Manhattan Scientifics, Inc. (OTC: MHTX) announced that at today’s historic press conference introducing the use of the first FDA-approved dental implant made with nanotitanium, the company will sign a letter of intent with NanoMet, the Russian enterprise that helped create nanotitanium (titanium on steroids) to participate in the distribution of dental implants in Russia.
The dental implants will be manufactured by Basic Dental Inc., the Albuquerque-based manufacturer of America’s first nanotitanium dental implants, which possess the ability to bond more quickly to human bone and promote faster healing.
Manhattan Scientifics Founder Marvin Maslow said, “We’re living longer and we need new parts. We’re very excited about this agreement, especially considering the tremendous potential of the medical prosthetics market. The bottom line is that dental implants are just the tip of the iceberg of what is estimated to be a $20 billion annual market.”
