BASEL, Switzerland: The Straumann Group, a global leader in tooth replacement, and Zirkonzahn USA, one of the world’s leading suppliers of CAD/CAM-based solutions for prosthodontics, recently announced that they have signed an agreement to work together in the US and Canada. The cooperation will include co-development and -marketing activities, coupled with joint symposia in the US for dental clinicians and technicians.

There are more than 34 million Americans who are edentulous in at least one arch, according to the American College of Prosthodontists. While more than 50 per cent can afford treatment, the actual treatment rate is still very low—but growing. The aim of the collaboration is to promote a seamless digital workflow that seeks to maximise patient satisfaction and treatment availability for a broader section of the population.

“We are delighted to collaborate with Zirkonzahn in North America to create further growth opportunities in the CAD/CAM prosthetic segment, supporting our strategic goal of delivering end-to-end digital solutions for full-arch tooth replacement,” said Marco Gadola, CEO of the Straumann Group.

“By adding our expertise to the collaboration, we will provide leading-edge technology to American and Canadian customers, enabling them to offer the best possible solutions for patients,” stated Alessandro Cucchiaro, CEO of Zirkonzahn.
