior solution with high primary stability which will enable clinicians to perform immediate restorations, when appropriate, in the esthetic zone.  We are pleased that the 3.1mmD Eztetic Implant achieves this vision with a balance of features designed for strength and beauty in the anterior,” said Michael Collins, who served as the Zimmer Dental Vice President of R & D during the implant’s development. 

 

Exceptional Strength & Primary Stability

The 3.1mmD Eztetic Implant is designed to offer improvements over similar commercially available implants, particularly in the areas of strength and primary stability.  When compared to select competitive implants of similar diameters, the Eztetic Implant achieved a 43% higher fatigue strength.1  In addition, the implant performed exceptionally well in insertion torque and torsional yield strength testing.1

 

Three Principles Combined to Create One State-of-the-Art Connection

For the first time, three concepts have been combined to create a precise implant-abutment connection designed to reduce micromovement and microleakage.  This unique 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. 

 

Designed for Superior Esthetic Outcomes

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, aiming to give clinicians the ability to perform quality esthetic restorations with confidence and ease. 

The Zimmer Biomet dental division represents the joined forces of Zimmer Dental and BIOMET 3i and is a leader in oral health care solutions.

Leader in musculoskeletal healthcare expands Tapered Screw-Vent® Family of dental implants featuring new coronal texturing options with microgrooves

 

(PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL) August 16, 2016Zimmer Biomet (NYSE and SIX: ZBH), a global leader in musculoskeletal healthcare, launches the TSVT and TSVM MP-1® HA Dental Implants, manufactured by Zimmer Dental.  An extension of the successful1 Tapered Screw-Vent® Implant Family, these additional implant configurations are designed to address clinical challenges and preferences for crestal bone maintenance and soft tissue management through coronal texturing options with microgrooves.

 

TSVT and TSVM MP-1 HA Implants feature a highly crystalline MP-1 HA-coated midsection designed to resist dissolution for long-term coating stability, while achieving high levels of bone-to-implant contact.1  The TSVT and TSVM MP-1 HA Implants are available in the same diameters and lengths as existing TSV Implants.  New configuration options include:

 

  • TSVT: MTX® microtexturing to the top of the implant, coronal microgrooves and an MP-1 HA-coated midsection

  • TSVM: 0.5mm machined collar, coronal microgrooves with the MTX Surface and an MP-1 HA- coated midsection

 

“We are excited to offer dental clinicians these contemporary options from Zimmer Biomet to expand their surgical repertoires.  Importantly, the TSVT and TSVM MP-1 HA Implants offer the same primary stability, prosthetic stability and long-term clinical success that have been well documented over the past 15 years with the Tapered Screw-Vent Implant Family,” said David Josza, General Manager of Zimmer Biomet’s dental division.  “As we continue to expand our dental offerings to address a broad range of clinical situations and surgeon preference, we will continue focusing on our customers with an innovative dental portfolio of implant and regenerative solutions, leading service and support capabilities and world-class medical education.”

 

TSVT and TSVM MP-1 HA Implants feature the exclusive Platform Plus™ Technology, which minimizes micromovement and screw-loosening for prosthetic stability and creates highly favorable conditions for long-term crestal bone maintenance:

 

  • Lead-in Bevel – Designed to reduce horizontal stresses better than flat “butt-joint” connections1

  • Friction-Fit Connection – Virtually eliminates abutment micromovement leading to screw loosening1

  • 1.5mm Deep Internal Hex – Shields the abutment retention screw from excess loading, distributing occlusal forces deep into the implant1

(Palm Beach Gardens, FL) – February 19, 2016 – The Zimmer Biomet dental division is pleased to announce the U.S. launch of its new 3i T3 Short Implants, manufactured by Biomet 3i. The company is also offering a comprehensive new surgical kit designed specifically to support site preparation and placement of 3i T3 Short Implants. The 3i T3 Short Implants have been commercially available in Europe and Australia since June of 2015. Dr. Francesco Amato stated, “The 3i T3 Short Implant provides me with an implant treatment option for patients with limited bone height, reducing the need for a sinus elevation or vertical ridge augmentation procedure.”

 

The 3i T3 Short Implants are available in 5 and 6mm diameters with 5 and 6mm lengths and provide a familiar surgical protocol without the need for vertical grafting procedures in some challenging clinical cases. They feature the 3i T3 Surface along the full length of the implant, increased implant/abutment clamping force when using the Gold-Tite® Screw, and instrumentation designed to create a tight implant-to-osteotomy fit, which assists with primary stability. In addition, the system includes new instruments designed specifically for the 3i T3 Short Implants, such as the Flat-bottom Shaping Drills that match the dimensions of the implant and provide a countersink.
