Titanium is well established in medical and dental applications for its strength and lightweight properties. Ticon™ is an ideal option for patients who need crowns, bridges and restorations.

Straumann’s proprietary CAM processing eliminates the structural material flaws of alloys that are cast. Cast alloys could lead to issues with overall strength and integrity of the coping or framework.

Material properties of Ticon™:

  • Can be X-rayed
  • Conduct low levels of heat
  • Maintain a bioinert state toward acids and physiological solutions
  • Create an optimal bond between titanium and veneer ceramic

Straumann CADCAM Solutions deliver Straumann CADCAM Abutments in ZrO? or titanium when a stock abutment won't achieve the desired result. Unequaled precision and high-quality central milling deliver the esthetic results you'd expect from an industry leader like Straumann.

A variety of custom materials and our state-of-the-art central milling facility allow you to avoid the cost of stocking multiple abutments and components, help streamline your inventory and protects us from the fluctuating cost of gold with fixed pricing materials.

Abutment options are available for all Straumann implant platforms, offering treatment flexibility.
