February 20, 2016

“The 3i T3 Short Implants provides me with an implant treatment option for patients with limited bone height, reducing the need for a sinus elevation or vertical ridge augmentation procedure,” said Dr. Francesco Amato.

Zimmer Biomet recently announced the United States launch of 3i T3 short dental implants, manufactured by Biomet 3i, along with a comprehensive surgical kit designed to support site preparation and placement of these implants.

According to Zimmer Biomet, the short implants are available in 5 and 6 mm diameters with 5 and 6 mm lengths.

“The 3i T3 Short Implants provides me with an implant treatment option for patients with limited bone height, reducing the need for a sinus elevation or vertical ridge augmentation procedure,” said Dr. Francesco Amato.

According to Zimmer Biomet, these new implants also have an increased implant/abutment clamping force when using the Gold-Tite screw and instrumentation designed to create a tight implant-to-osteotomy fit, which assists with primary stability.

The system comes with new instruments designed specifically for the 3i T3 short implants, including flat-bottom shaping drills that match the implant’s dimensions and provide a countersink.
