Specific events to mark the anniversary have yet to be announced, but the company known for its OSSEOTITE® implants and Encode® Impression System is kicking off its quarter century celebration by highlighting the successful innovations it has introduced to the marketplace. The company has developed implant systems designed for faster and more successful osseointegration, looked for ways to make the implant process faster and less disruptive for patients lives and embraced digital dentistry by creating workflows that allow clinicians and lab technicians to capture critical implant information via digital impressions.

BIOMET 3i recently launched its Institute for Implant and Reconstructive Dentistry to further educational opportunities on this growing sector of the dental industry and continues to introduce new implant and restorative systems to the clinical and laboratory marketplaces.

Dental Products Report and Dental Lab Products wish BIOMET 3i a happy anniversary and look forward to covering the next 25 years of innovations this company will bring to the implant marketplace.

BIOMET 3i Marks 25th Anniversary

Palm Beach Gardens, FL – (June 25, 2012) – BIOMET 3i, a world leader in oral reconstructive devices, is pleased to announce its 25th anniversary.

Founded as Implant Innovations Inc. (“3i”) on May 27, 1987 by Dr. Richard Lazzara, a periodontist, and Keith Beaty, an engineer, the company has grown to 1,000 employees with its global headquarters located in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. BIOMET 3i is recognized for its cutting-edge product innovations in the development of biologically driven implants; winning worldwide acclaim for the microtextured surface of the OSSEOTITE® Implant, which has more than 15 years of documented research. More recently, BIOMET 3i introduced a Bone Bonding® NanoTite™ Surface with a complex architecture at the nano-scale, which produces a mechanical interlocking of the newly formed cement line matrix of bone with the implant surface. BIOMET 3i has also been recognized for its contributions to new dental technologies, such as Digital Dentistry, with the development of its patented BellaTek™ Encode® Impression System. At the core of this system is the BellaTek™ Encode® Healing Abutment, which incorporates special codes embedded on the occlusal surface that translate the dental implant information needed without the clinician having to make an implant level impression. In addition, the impression of the BellaTek™ Encode® Healing Abutment can now be taken with an intraoral scanner allowing for a quicker, more comfortable impression process for the patient.

Superior customer service and supporting continuous learning for dental health care providers have been at the core of the BIOMET 3i Business. This includes the recent launch of the new Institute for Implant and Reconstructive Dentistry (IIRD®), a state-of-the-art learning facility located in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. with affiliated locations in Mexico and Italy that combines leading-edge technology with evidence-based dentistry.

BIOMET 3i has been a leader in the dental industry for 25 years through continuous innovation, education, new market expansion and long standing relationships with global dental schools and societies. BIOMET 3i will continue to focus on treatment solutions that help to optimize dental care for patients, continuing to make implant dentistry a more widely accepted form of treatment. More specifically, BIOMET 3i will continue to focus on sustainable aesthetics, accelerated treatment times, digitally driven patient and practice management and comprehensive tissue management.

BIOMET 3i will be celebrating this milestone at key events throughout 2012.

“My dream to better the lives of patients through scientific, evidence-based research has now been fully realized. At BIOMET 3i, our primary goal is to provide clinicians and their patients the simplest, most aesthetic outcomes. I couldn’t be more proud of what we’ve accomplished throughout the past 25 years,” says Dr. Lazzara.

President Maggie Anderson agrees, “It’s a pleasure to continue Dr. Lazarra’s vision. The strategies and mission of the founders continue to resonate in everything that we do. We look forward to another 25 years of successful innovations.”
