The design of the Straumann® TLX Implant takes into account key biological principles of hard and soft tissue healing.
DESIGNED FOR IMMEDIATE PROTOCOLS
• Fully tapered implant design for optimized primary stability combined with the predictability of Tissue Level Implant
• A narrow implant diameter option, 3.75 mm for all indications
PERI-IMPLANT HEALTH PRESERVATION
• Reduced risk of nesting bacteria
• Optimized cleansability with the connection at the soft-tissue level
• Immediate soft-tissue attachment preservation
SIMPLICITY AND EFFICIENCY
• A one-stage process with restoration at soft-tissue level allows you to use chair time more efficiently
• Ease of restoration even in the posterior region
• Highly efficient treatment protocol thanks to straightforward conventional and digitally integrated workflows
DYNAMIC BONE MANAGEMENT
• Redistribution of native bone and control over insertion torque
• Swiss precision and quality with Roxolid® material and SLActive® surface
«The future in implant dentistry is with neck designs combining a smooth surface in the trans-mucosal area with a micro-rough surface inside the bone. As the Derks study showed, moving the micro-gap away from the bone and having a smooth surface in the peri-implant sulcus reduces the risk of peri-implant complications. TLX combines this concept with an innovative endosteal design, ensuring optimal primary stability, and will open a range of new clinical possibilities.»
