FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Rick Sajewski Sr. Product Manager, Implant Systems 561-776-6874 Announcing A Reflection Of The Latest Advancement In Implant Dentistry - The NanoTite™ Tapered ImplantPalm Beach Gardens, FL - (August 15, 2007) - BIOMET 3i has combined the forces of dentistry andnanotechnology to launch a new addition to the NanoTite Implant family of products. The NanoTite TaperedImplant offers:- Next Generation Surface Technology: The NanoTite Implant builds on the success of the OSSEOTITE® Surfaceby creating a more complex surface topography, rendering the implant a Bone Bonding™ Surface by the interlockingof the newly formed cement line matrix of bone with the implant surface. Preclinical studies indicate the NanoTiteImplant nanotopography provides a greater rate and extent of osseointegration as compared to the OSSEOTITEImplant Surface*.- A True Tapered Shape that more closely approximates the shape of a natural tooth root.- Innovative Thread Design: Clinicians may achieve initial implant stability from threads that widen laterally whileextending to the apical end, providing stability throughout the length of the implant while maximizing Bone-To-Implant-Contact (BIC). The thread angle, depth and pitch produce an anchoring "bite in bone" response.- A Domed Apical End which potentially reduces trauma and is desirable in areas where implant placement closelyapproximates vital structures like the alveolar nerve or sinus membrane.- Spiral Incremental Cutting Edge: Progressive cutting edges, in a helical pattern with trailing thread relief,provide self-tapping for ease of insertion. The cupped recesses act as repositories for bone shavings, blood and thegrowth factors these contain, potentially offering a "head start" to osseointegration.The NanoTite Tapered Implant is conveniently color-coded and corresponds with full-length taps for ease ofplacement in dense bone and is available in the Certain® QuickSeat® Internal and External Connectionconfigurations for clinician preference. Four diameters and five lengths offer surgical flexibility.
