What Are the Benefits?

Having a stock of implant parts on hand can help speed up the process of completing cases for your patients. With fewer delays, you can get the job done quicker and with more efficiency. Additionally, if you have a large number of Zimmer-compatible cases, it is beneficial to keep a handful of these components in stock as they are commonly used in many dental labs. This will make ordering easy and efficient when needed.

Another great benefit to stocking implant components is that it helps reduce costs associated with shipping fees. If you order components daily or weekly, shipping costs can add up quickly—especially if you are ordering small amounts each time. However, by keeping a larger inventory on hand and ordering bulk amounts when necessary, you can save money over time by avoiding high shipping fees. Also, many companies like DentLot offer free shipping on orders over $50 or more which is another incentive to purchase bulk orders rather than multiple smaller ones throughout the week or month.

For smaller laboratories, however, there may not be enough reason to stock components because of their limited size and workloads. In this case, ordering daily or weekly may be better suited for their needs as they do not need large quantities at one time which would require them to invest in keeping an inventory of components on hand at all times.


Overall, there are several benefits to keeping an inventory of dental implant components on hand in both large and small laboratories alike. Stocking these parts helps speed up the process of case completion while also reducing costly shipping fees associated with ordering small amounts frequently throughout the week or month. Additionally, companies like DentLot offer free shipping on orders over $50 or more which makes stocking even more attractive for those who need larger quantities at any given time. Ultimately, weighing the pros and cons will help determine whether it is best for you to keep an inventory on hand or order supplies daily/weekly as needed for your laboratory's needs.
