"The CrossFit Connection of the Straumann Bone Level Implant cannot be precisely reproduced by other manufacturers.  I want the best for my customers and our patients. That’s why I use Straumann.“  – Mark Peters, Peters Dental Ceramic Studio Ltd. Toronto, Canada

Genuine versus "Compatible Components": One of these things is NOT like the other

'look-alike' implant and abutment systems attempt to copy the original manufacturer’s design, but cannot give assurance of equal precision or material quality. Compromises, such as a poor connection between the implant and abutment, can lead to complications. That’s why practitioners should insist on restoring with genuine Straumann components.

Now let’s take a look at a genuine Straumann bone level implant-abutment connection and show you why it’s so important for you and your patients that you stick with Straumann on Straumann throughout the treatment process.
