ANDOVER, Massachusetts – (MAY 6, 2014) – The Straumann Dental Implant System expands to include the NEW Straumann® Screw-Retained Abutment portfolio for single unit, partially dentate and fixed edentulous restorations. It offers dental professionals an opportunity to provide patients with an edentulous treatment option which is customized to their individual needs and expectations.
From treatment planning and implant placement to final restorations, the treatment process is seamless for the patient.
Implant planning is possible by way of2D conventional implant and prosthetic planning based on (CB) CT scanning or x-rays. Additionally, 3D digital implant planning is made available through coDiagnostiXTM software for predictable results and treatment efficiency.
Straumann® Bone Level Roxolid® SLActive® Implantsare designed to provide a solid foundation for implant treatment, featuring the combination of Straumann’s award-winning technologies - the Roxolid material for high tensile strength1 and the SLActive surface for faster osseointegration.2 With outstanding mechanical and biological properties, Roxolid Implants may allow the use of smaller-diameter implants with the same clinical performance as regular-diameter titanium implants.3
TheStraumann® Screw-Retained Abutments provide a wide range of prosthetic options for fixed edentulous and screw-retained restorations. A sleek profile designed for optimal tissue management, various angulations and gingival heights offer the flexibility to provide an individual solution for edentulous patients.
The Screw-Retained Abutments are designed to achieve excellent esthetic and functional results. The abutment dimensions allow for fixed screw-retained full arch restorations according to the patients’ individual clinical situation, even in cases where tilted implants are inevitable. The new Straumann Screw-Retained Abutments are designed to provide flexibility when treating edentulous patients with Straumann® Bone Level implants. Furthermore, the portfolio allows for the possibility of conventional immediate temporization.
