The Straumann® Soft Tissue Level Implant System (AU)
Preserving peri-implant health1
Odds ratios of peri-implantitis nine years after implant placement1
Astra® Tech Implant System | 3.5
98.3% Nobel Biocare Implants with the TiUnite® surface
96.6% Astra Tech implants with TiOblast® surface
All Straumann TL implants with SLA® surface.
Results from a large retrospective study1 of dental implants in a broad clinical setting with 9 year follow-up, showed that the odds ratio of peri-implantitis 9 years after implant therapy was more than three times lower with Straumann® Soft Tissue Level SLA implants than with Nobel Biocare or AstraTech Implant System implants.

Reduces complexity in your workflow
Built-in smooth neck shapes the soft tissue, thus minimizing the need for time-consuming soft tissue management procedures.
One-stage surgery with integrated soft tissue management
Restoring with a solid abutment is like restoring a natural tooth preparation.
Easy to maintain due to height of the machined collar, with clear access to implant connection, even in the posterior region
A solution for every clinical need
Versatile implant options maximize treatment flexibility
(2.8 and 1.8 mm neck)
Wide choice of prosthetic solutions
Precise and flexible positioning with the synOcta® connection
Original: Perfect fit with original components
New impression components
Maximize precision and reliability of your restorations with the new impression components.
Dr. French: “…it makes more sense from the peri-implant health perspective…”
Dr. Higginbottom: “…easier than restoring natural teeth …”
Dr. Martin: “… very easy to confirm seating of multiple units …”

In total there were 13 abutment related complications (10x occlusal screw loosening, 1x occlusal screw fracture, 1x abutment loosening, 1x abutment fracture) Wittneben et al.(2014, p. 5)
