Roxolid® is a high-performance alloy composed of 15 % zirconium and 85 % titanium, specifically designed by Straumann for use in implant dentistry. It features high tensile strength and excellent osseointegration capabilities, making it the material of choice for reduced invasiveness. Its properties allow for greater confidence and more treatment options through the placement of reduced diameter (Straumann® Bone Level Tapered Implant Ø 2.9 mm) and shorter (Straumann® Standard Plus 4 mm Short Implant) implants, especially in cases where bone augmentation can be avoided.
For our Straumann® PURE Ceramic Implant system, we use high-performance zirconia ceramic. The innovative manufacturing process is followed by a 100% proof test where forces are applied that exceed the maximum human bite capability, and only implants that pass the test leave the production site. The successful use of Straumann® PURE Ceramic implants has been documented in numerous clinical indications.
