Tapered Effect implant

The Straumann® Tapered Effect implant combines a cylindrical shape in its apical region and a conical shape in the coronal region. This special anatomical design makes this implant particularly suitable for immediate or early implantation following extraction or loss of natural teeth. With the smooth neck section of 1.8 mm, healing can occur trans- or subgingivally. The thread pitch of 0.8 mm is designed for excellent primary stability.1

The Tapered Effect Implant features the synOcta® connection and is used with the corresponding prosthetic components, the Straumann® synOcta portfolio and the Straumann® Solid Abutment.

Please note that the size limitations according to the instructions for use of each Straumann® product apply and must be observed. Each Straumann® product must be used in accordance with the instructions for use provided by Straumann. It is the practitioner’s responsibility to use the device in accordance with these instructions for use and to determine if the device fits the individual patient situation.

Our Soft Tissue Level Implants are also available as guided implants. The guided and standard implants are identical and use the same prosthetic components, but feature a different transfer piece.
