Straumann® Ceramic Healing Abutments

The first step to harmonious soft-tissue healing.

The Straumann® Ceramic Healing Abutments offer favorable conditions for soft-tissue attachment, hereby supporting a healthy peri-implant environment. Their well-proven zirconia material also helps surgeons and prosthodontists looking for less plaque attachment and enhanced soft tissue healing from the day of surgery.

  • Favorable soft-tissue attachment

    In general, more favorable soft tissue attachment around zirconia than around titanium, with blood circulation similar to that around natural tooth.1-2

  • Designed for healthy peri-implant environment

    Less plaque attachment on zirconia due to smoother surface compared to titanium.2-3,8-9 

  • Ease of use

    Aspiration-security thanks to integrated screw.
    Color-coding to clearly identify the corresponding prosthetic platform.

  • Esthetics from the day of surgery

    Ceramic abutments for the healing phase. 
    Final restoration using Straumann® Cares® ceramic options.
