Harmonized design combined with very high manufacturing precision
Straumann® knows the exact dimensions, tolerances and material composition of its implants, and can therefore optimally harmonize the design between Straumann® implants and their corresponding Straumann® prosthetic components.
High-precision manufacturing and an exceedingly thorough inspection process ensure consistent quality of all original Straumann® components.
Third party manufacturers attempt to copy Straumann® prosthetic components but cannot equal clinical* performance. Compromises such as poor connection between the implant and abutment can lead to complications. Practitioners therefore should insist on genuine Straumann® components.

Excellent mechanical performance
Convincing fatigue test study results
The perfect match of Straumann® implants and abutments results in an excellent fatigue test performance.
This is highlighted by the following study in which the effect of screw loosening was investigated for both original and non-original implant / abutment connections.

Trust in a clinical long-term proven system
With an almost 40-year clinical success story, Straumann® implants and their corresponding Straumann® prosthetic components have proven to stand the test of time – in an impressive and convincing way.
Thanks to consistent evidence-based research, continuous optimizations and our passion for quality, we have made a crucial contribution to making implant dentistry safer.

Availability of prosthetic components for old Straumann® implants assured
With Straumann® Classic we take care of millions of patients worldwide, who have had placed Straumann® implants with original Straumann® prosthetic components. By making available exactly matching prosthetic components for all our implants from as early as 1974, patients, dentists and dental labs can put aside one considerable source of trouble in repeat restorations.
Occlusal screw fracture of a 24-year old Straumann® Type-F implant in regio 21. The screw fragment was stuck in the implant thread. The former dentist assumed prosthetic components were no longer available and solved the case with a clasp prosthesis. The patient was unhappy with this situation and therefore asked for a better solution.
The screw fragment was removed with support from Straumann®. Thanks to the Straumann® Classic program, the implant could be provided with the required prosthetic components.
The case was restored with a state-of-the-art all-ceramic crown.
