More than solid – Roxolid®.

Roxolid® is a groundbreaking material specifically designed for the use in dental implantology. The titanium-zirconium alloy is stronger than pure titanium3,4 and has excellent osseointegration properties5,6,7. This combination of properties is unique in the market – there is no other metallic alloy which unifies high mechanical strength and osteoconductivity.
