We developed the exact dimensions, tolerances and materials of Straumann implants and their corresponding prosthetic components. No other company has access to Straumann’s precise design and engineering specifications, and cannot optimally recreate the harmonized Straumann implant-abutment connection.
1. Minimize peak stresses with conical screw head
2. Precise guidance at assembly with radial contact surfaces (screw and abutment)
3. Sealed connection due to conical implant-abutment interface
4. Stability from the deep implant-abutment engagement
If you look at the cross section of the Straumann CrossFit Connection versus the compatible components, there’s much more contact within the Straumann implant than the compatible components.
Recent publications highlight the importance of using original Straumann prosthetics.
The abutments were connected to the implants at 35 Ncm before loading. The original Straumann connection shows the highest removal torque* after cyclic loading reflecting the smallest effect of screw loosening.
* Results for Straumann abutments on Straumann implants are statistically different from those with non-original parts.
The original Straumann connection shows the smallest rotational misfit.*
* All pairwise comparisons are statistically significantly different (p < .05)
A variety of tools are available to identify Straumann original components.

"There are many studies out there to show if they would use compatible components that are not authentic, it could lead to problems such as screw loosening, micromovement, microgaps, bacterial contamination, which could ultimately lead to bone loss, abutment failure or implant failure."
