The Zimmer Biomet dental division announced the U.S. launch of its new 3i T3 Short Implants, manufactured by Biomet 3i. The company is also offering a comprehensive surgical kit designed specifically to support site preparation and placement of 3i T3 Short Implants, which have been commercially available in Europe and Australia since June 2015.
Available in 5mm and 6mm diameters with 5mm and 6mm lengths, 3i T3 Short Implants 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 to assist with primary stability. New instruments designed specifically for the 3i T3 Short Implants, including Flat-bottom Shaping Drills, are included in the system.
