The new Straumann® Bone Level Tapered Implant provides an optimized choice for implant treatment. It provides a unique combination of mechanics and biology for ease of use and enhanced primary stability. The unique Roxolid® material has been specifically designed for dental implantology and delivers outstanding mechanical results. Combined with the SLActive® surface, Straumann delivers an excellent implant system with outstanding osseointegration and healing properties.
The new Straumann® Screw-retained Abutment provides a wide range of prosthetic options for screw-retained restorations. A low abutment profile as well as various angulations and gingiva heights offer you flexibility to provide an individual solution for edentulous patients, including restoring posterior-tilted implants.26
