Materials of the Straumann® Dental Implant System

For every indication and every need.

Looking for the long-term proven standard, exceptional strength for reduced invasiveness* or metal-free esthetics? In addition to our ground-breaking implant surfaces, we also offer a unique portfolio of different dental implant materials. For every indication and the patient’s specific needs and requirements, you can choose between Roxolid® or zirconia.

*If guided bone regeneration can be avoided. 

Straumann® Roxolid®

More than solid – Roxolid®. Reducing invasiveness.*

Roxolid® is a high-performance alloy composed of approximately 15 % zirconium and 85 % titanium, specifically designed by Straumann for use in implant dentistry. It features high tensile strength and excellent osseointegration capabilities, making it the material of choice for reduced invasiveness*. Its properties allow for greater confidence and more treatment options through the placement of reduced diameter implants, especially in cases where bone augmentation can be avoided. 


Higher mechanical strength compared to titanium.1


Preserves vital structures and less invasive grafting procedures.2


More treatment options with smaller implants.


The excellent osseointegration properties of Roxolid® implants in combination with our SLActive® surface  leads to reduced treatment complexity.

Patient acceptance

Less invasive treatment plans (= faster healing and less post-operative discomfort) can help to overcome many patient concerns.


The successful use of Roxolid® has been documented with up to 5-year follow-ups.3

How can we help you?

High-performance Zirconia

Engineered to outperform the gold standard.

For our Straumann® PURE Ceramic Implant system, we use high-performance zirconia ceramic, a simply stronger implant material. The innovative manufacturing process is followed by a 100% proof test where forces are applied that exceed the maximum human bite capability, and only implants that pass this test leave the production site. The successful use of Straumann® PURE Ceramic implants has been documented in numerous clinical indications. 


High-performance zirconia ceramic (Y-TZP) with higher fatigue strength than grade 4 titanium implants.4,5


A 100% proof test is executed in which every single Straumann® PURE Ceramic Implant is tested mechanically before leaving the production site.


Excellent clinical performance with 97.5 % survival and success rates after three years.6
