ZimVie Announces Launch of Next-Generation TSX Implant

Newest innovation in ZimVie’s digital dentistry platform is designed for immediacy and peri-implant health


TSXZimVie (ZimVie.com), a global life sciences leader in the dental market, has announced the launch of the TSX implant in the United States. Described as the latest innovation in the company’s platform of surgical, restorative and digital dentistry solutions, TSX implants are designed for immediate extraction and loading protocols, as well as placement predictability and primary stability in soft and dense bone. The TSX implant incorporates features with more than two decades of real-world, clinical data to deliver peri-implant health, crestal bone maintenance, long-term osseointegration, and prosthetic stability.1–8,11–13* Integrated with ZimVie’s end-to-end digital workflows and engineered with surgical and restorative versatility, the TSX implant furthers ZimVie’s commitment to simplify procedures and optimize practice protocols.

The TSX implant follows ZimVie’s joint launch of the T3 PRO Tapered implant and Encode Emergence healing abutment in June 2022.

“I am pleasantly surprised how easily the TSX implants engaged at the apex in extraction sites and was excited to see 50 Ncm of torque using the new extraction protocol,” comments Julius Bunek, DDS, MS, PLLC, of Ann Arbor, Michigan. “Further, I was impressed with how well the implant followed the planned path of insertion and did not track off course. This implant’s compatibility with my existing surgical and prosthetic instrumentation, along with the new design features, are just some of the reasons I plan to use this system in my practice.”

The TSX implant utilizes a contemporary hybrid of ZimVie’s proprietary dual acid-etched (DAE) and MT surface technologies to balance peri-implant health needs in the coronal and subcoronal regions.1–5,11–13* Minimally rough coronal surfaces such as DAE may reduce the risk of biofilm formation and peri-implantitis, while offering excellent osseointegration potential to maintain crestal bone.1–5,10–13* Meanwhile, the subcoronal MTX surface offers high osteoconductive potential, with over two decades of clinical success.7,8*

In addition to advanced surface technology, the TSX implant’s progressive threads and taper are designed to follow the patient’s prepared osteotomy and provide a precisely positioned and esthetically restored implant with high primary stability.1,9*

“We created the TSX implant to improve patient experience and enhance clinicians’ confidence in successful procedures that can be delivered more efficiently,” reports Indraneel Kanaglekar, SVP and president of ZimVie Dental. “We continue to invest in bringing new, innovative products to market that broaden our suite of digitally integrated, efficient and versatile workflows designed to improve patient health and satisfaction.”

ZimVie’s next-generation implant is compatible with the Encode Emergence 3-in-1 healing abutment, impression coping and Scanbody System. To help the surgeon master immediate implants with greater efficiency and more predictability, the TSX implant is surgically compatible with familiar soft and dense bone protocols, existing tools, and the company’s digital dentistry platform.
