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 3.1 mmD 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 3.1 mmD 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 3.1 mmD 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. In addition, the implant performed exceptionally well in insertion torque and torsional yield strength testing.
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.
