in immediate loading
To enhance confidence
in all treatments
*Compared to SLA. Based on results of a preclinical study in animals (fox hounds); the preclinical testing is not correlated to long-term clinical outcomes in humans.
Enhanced bone formation**,2
Significantly higher formation of new bone aggregate
**Based on results of a pre-clinical study in animals (mini-pig). The pre-clinical testing is not correlated to long-term clinical outcomes in human.
Setting the standard for success.
Performance beyond imagination.
Together with leading clinicians worldwide, Straumann has studied the clinical performance of SLActive implants under challenging treatment protocols to demonstrate the outstanding healing capacity of the SLActive surface.
As new insights emerge and new data becomes available, discover how you can benefit from the truly phenomenal performance of SLActive to maximize your patients’ healing capabilities.
Implant survival rate in immediate loading after 10 years3
Randomized controlled multicenter study (96 patients, 127 implants)
with long-lasting results.
Immediate loading allows the clinician to place a prosthetic restoration on the same day as the implant. However, this demanding protocol carries a higher risk of failure due to premature loading of a healing implant.
- Long-term data from a randomized, controlled, multicenter study demonstrates impressive performance of SLActive® with immediate loading.
- In fact, the SLActive implants delivered a 10-year survival rate of 98.2 % in this challenging protocol.3
Enhanced bone regeneration.
Even at compromised sites.
Enhanced bone grafting**
Bone defects can greatly compromise the predictability of osseointegration.
In a recent preclinical study2, SLActive showed significantly higher formation of new bone aggregate within eight weeks compared to the standard Straumann® SLA® hydrophobic surface.
