Roxolid® is a unique dental implant material specifically designed for use in dental implantology. The innovative metal alloy consists of titanium and zirconium. It features the highly osteoconductive SLActive® surface and combines high mechanical strength1,2 with excellent osseointegration properties3,4,5,6,7,8.
Roxolid® SLActive® is available on all Straumann implant lines and diameters and features the new Loxim™ Transfer Piece that allows an easy handling.
The growing clinical evidence further reinforces that Roxolid® SLActive® is Straumann’s best material-surface combination. Thanks to the outstanding mechanical and surface properties, Roxolid® SLActive® Implants allow clinicians to choose smaller sized implants if a GBR procedure can be avoided. As a consequence, dental implant treatment has the potential to become less invasive.
Treating patients without invasive grafting procedures, gives dental professionals the opportunity to offer their patients a faster treatment at a lower cost.
Mechanical tests have demonstrated a significantly higher tensile strength of Roxolid®2 compared to annealed1 or cold-worked titanium2
1 Norm ASTM F67 (states min. tensile strength of annealed titanium)

SLActive® has the topography of the well-documented Straumann® SLA surface. By altering the surface chemistry, the SLActive® surface becomes chemically active and hydrophilic.
The Straumann® Roxolid® SLActive® Implants will be delivered with the new Loxim™ Transfer Piece,
which is connected to the implant with a snap-in mounting. Its new design offers various new features
Straumann® Roxolid® SLActive® Implants offer lots of benefits to clinicians and patients.
