Straumann has launched the BLX implant system in Poland. the event took place in The Westin Warsaw and was attended by around 300 oral & maxillofacial surgeons. Two main lectures were provided, one by Prof. Ophir Fromovich, the designer of the BLX who explained the concept of the new implant which was introduced as not only as an implant but also as a tool (final drill). The second lecture delivered by Dr kriss Chmielewski on the codiagnostix. after the lectures hands-on were available for the participants.
The Straumann BLX implant system is a solution for confidence beyond immediacy. It builds on the success of the company’s apically tapered Straumann BLT implant line, which continues to grow strongly and still offers significant potential. The new BLX addresses the fully tapered implant segment, which is the fastest-growing segment and now accounts for one in every four implants placed.
Straumann BLX has been designed for immediacy and it is also a potential solution for all other indications to suit the dentist’s preferred treatment protocol, ranging from immediate to conventional placement and loading. The intelligent implant concept allows for Straumann dynamic bone management and is designed for immediate protocols in all bone types.
Having already received very positive results and feedback, Straumann BLX combines an innovative design aiming for optimised stability with the high-performance Roxolid metal alloy and the SLActive surface. This creates an implant system that offers new levels of confidence—for immediacy and beyond.
The company has made significant inroads into the field of immediate implant treatment with its apically tapered BLT (Bone Level Tapered) implant, which was launched in 2015 and is now its best-selling implant. While BLT continues to grow strongly, it does not address the highly attractive fully-tapered implant segment, which is growing the fastest and now accounts for one in every four implants placed. To fill this gap in its portfolio, Straumann began working with the world’s leading experts in the field with the goal of developing the most advanced fully-tapered implant system. BLX is the result. Its innovative design, combined with Straumann’s proven Roxolid and SLActive ® technologies, creates a unique next-generation implant system that brings a new level of confidence – not just for immediacy, but for all indications. BLX is designed to optimize primary stability in all bone classes, to simplify restorative workflows and to achieve predictable outcomes – even in complex cases.
Straumann has been addressing the topic of immediacy in tooth replacement for many years as the company seeks to meet demand for even shorter treatment times coupled with predictable and personalized treatment options.
