PRODUCT INFORMATION BY THE MANUFACTURER

The Straumann® PURE Ceramic Implant is the result of more than 9 years of research and development. It has a natural looking ivory color, a feature that makes the implant look more like a natural tooth and supports the clinician in cases of thin gingiva biotype or soft tissue recession. Its monotype design is based on features of the Straumann® Soft Tissue Level Standard Plus and Straumann® Bone Level Implants. According to a survey (data on file), patients would prefer tooth-colored implants, if given the choice between ceramic and metal implants. With the Straumann® PURE Ceramic Implant, clinicians can offer their patients a natural and highly esthetic solution, benefitting from favorable soft tissue attachment around zirconia implants.
