New Zimmer Sinus Lift Balloon
The Zimmer Sinus Lift Balloon was created to simplify the delicate sinus lift procedure. It offers a convenient option for clinicians and aids in creating a more positive patient experience.
The minimally invasive Zimmer Sinus Lift Balloon allows for improved vertical sinus elevation results and gives clinicians added security when performing a traditional sinus lift procedure — protecting the Schneiderian membrane from tearing, which can significantly disrupt an implant case. The balloon instrument is also well-suited for effectively measuring the required bone grafting material. For example, 1cc of saline, which is used to inflate the balloon, is equal to 1cc of grafting material.
The Zimmer Sinus Lift Balloon is available in three convenient, single-use configurations for optimum efficiency and ease-of-use. The angled design is ideal for lateral window procedures, the straight model is well suited for a crestal approach, and the popular micro-mini design can be used for either of these indications.
