Straumann Implants have been around dental treatment research for many years. Straumann Group was established in 1954 and the HeadQuarter is based in Basel/Switzerland. Their mission is to research, develop, manufacture, and supply dental instruments such as: tools, biomaterials, CAD/CAM prosthetics, digital equipment, software, and to help with restorative, preventative, and, orthodontic dental treatments. Dentafly support team prepared this article because of the variability Straumann Implant prices in Turkey.
Straumann Implant Types Available in Turkey
There are 7 different types of implants under Straumann itself. Those different types of implants are collected under 5 different Straumann Dental Implant Systems.
- Standard Dental Implant
- Standard Plus Implant
- Tapered Effect Implant
- Bone Level Implant
- Bone Level Tapered Implant
All these systems are using two different materials
- High-performance Zirconia
The need for the use of the implants differ from patient to patient. Every case is different. Most of the implant types are using Roxolid material which is a high performance alloy composed of 15% zirconia and 85% titanium which give high mechanical strength compared to titanium implants. Roxolid material is much stronger than standard titanium grade 4.
The use of Zirconia in dental dentistry began with crowns. Monolithic Zirconia is a material that is close to our own organic teeth and just as strong. Combining the zirconia with CAD/CAM technology to produce the teeth is much easier. The design, shape, and the color options have increased and the patient chooses their dream teeth. Unlike old porcelain crowns, Zirconia can be made Monolithic, which means using only Zirconia to produce the teeth without needing a metal base like porcelain veneers. Many implant companies have begun to research and perfect the use of Zirconia material for their implants. Straumann has been working on Zirconia implants for over 30 years. It is proof tested to be reliable just like a titanium implant. They are using their clinically tested and proved ZLA surface on High-performance Zirconia Implants.
Straumann offers their Roxolid material and SLActive surface to their both Bone Level and Tissue Level implants. The difference between Bone Level and Tissue Level implant is as it is suggested in the name, the placement of the implant. The implant surgeon will choose which one is the best implant type for the patient and use the most compatible one with the jaw bone density length, width, and quality of the patient.

What is SLActive?
SLActive is a special surface that was founded by Straumann after SLA surface. After years of researching and perfecting the SLA surface, they have started to use SLActive surface to increase the success rate of the immediate restoration in dental treatments. Classical SLA was introduced in 1998.
The surface is based on a large-grit sandblasting technique that generates a macro-roughness on the titanium surface. This is followed by acid-etching that superposes a micro-roughness. The resulting topography offers an ideal structure for cell attachment (Straumann).
SLActive surface increases the Osseointegration which reduces the healing period from 6-8 weeks to 2-4 weeks. SLActive also increases the predictability of the success rate of the implant. Increase in bone preservation and regeneration is seen during clinical trials over the years.
SLActive allows Straumann dental implants to be used for the immediate restoration treatments. Patient does not have to go to the dentist’s office for a second time to complete the treatment with the crown on top of the implant. This method has proven itself for most cases of patients. It is comfortable for most of the patients who travel a lot or live abroad. Straumann has created a new type of Bone Level Implant that has a different design with the innovative surface SLActive.
What is Straumann BLX?
Straumann BLX is the master of all immediate restoration treatments. Straumann BLX implants provides:
- The renovative design of the BLX
- SLActive surface that the increase of the osseointegration and bone cell regeneration
- Roxolid material, 15% zirconia and 85% titanium
increases the success rate of the immediate restoration. The results are predictable that Straumann, just like all of their implants, grants life-time of guarantee for their implants. The design and the shape of the screw side of the Straumann BLX offers a high chance of bone connection success rate that will increase the chance of immediate restoration and life-time of happiness and comfort. Straumann BLX offers a wide variety of treatment plans. The need of the patient can be found and a plan can be created that will be the best option for the patient. The choice of the treatment type will be up to the dentist’s preference and with the ability to choose from variety of different option will be much more comfortable and healthy for the patient.
Digital Dentistry Compatible Products
Straumann has been evolving dentistry and developing new systems that will help the patients’ comfort level during the procedure and helping dentists with the ease of use of equipment from Straumann. They have their open archive for all of their products that will help with the procedure of implants and restorative work.
All of their products are focused to increase the success rate of the implants. Digital Dentistry does not take any risks. With every step, the dentist is making the necessary calculations from the X-Ray and CT Scan of the patient for the implant(s). Straumann has their own Digital Scan equipment that will help with the production of the crown and angle of the implants’ abutment pieces. Along with digital scan, they make their own instruments that will prepare the jaw of the patient for the implant(s).
There are many clinics in Turkey but there are few clinics who are authorised and certificated by Straumann. Dentafly Dental Implant and Smile Studio have been working with Straumann for many years. Their implant surgeons are specifically selected to have worked with Straumann dental implants and they are joining meetings and seminars of Straumann. The implant surgeons have been educated by Straumann to use the implants to maximise the implants potential.
