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.
