Straumann extends its guarantee for all metal abutments to lifelong, and to 10 years for Novaloc® abutments


Straumann users know: for every restoration with original Straumann components, they can rely on quality and outstanding precision, benefiting from Straumann’s proven quality. The Straumann Guarantee has now been extended to a lifelong warranty for metal abutments, and to 10 years for Straumann® Novaloc® abutments. This means that every abutment is replaced with an equivalent abutment in case of a failure.* (effective from 1 September 2016)

Outstanding clinical success record
The perfect match of Straumann implants and abutments results in excellent clinical performance. The outstanding clinical success record of our prosthetic components has been verified by different studies [1,2,3,4]. This reliability and peace of mind is reflected in the Straumann Guarantee which warrants that any Straumann product that is defective as a result of a failure of the material strength and stability during the guarantee period, will be replaced with the same or equivalent product, provided that only original Straumann products have been used.

Straumann® Novaloc®: innovation and reliability
For our newly introduced Straumann® Novaloc® Retentive System for hybrid dentures, a warranty of 10 years is provided. Our new ADLC-based surface with diamond-like properties is abrasion-resistant and provides an extremely long product life. This outstanding material, already tried out in other areas of medicine (e.g. hip and knee replacements), in combination with the unique original Straumann connection and our many years of know-how in implantology, have prompted us to also grant an extended guarantee for this product.

A 10-year retrospective study [4] by the University of Bern, Switzerland, on Straumann original prosthetic components shows an excellent long-term clinical performance:
