My guiding principle at work has always been to treat patients such as I wanted to be treated myself or as I would treat one of my family members. So the choice is simple - never ever use copycats! Not for implants and also not for any of the prosthetic elements. Our study shows excellent long term results for the Straumann dental implant system. During the 10 years in function we have not seen any fracture of the abutment, abutment screw or assembly screw. I can therefore strongly recommend the use of original Straumann Implants and their prosthetic components.
