Straumann® Soft Tissue Level implants
The Straumann® Soft Tissue Level implant has a built-in smooth collar that reaches into the soft tissue, shaping it to eliminate the need for gingiva formers as well as time-consuming soft tissue management procedures. It is designed specifically for one-stage surgery, avoiding the need to access submerged implants at bone level. Over a number of years, clinical evidence has shown high treatment success and predictable long-term results for the Straumann® Soft Tissue Level Implant.
