Nobel Biocare launches complete, cement-free posterior solution at IDS 2015

Solution includes choice of two new wide-platform implants engineered for the posterior region; a new cement-free, full-contour implant crown with angulated screw channel for restoring molar teeth; and the new NobelParallel Conical Connection (CC) parallel-walled implant system.

At the 2015 International Dental Show (IDS) this week, Nobel Biocare is unveiling a new complete, cement-free treatment concept developed to address the most common challenges faced during the restoration of molar teeth. The solution features a choice of new wide-platform implants and restorative options designed specifically for the posterior region. Also being launched at IDS is an entire new parallel-walled implant system, NobelParallel Conical Connection (CC).

Visitors to Nobel Biocare’s booth at IDS can experience the new posterior solution using virtual reality technology.

Choice of two new wide-platform implants engineered for the posterior region
Nobel Biocare’s new complete posterior solution incorporates new Ø 5.5-mm, wide-platform implant options. Clinicians can choose from the NobelParallel CC WP and new NobelActive WP, both designed for emergence profiles for large molar crowns. Each is intended to shorten time-to-teeth by enabling immediate function whenever possible. With the new WP option, both NobelActive and NobelParallel CC are now available in a shorter 7-mm length to avoid anatomical structures such as nerves.

New cement-free, full-contour implant crown with angulated screw channel for restoring molar teeth
The new NobelProcera full-contour zirconia (FCZ) Implant Crown is the key restorative component in the new complete posterior solution. Screw-retained, made in monolithic zirconia, and with the option to angulate the screw channel, it is designed to offer both strength and restorative flexibility.

As a completely cement-free solution with a mechanically-retained titanium adapter, the FCZ Implant Crown avoids the risks associated with cement excess. Its strength ensures predictability, even under the high occlusal forces of the posterior, which makes it ideal for use in the molar region. No veneering is required, so it also eliminates the risk of veneer chipping. Improved access with an angulated screw channel, combined with the pick-up function offered by the Omnigrip tooling, makes it easier to restore in the posterior region. The FCZ Implant Crown comes in eight shades, with each color applied throughout the material.

Furthermore, Nobel Biocare has also launched new PEEK Healing and PEEK Temporary Abutments that are anatomically shaped to match the molar contours. As the PEEK abutments come ready-shaped for an optimized emergence profile, fewer adjustments are needed. This can simplify treatment and reduce costly chair time.

NobelParallel Conical Connection (CC) parallel-walled implants
The new NobelParallel CC benefits from 50 years of research at Nobel Biocare and represents an evolution of the Brånemark and NobelSpeedy implant systems. NobelParallel CC combines a parallel-walled implant body with an internal conical connection and offers flexibility. It is engineered for use in all bone qualities and for a broad range of indications. (The wide-platform version is part of Nobel Biocare’s new complete posterior solution.)

“This year we are marking 50 years since the late Per-Ingvar Brånemark placed the very first titanium dental implants. Nobel Biocare is proud to continue playing an important role in developing original treatment concepts to help restore quality of life for millions of patients. The innovations featured in our new complete posterior solution build on our heritage by further helping dental professionals to treat more patients better,” said Richard Laube, Nobel Biocare CEO.
