A dental implant is a small part inserted into the jaw bone to replace the root of the missing tooth. The bone bonds to the surface of the implant, creating an artificial root that forms the basis of individual crowns, bridges, and dentures. The stability of this anchor in the jaw bone provides implants with long-term functionality, just like healthy, natural teeth.
A pioneer and world leader in implant dentistry, Straumann has been researching, developing and manufacturing implants since 1974. In collaboration with clinics, research institutes and universities of international reputation, Straumann is the founder and developer of many technologies and techniques in its field.
Straumann's objective is to improve the success of dental implant treatments and patient experience.

How Does it Work?
With the help of Straumann components, missing teeth in the upper or lower jaw are replaced with a full dental bridge on four to six dental implants. These implants provide a solid and durable support for bridge and artificial teeth. Depending on your situation, a temporary bridge can be placed on the day of surgery or soon after.
Technological innovations from Straumann further optimize the results of your treatment as well as its reliability and convenience:
The SLActive® surface improves the integration of the implant in the bone tissue as well as the predictability of the treatment, accelerating healing times.
The Roxolid® implant material opens up new therapeutic options that may be less invasive for the patient.
With its innovative and easy-to-use dental implant products, Straumann provides an effective solution with many advantages.
What Does Straumann® Dental Implant Treatment Involve?
1. Consultation for Straumann® Dental Implant
The first step to start your Straumann® Dental Implant process will be the online consultation phase. At this stage, our specialist will try to get to know you and your complaint closely to make sure you are a suitable candidate for dental implant treatment. Your health history, allergies, medications you use, your ideas about the process and your priority expectations from treatment are the most important data to determine the most appropriate treatment for you at this stage, and if this is Straumann® Dental Implant, the most suitable dentist / dental clinic for this.
The photo of your tooth/teeth that you have problems with or want to restore with Straumann® Dental Implant will be very useful to understand your eligibility during the online consultation phase.
2. Planning Your Trip and Choosing the Clinic
This is the stage where you choose one of the clinics and/or dentists we offer you according to your needs, and also where we arrange the date and trip plan that suits you upon your choice.
3. Final Consultation with Your Dentist
When you arrive at the dentist's office, you will have a face-to-face consultation with your dentist. He or she will ask you some questions to try to understand your expectations better and also make you understand what you should expect from your Straumann® Dental Implant treatment. Your dentist will explain everything you need to know about dental implants in general and Straumann® Dental Implant specifically and try to simulate the results as much as possible, for you to feel enlightened and well-prepared.
4. Medical Examinations
Before the Straumann® Dental Implant process begins, your dentist will conduct medical tests to make sure that you are in acceptable health status for the treatment. Every patient is required to undergo medical tests to ensure that nothing can hinder the success of the process and if any risk obtained, dentists try to eliminate them first. The extraction of one or more teeth is often done before implant placement. If the conditions are favorable (healthy gums and bones, sufficient bone volume) then this can be done simultaneously.
Things You Should Consider After Straumann® Dental Implant Treatment
In the first days after surgery, you should carefully follow these few instructions:
The most time-consuming step in the process of dental implantology is after the insertion of the titanium screw into the bone. Indeed, it is necessary to respect a time necessary for the fusion of the implant with the jaw bone.
