Sintx Technologies engages Ascendiant Capital to seek dental partnerships
SINTX Technologies announced that it has retained Ascendiant Capital Markets as investment bank and advisor to identify strategic opportunities in the dental space. The company said, "Over the last nine months, SINTX has made further advancements in its portfolio of dental technologies, beyond the manufacturing and development of dental implants made from its silicon nitride. The marked expansion in opportunity - which is backed up by successful testing - encouraged SINTX to engage Ascendiant Capital to pursue a wide range of potential partnerships." The new technologies include extensive work on zirconia dental implants, and the 3-D laser surface functionalization of both titanium metal, and zirconia ceramics used to make modern dental implants.
