COLOGNE, Germany: On Wednesday at IDS, the Straumann Group announced further investments and partnerships, and released a stream of new products.

The many new partnerships, investments and collaborations include the following: French implant manufacturer Anthogyr, a provider of innovative implant and CAD/CAM solutions; German partner MEDENTiKA, which now offers high-quality prostheses for value implant brands; Korean company Medit, a global provider of digital dentistry solutions; and ClearCorrect, a developer and producer of high-quality, easy-to-use clear aligners.

In the world of implants, Straumann released a fully tapered implant system, BLX. It is designed for immediate placement and is suitable for all treatment protocols. It optimises primary stability in all bone classes and simplifies restorative workflows. Together with BLX, an innovative drilling concept called Straumann VeloDrill has been launched—its main advantages being reduced heat generation, high drilling stability and time-savings.

The new, highly aesthetic Straumann SNOW ceramic implant, developed by its partner Z-Systems, is now available and offers the widest range of ceramic implant options, supported by digital workflows and biomaterial solutions.

Planned for release in 2020 is a premium zygomatic implant system for patients with severe maxillary atrophy, and training and education for dentists will be offered, according to Straumann.

New scanners include the Virtuo Vivo and a co-branded version of the latest 3Shape TRIOS 4 intra-oral scanner with fluorescent technology to identify surface caries and zero-radiation infrared scanning to detect interproximal caries. Straumann also plans to enter the preventative market.

All of the above products are on display at the Straumann Group exhibition stand at IDS in Hall 4.2, Booth G080–K089 and at the Virtual Clinic truck parked nearby where demonstrations of its suite of digital solutions can be viewed. Further details are available at
