Designed for maximum flexibility with a minimum number of components, the highly versatile Straumann Dental Implant System covers all indications and preferences – from standard applications to super-esthetic individualized CADCAM solutions.
Straumann pioneered the Soft Tissue Level Implant, which simplifies soft tissue management and prosthetic restoration, saving time, discomfort and cost. Lasting reliability might be its greatest benefit: the Straumann SLA Soft Tissue Level Implant has been on the market for more than 15 years and is backed by ten-year clinical results showing survival and success rates of 99% and 97% respectively, with zero implant fractures1. High survival rates after 9 years were also reported in a landmark study published in 2014.2

In contrast to soft tissue level designs, bone level implants have prosthetic connections that are below the gums, at or close to the crest of the jaw bone. While advantages are claimed for each design, market research shows that the choice of implant type is driven mainly by user preference. Today, more than a
third of the implants we sell are Bone Level. The majority of implants placed worldwide have Bone Level tapered designs, and their popularity is increasing. This is why we have entered the segment with our ‘new generation’ BLT, made of Roxolid and finished with the SLActive surface.
with proven osseointegration properties: The SLActive® surface is designed to offer shorter healing times, improved bone formation and therefore reduced risk of implant loss.1
Roxolid® is a groundbreaking material specifically designed for the use in dental implantology. The titanium-zirconium alloy is stronger than pure titanium6,7 and has excellent osseointegration properties8-10. This combination of properties is unique in the market – there is no other metallic alloy which unifies high mechanical strength and osteoconductivity.
Ceramic materials offer a distinct esthetic advantage to metals in dental applications. Furthermore,
ceramic provides a good biocompatible alternative for patients asking for metal-free implants.
The Straumann PURE ceramic implant is the result of a 7-year development program and is designed for esthetic, metal-free treatments. The esthetic properties are exceptional with a translucent ivory color – like natural tooth roots – and a specially-developed ZLA surface to accelerate the healing process and promote highly predictable bone integration.
To ensure the reliability of our ceramic implants we designed a new testing method, which checks mechanical strength through 360 degrees. Every single Straumann PURE implant undergoes this ‘proof test’ – a level of quality checking that is exceptional in the dental implant industry.
Straumann implants are complemented by a range of standard and custom prosthetic components (abutments), which connect the implant to the crown of the replacement tooth. Straumann supplies the corresponding precision instruments, guided surgery tools and handling components.
