Foundation of MEDENTiKA®

Our Implant Portfolio Today

In fact, today our implant portfolio already consists of 4 different implant systems.

Titanium base 2nd Generation

In 2011, the 2nd generation titanium base was developed. With two chimney heights and its adapted emergence profile, it offers more variety.

PreFace abutments - The Digital Game Changer

In 2013 we developed our MEDENTiKA® PreFace abutments - The digital game changer. The PreFace abutments are available in CoCr or titanium.

Aquisition by Straumann

First Production Site - Renningen

However, as we grew as a company, we needed more capacity. So we founded our first production site in Renningen near Stuttgart.
This allowed us to maintain our ‘Made in Germany’ philosophy.
