Recently, Straumann announced that it had extended the lifetime guarantee on all its Roxolid implants (Roxolid „, is an alloy of titanium and zirconium) to include a monetary contribution to the follow-up treatment costs in the case of implant fracture, in Europe and North America (with other regions to follow depending on legal and organizational constraints).
According to Straumann:
Until now, the treatment costs for replacing an implant in the event of breakage had to be carried by the dentist and/or the patient. Straumann is the first leading dental implant manufacturer to offer a lifetime warranty covering the product and a contribution to the treatment costs.
Straumann’s treatment cost guarantee (called their “Lifetime Plus guarantee”) is available for Roxolid implants only (standard guarantee is for all implants), and reflects Straumann’s growing confidence in the Roxolid material, based on recent studies 1. However, we wonder if Straumann’s extended guarantee to the follow-up treatment costs in the case of implant fracture will start a trend with other implant manufacturers, even those using the more classic materials?
