StraumannProArch,acomprehensivecombination The Bone Level Tapered Implant is an important component in Straumann’s Pro Arch solution, which was first exhibited at this year’s IDS. Pro Arch is a com- prehensive combination of implants, abutments, CAD/ CAM frameworks, auxiliary components and educa- tionalsupportthatenablecliniciansanddentallabora- tories to provide accelerated fixed full-arch rehabilita- tion. This approach reduces the number of treatment sessions and thus minimizes disruption to patients’ dailylives.Mostimportantly,itoffersfixedfull-archre- placements rather than removable dentures, which manypatientsviewasartificialandinconvenient. The Pro Arch solution includes a selection of sleek new abutments and auxiliary components that offer a wide range of prosthetic options for screw-retained restorations.
