Another legend is born; the Straumann® Bone Level Tapered Ø 2.9mm implant

Small, strong and enduring, and completing the Straumann portfolio for narrow space indications, the Ø 2.9mm implant brings all the Bone Level Tapered (BLT) advantages to narrow interdental spaces.


The Straumann Bone Level Tapered (BLT) Ø 2.9mm implant is the implant solution for narrow interdental spaces or ridges. The smallest in the Bone Level Tapered range, it completes the portfolio for narrow space indications and integrates seamlessly with the reliable Straumann® Dental Implant System.

Benefitting from the clinically-proven BLT design, it has a parallel body with full-depth thread and three cutting notches for self-cutting in underprepared sites. Its apically tapered design delivers excellent primary stability in soft bone and fresh extraction sockets as it adequately compresses the underprepared osteotomy and allows the clinician to effectively master the patient’s anatomy, even when limited, and protects the anatomical structure with its round tip.

As well as the tapered implant body, all Straumann BLT implants possess the powerful combination of Roxolid®, SLActive®, Bone Control Design™, CrossFit® connection and prosthetic diversity.


Roxolid has enabled Straumann to create smaller implants than ever before, thus reducing invasiveness, by preserving bone and minimising the amount of bone grafting required. Roxolid is a high performance alloy, specifically designed to offer higher strength than pure titanium, making these smaller implants possible. Smaller implants increase the range of treatment options available to the clinician and patient acceptance will be higher when less invasive treatment options are offered.


The SLActive surface allows fast and predictable osseointegration, enabling safer and faster treatment and higher treatment predictability in challenging protocols. Clinically proven to provide safer and faster treatment in 3-4 weeks for all indications, it increases safety during the early healing phase and leads to a superior structural and functional connection between the implant and vital bone.


Bone Control Design™ and CrossFit® connections

Bone Control Design optimises crestal bone preservation while the CrossFit connections simplify handling and increase confidence in component positioning, ensuring precision against rotation and long-term flexibility.


Prosthetic diversity is ensured by compatibility with the full range of Straumann prosthetic components, including the unique oval design for optimal soft tissue management in smaller spaces.


The BLT Ø 2.9mm implant is indicated for single-tooth restorations of the central and lateral incisors in the mandible, and lateral incisors in the maxilla.


And coming soon… single use instruments will allow you to place the BLT Ø 2.9mm implant with sterile, disposable burs, drills, taps and profilers, ensuring your instruments are always sharp and minimising the cost and inconvenience of sterilisation.
