NobelProcera™ Scanner

A unique system that currently provides 18 custom-milled solutions for dental restorations in a variety of high-quality material choices.

The cornerstone to the NobelProcera system is the new conoscopic scanner, a unique and patented proprietary technology used for ultra precise and efficient data capture. Conoscopic holography is superior to other optical scanner techniques, such as triangulation, because the projected and reflected beams travel the same linear pathway to and from the scanned object. Steep slopes up to 85˚ can be measured with its co-linear scanning, as opposed to the limited capability of triangulation scanners, which ranges from 42˚ to 60˚.

The NobelProcera Scanner can digitalize convex (positive) and concave (negative) geometries that the laser beam is capable of “seeing” with coverage of up to 240˚ (180˚ + 60˚). This means complete and accurate scanning of everyday model work in the laboratory can be accomplished efficiently. In addition, this technology enables technicians to scan a very wide range of materials without the use of a contrast spray.

The laser beam is capable of “seeing” with coverage of up to 240˚ (180˚ + 60˚ undercuts).

The NobelProcera system has the accuracy to meet the laboratory’s needs for all of its CAD/CAM cases. These NobelProcera solutions range from tooth-born crowns in IPS e.max lithium disilicate; copings and bridge frameworks in high-strength ceramics (alumina or shaded zirconia), titanium, or cobalt chrome; to implant-born restorations, such as abutments in shaded zirconia or titanium; and milled titanium overdenture bars and superstructures to Telio CAD provisional crowns and bridges. With this system, precision-milled titanium implant bars that are compatible with more than 175 implant platforms can become routine offerings in the laboratory.

Each restoration that is produced in the Mahwah, New Jersey production center is manufactured under strict adherence to the medical devise ISO 13485 standard and independently checked to ensure it meets precise specifications before it is sent to the laboratory. This Precision Milled Restoration (PMR) process ensures that the CAD/CAM cases in the laboratory flow smoothly through the production process every day.

NobelProcera’s open-air design does not require a cowling to limit ambient light, which greatly improves the scanner’s user-friendliness for inserting or manipulating models and dies. This feature is possible because Nobel Biocare’s conoscopic technology has more measurement stability and is less susceptible to external light than other dental scanners.

The NobelProcera system is a comprehensive package that includes the scanner, the CAD software, the connection to the unique NobelProcera manufacturing process, and in-depth customer training and support. Together, they encompass the safety, science, and service for which Nobel Biocare is known. Incorporating this package in the laboratory allows dental technicians to do what they do best—design and finish dental restorations, without worrying about the costs or concerns of in-house milling.
