Artifact-Free Imaging

The biomaterial used in NITRO allows for artifact-free imaging, enabling clear visualization of the implant and surrounding tissues

Next-generation Nitro implants harness all the innate advantages of silicon nitride,
in combination with innovative enhancements for an even greater osteogenic and bacteriostatic response.

Macro-Texturing

Macro-texturing provides even greater surface area throughout the implant, increasing bony contact and enhancing innate bacteriostatic properties

FUN SILICON NITRIDE FACT: 
In 1990 scientists found naturally occurring silicon nitride in meteorite stardust, suggesting intergalactic origins from the beginning of time.
