Straumann® Roxolid®

Roxolid® is a metal alloy composed of ~15 % zirconium and ~85 % titanium and has been specifically designed for use in dental implantology. Titanium-zirconium alloys are stronger than pure titanium and have excellent osseointegration and biocompatibility properties. This quality combination is unique in the market with various published clinical studies documenting the successful use of Roxolid® Implants in numerous indications.
