Basel/Denver, 29 August 2014: Straumann and ClearChoice announced today that the two companies will partner to offer a new range of implant and prosthetic options to the ClearChoice affiliated network of dental implant care centers. The two companies will also explore possibilities to expand the ClearChoice business in North America.

In response to requests from its affiliated doctors, ClearChoice has recently evaluated various tooth replacement solutions offered by the Straumann Group including Straumann’s new range of low-profile angulated abutments and its unique Roxolid ® SLActive ® Bone Level Tapered implant. The combination of these with Straumann’s range of CADCAM options, including full-arch screw-retained bars and bridges, sets a new standard in immediate fixed edentulous solutions. Through Straumann’s Instradent platform, ClearChoice affiliated doctors will also have access to other attractive and effective implant solutions.

 

“ClearChoice performs more implant procedures than any other facility or network in the United States and w e are looking forward to partnering with them to offer more patients with proven, lasting tooth replacement solutions. At the same time, we are working with ClearChoice on other initiatives that could offer benefits for Straumann customers,” said Andy Molnar, Executive Vice President Straumann North America.

 

ClearChoice Management Services CEO, Kevin Mosher, commented:  “Our Clinical Advisory Board evaluated several leading systems and unanimously agreed that the Straumann Group’s broad range of proven products and cutting-edge technologies will provide our affiliated doctors with an excellent range of solutions, enabling them to continue to offer innovative and high level dental implant care to their patients.”

 

Straumann and Instradent will begin to supply ClearChoice in 2015. To meet additional demand for CADCAM prosthetics – especially screw-retained bars and bridges, Straumann has initiated a project to expand its state-of-the-art production facilities in the USA and to increase its team of certified dental technicians there.
