Dental Economics-Dental News - Straumann launches Roxolid
Roxolid (Rock solid) is a new alloy of Titanium and zirconium developed by Straumann that promises narrower and stronger implants with better osseointegration. Implants in 3.3 diameter are already available for use in the USA. The possibility of using narrow diameter implants in high stress sites opens up exciting possibilities and has the potential for reducing the need for many augmentation procedures. This should increase the appeal of dental implants to patients and also induce a greater number of clinicians to begin placing implants.
