Zimmer Dental Inc., a provider of dental oral rehabilitation products and a subsidiary of Zimmer Holdings, Inc., has announced the availability of Zimmer®Zfx™ CAD/CAM Abutments in titanium, which are fully compatible with the NobelReplace®, Replace Select™ and NobelSpeedy™ Replace™ implant systems from Nobel Biocare. A partnership with Zfx GmbH has moved Zimmer Dental into the CAD/CAM market, offering the Zfx Dental CAD/CAM System, CAD/CAM crown and bridge restorations, and competing implant abutments.

Labs and clinicians can acquire the new Zfx manufactured, Nobel compatible abutments by either fully outsourcing the design to Zimmer Dental’s team of technicians, or designing the abutments and final restorations themselves on the Zfx Dental CAD System and transmitting the data electronically to the Zfx milling center for final production. Zimmer Dental says that, in both instances, the patient receives a premium abutment, manufactured with validated processes and verified against rigorous engineering requirements to ensure quality and fit.

Zimmer Dental will continue to expand the production capabilities of its Zfx milling center in Carlsbad, CA, broadening its CAD/CAM portfolio to include abutments and devices compatible with other implant brands in addition to its full line of Zimmer Dental implants.

Zimmer Dental now distributes Zfx open platform laboratory scanners, CAD software and custom milled components in the U.S. and in select global markets. Each component of the Zfx system is linked together by a workflow that integrates the digitized patient data and facilitates the flow of information to a Zfx milling center. Zimmer’s end goal? Enhanced efficiency between the clinician and lab, and satisfied patients with individualized esthetic restorations on their implants and natural teeth.
