Together with leading clinicians worldwide, Straumann has studied the clinical performance of SLActive® implants under challenging treatment protocols to demonstrate the outstanding healing capacity of the SLActive® surface.
As new insights emerge and new data becomes available, discover how you can benefit from the truly phenomenal performance of SLActive® to maximize your patients’ healing capabilities.
Immediate loading allows the clinician to place a prosthetic restoration on the same day as the implant. However, this demanding protocol carries a higher risk of failure due to premature loading of a healing implant.
Increasing patient expectations continue to drive demand for faster and more efficient treatment protocols. Immediate loading allows the clinician to place a prosthetic restoration on the same day as the implant. This approach allows the patient to benefit from the restoration immediately. However, this demanding protocol carries a higher risk of failure due to premature loading of a healing implant.
