With a slate of products and services geared toward aesthetic dentistry, Straumann Group and its brands are enabling dentists and patients around the world to achieve valued results using the latest in dental treatment for the Asia-Pacific region.
Headquartered in Basel, Switzerland, the Straumann Group and its brands – including Straumann, Neodent, ClearCorrect, Dental Wings and other fully- or partly-owned companies and partners – are committed to delivering excellence, innovation and quality in replacement, corrective and digital dentistry.
With more than 9,000 employees worldwide, the group develops, manufactures and supplies dental implants, instruments, biomaterials, CAD/CAM prosthetics, digital equipment, software, and clear aligners for applications in replacement, restorative, orthodontic and preventive dentistry.
Vida Lau, commercial director of South East Asia at Straumann, told Dental Asia: “Straumann Group offers Neodent and Straumann implant solutions as well as ClearCorrect aligners which are comfortable, removable, nearly invisible, and, best of all, they work without impacting your daily life.
“Straumann delivers innovative systems that are connected to digital solutions, services, equipment with partners and third parties providing digital solutions such as scanners and workflows for dentists that will optimise treatment outcomes for patients. Partnering with the largest global scientific network we create a leading ecosystem for aesthetic dentistry within the world, and we are considered by many clinicians in providing dental implants to be the standard of care for replacing missing teeth.”
Available in Malaysia since 2004 through its suppliers and stakeholders, Straumann’s products and services achieved prominence in its home country and the countries they operate in. Being one of the world’s top distributors has enhanced the company’s exposure within the market, giving them an edge in terms of speed and efficiency, he added. “We are proud to offer up-to-date technology as part of our service. Our partners can expect modern care and treatment in all your procedures with our dental technology.”
Going digital with dentistry
Digital innovation has been reshaping administrative and clinical processes for several years now, according to Lau, on top of generational changes that also reflect a changing consumer attitude towards implants. He elaborated: “Several fundamental and reinforcing trends drive deep structural changes, and as we move along in embracing advanced digital solutions, it is now more than ever to remain resilient to stay ahead of the competition. Instantaneously, technological advancements, low-cost alternatives, a lack of qualified personnel, changing patient preferences and dental school curricula, as well as new treatment standards are further accelerating the adoption of digital solutions.”
These advanced solutions, he added, will eventually cover the entire dental workflow, delivering quantifiable benefits for dentists, technicians and patients.
“Ultimately, clinics that excel at digitalisation will gain considerable advantages in terms of outcome quality, as well as cost and time savings,” Lau said. “With that, Straumann Group has been one of the partners of choice that is preferred by suppliers, stakeholders and patients in the aesthetic dentistry in Malaysia since 2004.”
