Similar to a natural tooth, plaque-forming bacteria can build up on the base of dental implants, resulting in an inflammation of the surrounding soft- and hard-tissue. At Straumann Group, we focus on developing solutions to successfully prevent, diagnose and treat peri-implant complications.
Healthy peri-implant conditions¹˙²⁴
Ensure predictable, long-term treatment success, benefit from clinically proven solutions.
Broadened treatment options
Offer a broad range of dental treatment solutions and services to prevent, diagnose and treat peri-implant complications.
Time and cost saving
Reduce complexity by one-stop shop solution and treatment guidance, Facilitate patient acceptance for recalls and home care.
Free online Assessments to identify your knowledge gaps.

As the world’s leading company, Straumann Group has taken the initiative to work together with top experts to address the issue of peri-implantitis.
Peri-implant complications can lead to implant loss. But it doesn’t have to be.

They are among us – the cities of oral microbes
Like bustling office blocks of busy cities, dental biofilms consist of towering microbial communities in which the resident bacterial cells form mutualistic partnerships and exchange interspecies messages.
