About GenTek - Easy. Fast. Genuine.

A highly accurate digitization of the implant positions in the patient’s mouth or from the laboratory model is possible with the Zfx GenTek Intraoral Scanbodies and GenTek Desktop Scanbodies. Their genuine titanium connection base ensures a precise fit with the implant connection for optimal scanning results. Scanning accuracy is also supported by the PEEK material used in the scanbodies, which provides a favorable surface for optical scanners without the need for spray.

Zfx GenTek Digital Scan Analogs are also available, featuring a proprietary anti-rotation functionality, is a first of its kind 3-in-1 digital analog. They function as digital analogs in 3D printed models, scan bodies and conventional analogs used in a stone model.

For the production of hybrid abutments and hybrid abutment crowns, Zimmer Biomet Dental offers Zfx GenTek Ti-Bases equipped with proven Friction-Fit and SureSeal™ technologies along with our unique Gold-Tite® Screw. The genuine ti-bases meet geometrical requirements for Sirona CEREC® blocks for Chairside Milling and inLab CAD/CAM solutions and offer high restorative flexibility as they may be combined with various materials including oxide ceramics, glass ceramics and PMMA.

One-piece titanium custom abutments may be produced in the dental laboratory using Zfx GenTek Pre-milled Abutment Blanks. They have a pre-fabricated genuine connection to ensure accurate fit and superior performance with the implant connection. As the blanks are compatible with Zfx Inhouse5x and all milling machines that work with Medentika PreFace® Abutment Holders, many partner laboratories will be able to provide the desired genuine abutment.

The use of genuine restorative components is instrumental in safeguarding the physical integrity of implant-based restorations. By ensuring a precise fit and tight seal between the components, the potential for biological and technical complications such as tissue inflammation, screw joint failure and screw loosening may be mitigated. In this way, the genuine connection can contribute to the long-term prosthetic stability. Further information is available at www.zfx-dental.com.
