New opportunities ahead!

By Jim Mack

New Products

Nobel Biocare is bringing innovation back - to the back of the mouth, that is - by shining a helpful light on challenges like large extraction sockets, limited accessibility, tough-to-remove excess cement, and high occlusal forces.

With molar replacement among the most common indications, Nobel Biocare’s new complete posterior solution is the answer. Challenges are overcome efficiently and predictably using new wide-platform implants and restorative options, all specially designed for molar sites.

Fifty years of experience

Multiple innovations combine to make this solution complete. The new implants and related components are the product of unmatched experience and a scientific heritage that stretches back to 1965. Nobel Biocare’s new posterior solution provides several options, each engineered specifically for the posterior.

A wide range

The first implant option is a new NobelActive platform with a wider diameter implant body (Ø5.5 mm) to better fit the large extraction sites in the molar region and a wider platform for an optimized emergence profile. It’s also available in the shorter 7 mm length to avoid critical anatomy such as nerves.

One can also opt for the new NobelParallel Conical Connection which can be used in all bone qualities and a range of indications. It also comes in a Ø5.5 mm version for molar sites.

More to restore

New PEEK (polyetheretherketone) healing and temporary abutments are anatomically shaped with molar contours. And for the final restoration, the screw-retained and cement-free NobelProcera FCZ (full-contour zirconia) Implant Crown is designed for strength and predictability.

Chipping is not a concern, as the full-contour nature of the new implant crown removes the need for veneering (see previous page). It’s also available with an angulated screw channel (ASC) for easy access in the posterior.
