Zimmer Biomet Holdings, a global medical technology provider, has announced the North American and European launch of OverdenSURE, a new overdenture attachment system for Zimmer Biomet dental implants.
The OverdenSURE product portfolio comprises abutments, restorative components and tooling, providing customers with everything needed to upgrade denture-wearing patients to implant-retained overdentures. This new product line features a zirconium nitride abutment coating for aesthetics and function, and a wider range of abutment sizes for increased restorative flexibility — all wrapped in a classic system design that is intuitive to the user.
With an estimated 10% of the world’s population being partially edentulous or edentulous, soft-tissue-supported dentures continue to be a source of chronic residual ridge resorption, phonetic challenges, a loose or poor fit, decreased masticatory function, or facial collapse in spite of advances in denture prosthodontics.
Together with Zimmer Biomet’s dental implant solutions, OverdenSURE abutments are an option for overdenture restorations, providing increased prosthetic stability and retention for patients wearing conventional dentures.
“We’re excited to introduce our newest line of product solutions to clinicians and patients as part of our already broad dental portfolio,” said Indraneel Kanaglekar, president, Zimmer Biomet Dental. “This offering will allow us to better serve our patients’ needs, providing them with a comprehensive and affordable product line that allows them to upgrade their traditional dentures to implant-retained overdentures — significantly improving their quality of life.”
