Nobel Biocare

Nobel Biocare’s new implant, NobelParallel™ Conical Connection, combines best-in-class features from the successful Brånemark and NobelSpeedy Groovy parallel-walled implant systems with an advanced internal connection. It marks the latest breakthrough in Nobel Biocare’s long-standing pursuit of innovation that benefits both patients and clinicians.

Stability and Flexibility in Parallel

NobelParallel Conical Connection offers extraordinary flexibility. It is designed for universal use in all bone qualities and has a wide range of indications. With implant sizes ranging from a 3.75-mm narrow platform variant to a 5.5-mm wide platform option, NobelParallel Conical Connection can be used in both the anterior and posterior.

Whether used at the back or the front of the mouth, all clinicians will appreciate its straightforward surgical protocol. It offers flexibility and shortens treatment time.

Straight to Stability

The surgical protocol and implant design form a unique combination intended to enable Immediate Function in cases where it might otherwise be impossible. The thread design and tapered apex of the implant help to ensure primary stability by allowing both underpreparation of the surgical site and bicortical anchorage.1,2

Osseointegration during the initial healing phase is enhanced by Nobel Biocare’s unique TiUnite surface.3 In addition, patented grooves encourage new bone formation for a predictable end result.4

A Strong Connection

This evolution of the original implant design achieves its full potential when used with original Nobel Biocare components. Like all Nobel Biocare implants, NobelParallel Conical Connection is designed to achieve predictable and safe results when used with Nobel Biocare restorative solutions.

The implant has an internal conical connection with hexagonal interlocking for high mechanical strength. This advanced connection also opens the door to a wide range of innovative restorative options. These include the NobelProcera® ASC (angulated screw channel) Abutment for easier access and increased esthetic possibilities and the NobelProcera® FCZ (full-contour zirconia) Implant Crown, which possesses the strength required to deal with high occlusal forces in the posterior. Among others, these cement-free solutions mean NobelParallel Conical Connection can achieve optimized results without any of the risks associated with excess cement.

In short, when a clinician is looking for one implant range to cover their requirements, they need look no further than NobelParallel Conical Connection.
