New Teeth with Nanotechnology from BIOMET 3i!

VORHEES, NJ | Posted on May 8th, 2007

"The new NanoTite Implant represents a notable advancement in dental implant technology," says Alan Meltzer, D.M.D., one of the first periodontists to offer his patients the NanoTite Implant at his New Jersey practice.

The NanoTite Implant builds upon the benefits of BIOMET 3i's OSSEOTITE® Implant by adding deposits of nano-scale calcium phosphate crystals to approximately 50% of the surface. These nano-scale deposits create a complex surface on the implant that, according to pre-clinical studies, appears to play a key role in how the implant bonds with the bone. Human bone recognizes calcium phosphate as being biologically natural, allowing the bone and implant to bond during healing.

The word "nano" in Greek actually means "extremely small" or one billionth. The actual size of the calcium deposits on the NanoTite Implant are as small as 20 nanometers and can best be seen at 20,000X magnification!

Patient applications and benefits of the NanoTite Implant include use to replace single or multiple missing teeth due to cavities, decay, trauma or disease. The NanoTite Implant, like all dental implants, is designed to help preserve bone structure and natural facial contours. Additionally, the NanoTite Implant may help patients increase overall confidence due to a brand new smile!

"I think It's One Nano Step For Man, One Giant Leap For Implant Dentistry!" adds Dr. Meltzer.
