SLActive implants show higher stability
by Daniel Zimmermann, DTI

Singapore/LEIPZIG, Germany: In a new study presented by researchers at the 25th Anniversary Meeting of the Academy of Osseointegration in Orlando, USA, implants with SLActive surface technology from Straumann have shown higher stability compared to five other commonly used implants. The study, which was conducted on rabbit bone, was assessing the implant stability by removal torque evaluation after 3 and 6 weeks. It found significant differences between SLActive and all control implants.

A histological evaluation of the bone healing is currently ongoing, the researchers said.

Straumann’s SLActive, launched in 2005, is an innovative, dental implant surface technology, which has clinically proven to cut healing times in half to just three to four weeks. The technology is said to minimise the stability dip in the critical early stage of healing and increases implant stability. The implications of this are shorter treatment protocols, higher predictability and reduced risk with earlier loading, resulting in better patient care and satisfaction, the company said. SLActive could open the door to successful implant treatment in patients with poor bone quality or other challenging treatment situations such as patients with diabetes, osteoporosis, or patients who are smoking.

SLActive implants are currently available in all major markets in Europe, Asia and the US.
