Straumann Group presents CIM dental innovations in Cologne

April 7, 2017

Straumann, Basel, Switzerland, launched a number of new products and solutions at IDS 2017 in Cologne, Germany, March 21-25, 2017. In addition, the group presented a number of innovations aimed at both the premium and non-premium tooth-replacement markets.

Straumann introduced its first ceramic implant – with a monotype design – three years ago, having developed a specialised ceramic material for dental implants, as well as new production and testing methods to ensure high reliability.

Encouraged by excellent clinical results with the monotype, the company reported that it has overcome a number of mechanical hurdles to develop a two-piece screw-retained solution that is easier to place and more flexible to restore than a monotype. However, like the monotype versions, it retains a highly aesthetic, tooth-like appearance and features Straumann’s ZLA® surface for enhanced osseointegration.

Neodent also used the IDS to introduce its new two-piece ceramic implant, planned for launch in 2018. Differentiated by its bone-level tapered design, screw-retained ceramic abutment and single/multi-unit applications, it will be produced using Ceramic Injection Moulding and supplied through Maxon Dental, the new joint venture between Straumann and Maxon Motor.
