Replace Select TC: Versatile and easy-to-use implant supported overdenture

New Products

Backed by more than 40 years of successfully treating edentulous patients, Nobel Biocare introduces another versatile product for implant-supported overdenture solutions.


Replace Select TC1 is a two-piece implant with a 3mm high, extended mach-ined collar which enables platform access at tissue level (Figure 1). Simultaneously, its colour-coded internal tri-channel connection facilitates accurate and quick component identification and placement.

Moreover, the body of Replace Select TC is derived from Branemark System MK III implants, making it well-suited for all bone types and one-stage treatment protocols, with excellent clinical results. In a retrospective study with an average three year follow-up, Replace implants with 3mm collars demonstrated a cumulative survival rate of 99.2%.2

To facilitate immediate temporization using existing dentures, a new healing screw was developed for Replace Select TC - designed to prevent soft tissue overgrowth (Figure 2). Two different screws are available to accommodate soft tissue thickness and facilitate intraoperative flexibility: 1mm and 3mm height variants. Final prosthetics can be attached to Replace Select TC using any Nobel Biocare overdenture solution: Locator Abutment, Ball Abutment, Gold Abutment Bar/Gold Coping Bar and NobelProcera Implant Bar Overdenture.

By using Replace Select TC, treatment times can be reduced, which may lead to increased patient satisfaction. Replace Select TC should be considered the overdenture solution implant of choice for both surgical and prosthetic management options.

1. TC = Tissue Collar.

2. Two clinics placed 132 Replace Select Straight implants with 3 mm machined collar in 48 edentulous patients using one-stage surgery, loaded after 9 to 12 weeks with an overdenture solution (preliminary data from external study 2010-938).
