Zimmer Dental Inc., a provider of dental oral rehabilitation products and a subsidiary of Zimmer Holdings, Inc., has announced that it was recently honored with a Silver Medal at the 2013 Medical Design Excellence Awards (MDEA) in the category of “Dental Instruments, Equipment, and Supplies” for its Zimmer®Trabecular Metal™ Dental Implant. Zimmer Dental’s entry was the only dental implant recognized in the global competition, which is sponsored by the Medical Device and Diagnostic Industry (MD+DI).

According to the MD+DI website, the MDEA competition is the premier awards program for the medical technology community, recognizing the achievements of medical product manufacturers and the many people behind the scenes-engineers, scientists, designers, and clinicians-who are responsible for the groundbreaking innovations that are changing the face of healthcare.

This recognition follows the recent coining of the term “osseoincorporation in describing the bone development process made possible with this porous dental implant. Osseoincorporation refers to the growth potential of bone, both onto an implant surface and into an implant structure. The Trabecular Metal Dental Implant features an osteoconductive mid-section, formed from Trabecular Metal material, designed for ingrowth as well as ongrowth in a process new to implant dentistry-osseoincorporation.

Watch this video exploring the Trabecular Metal material:

Trabecular Metal material is a three-dimensional, highly biocompatible material-not an implant surface or coating-with up to 80 percent porosity for bone ingrowth and a structure comparable to cancellous bone. The interconnected porosity is designed to enhance secondary stability through a high volume of ingrowth.
