Today, BIOMET 3i offers one of implant dentistry’s most comprehensive lines of implants and abutments, augmented by a growing line of site preparation and regenerative products. BIOMET 3i pioneered the development of biologically driven implants, winning worldwide acclaim for the microtextured surface and superior clinical success rates of the Osseotite Implant.
