Zimmer Biomet dental and spine spinoff ZimVie (Nasdaq:ZIMV) announced today that it launched the TSX dental implant in the U.S.
Westminster, Colorado-based ZimVie designed its TSX implants for immediate extraction and loading protocols. They also offer placement predictability and primary stability in soft and dense bone.
The company developed TSX to deliver peri-implant health, crestal bone maintenance, long-term osseointegration and prosthetic stability. According to a news release, the implant furthers ZimVie’s commitment to simplifying procedures and optimizing practice protocols.
ZimVie debuted the TSX implant last week at the American Academy of Periodontology’s annual meeting in Phoenix, Arizona. Its launch follows the June launch of the T3 Pro tapered implant and Encode emergence healing abutment.
TSX utilizes a contemporary hybrid of ZimVie’s proprietary dual acid-etched (DAE) and MTX surface technologies. It balances peri-implant health needs in the coronal and sub-coronal regions. The implant also features progressive threads and taper. This follows the patient’s prepared osteotomy and provides a precisely positioned, aesthetically restored implant with high primary stability. ZimVie designed the implant with compatibility with the Encode system.
“We created the TSX Implant to improve patient experience and enhance clinicians’ confidence in successful procedures that can be delivered more efficiently,” said Indraneel Kanaglekar, SVP and president of ZimVie Dental. “We continue to invest in bringing new, innovative products to market that broaden our suite of digitally integrated, efficient, and versatile workflows designed to improve patient health and satisfaction.”
