Implant Innovations, Inc. (3i) introduces its Certain® PREVAIL™ implant, designed to increase the potential for more predictable crestal bone preservation. The implant’s Integrated Platform Switching potentially enhances crestal bone preservation. The prosthetic table also is appropriately color-coded to ensure a proper match with existing Certain abutments. Other significant features include an industry-proven OSSEOTITE® coating, and the Certain QuickSeat™ connection, which provides an audible and tactile “click” confirming proper seating. The double hex allows as many as 12 rotational positions making it ideal for angled abutments.

Nobel Biocare has released NobelGuide, the only complete guided dental implant surgery solution that supports dentists from planning the case on CAD/CAM software to delivering the final prosthesis. It enables dentists to electronically plan the exact type, size, and implant location. With minimally invasive surgery guided by surgical templates, surgeons can accurately place the implants. Temporary or final prostheses can be fabricated in advance to deliver Immediate Function™. The result is a virtually pain-free procedure for the patient, as well as the ability to leave the office with beautiful teeth in the same visit. NobelGuide is a key component of Nobel Biocare’s Teeth in an Hour procedure.
