The Straumann® Bone Level Tapered Implant offers excellent primary stability in soft bone and fresh extraction sockets. The tapered form adequately compresses the underprepared osteotomy (Fig. 1).
It also lets you effectively master your patient’s limited anatomy such as facial undercut, converging root tips, concave jaw structure or narrow atrophied ridges (Fig. 2).
Building on the clinically proven features of the Straumann® Bone Level Implant, our Bone Level Tapered Implant introduces the powerful combination of Roxolid®, SLActive®, Bone Control Design™, CrossFit® connection, prosthetic diversity, plus a tapered implant body.
Enjoy great peace of mind with all our established benefits – and the benefit of the new apically tapered design for excellent primary stability even in compromised bone situations.
