This randomized, single blind (investigator), active control, parallel assignment, efficacy study is currently recruiting approximately 24 participants. The principal investigator of the study is Nikos Donos, Prof. Dr. Eastman Dental Institute.

Straumann Bone level implant will be available in three diameters (3.3 mm, 4.1 mm, and 4.8 mm) and four lengths (8, 10, 12, and 14 mm) that will be suitable for all dental implant indications. There is a full matching prosthetic portfolio comprising 125 components, each of which is carefully designed for simplicity, reliability and esthetic performance. There is also a CAD or CAM custom abutment service in titanium and ceramic. With bone level designs the prosthetic connection is underneath the gum at, or close to, the crest of the jaw bone. The Straumann Bone Level Implant has been developed using a unique scientific concept called Bone Control Design to preserve bone and provide the foundation for long-term esthetic success. The implant have a cylindrical outer contour. The core is cylindrical in the apical region, becoming slightly conical in the coronal part of the implant leading to a mild taper. The implant features a thread to the top (identical thread as on Straumann Tapered Effect Implants) for extensive interlocking with the bone.
