Straumann® Bone Level Tapered implants

The Straumann® Bone Level Tapered Implant offers excellent primary stability in soft bone and fresh extraction sockets. The tapered form adequately compresses the underprepared osteotomy. It also lets you effectively master your patient’s limited anatomy such as facial undercut, converging root tips, concave jaw structure or narrow atrophied ridges.
