Zimmer Dental Inc., a leading provider of dental oral rehabilitation products and a subsidiary of Zimmer Holdings, Inc., is pleased to announce an exclusive agreement with curasan AG, to globally distribute innovative synthetic bone grafting materials to the dental market under the IngeniOs™ brand.
IngeniOs HA Synthetic Bone Particles are a 100% non-biologic, 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. With up to 80% porosity and minimal resorption over time, IngeniOs HA is designed to provide long-lasting support of vascularized bone formation and exhibits radiopacity for easy x-ray identification.
For clinicians interested in a 100% non-biologic, resorbable solution, Zimmer Dental offers 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 indicated for a variety of dental procedures, including alveolar ridge augmentations, filling periodontal defects, extractions, and sinus lifts.
The IngeniOs product line expands Zimmer Dental’s comprehensive regenerative portfolio (which includes a variety of allograft and bovine options for both hard and soft tissue augmentation procedures) with viable synthetic hard tissue regenerative options.
“Zimmer Dental continues to demonstrate a strong commitment to improving patients’ lives,” said Harold C. Flynn, Jr., Zimmer Dental President. “This agreement strengthens our industry-leading regenerative portfolio by offering a variety of synthetic options to our diverse customer base. By providing world-class dental implants, tried-and-true restorative options, and cutting-edge regenerative solutions, we give clinicians the flexibility to serve their patients with the most comprehensive portfolio in the industry.”
