The CeramTec Group has taken the next step in the transformation into a medical technology corporation and acquired the Swiss specialist for ceramic dental implants, Dentalpoint AG. With this acquisition, the globally leading medical technology group further expands its offering as a supplier in the field of high-performance ceramics. The CeramTec Group's high-quality, biocompatible ceramic components for joint and dental implants help patients worldwide to improve their lives.
With the acquisition of the Swiss company Dentalpoint AG ("Dentalpoint") on 4 January 2021, CeramTec is investing in the rapidly growing future market for metal-free dental prostheses and is sustainably expanding its portfolio for medical technology applications.

The transaction will create a leading global provider of solutions in the field of ceramic dental implants, which combine the highest product quality in terms of biocompatibility and aesthetics.
