The Straumann SLA® surface is one of the best documented surfaces in dental implantology. Over the last 20 years, implants with Straumann® SLA® surface have delivered excellent long-term results with documented success rates to match. More than 100 clinical and preclinical SLA® studies have been published in peer-reviewed journals including those with more than 10 years of observation time.
