Prof. Alessandro Pozzi

Prof. Alessandro Pozzi, Italy

Let me tell you about my first feeling with the NobelReplace Conical Connection. I fully confirm that the conical connection is comfortable to use during both surgical and prosthetic procedures. It is a new implant concept that merges the well-proven implant body of the NobelReplace Tapered and a tight internal connection. NobelReplace Conical Connection is a versatile, easy-to-use implant, which performs well in soft and hard bone.

NobelReplace Platform Shift allows existing NobelReplace Tapered users to broaden their implant offering without having to abandon the familiar surgical protocol or the color-coded components that drop into place with the tri-channel connection. If crestal bone preservation and soft tissue volume are critical, this is my implant of choice.

Dr Eirik Salessen

Dr. Eirik Salvesen, Norway

An innovative implant system cannot be determined by one single feature. By combining the clinically well-proven implant body of the NobelReplace system with a tight conical connection, the possibility for enhanced pink esthetics is integrated into the implant design. The conical connection is designed to preserve the marginal bone by minimizing micro-movements and eventual micro-leakage. Additionally, the precisely fitting supra-structure makes the abutment connection a quick and predictable procedure. The goal is enhanced soft-tissue management as well as a healthy implant site to improve patient satisfaction with the final result.

Dr Mosk

Dr. Mosk, Netherlands

As a straight Nobel MK III addict user of many years, I was asked to try out the new Nobel Biocare implants NobelReplace Conical Connection as well as NobelReplace Platform Shift. I was surprised by the easy way of placing and very accurate drilling procedure using only a little number of drills. Even in extraction alveoli, the initial stability was very high and by the form the implant-bone gap appeared minimal. Having placed now 10 implants in this pre-launch program, I am convinced of the advantages of these new implants.

The precision of placement as well as the ease-of-use, which augments patient comfort, is a great advantage. In the esthetic zone it is a great advantage that the precise depth of placement as well as the direction can be observed and corrected before placing the implant itself.

In short: I strongly recommend the use of the implants, for which by the way further long- term investigation is to be done.

Sam Hanson

Dr. Sam Hanson

Using NobelReplace Conical Connection in my daily practice was a rewarding experience. This new implant combines the best of two worlds. The superior design of the body of the NobelReplace tapered implant body and the superior conical connection of the NobelActive implants. The ease of use of the NobelReplace implant body remains a major advantage and provides more opportunities for use than the more specific NobelActive implant body. The mere fact that we can use an implant system where the well-proven implant body of NobelReplace is combined with the best-in-class tight conical connection is an important step forward and provides added value in the day-to-day treatment of our patients.

Dr. Sillmanns

Dr. Hartmut Sillmanns, M.Sc. Germany

Implant systems are developed with a solution-focused philosophy in order to offer the best and most reliable results. NobelActive, for example, can serve in critical situations with compromised bone due to its active tip and high primary stability. For all other cases NobelReplace is a secure and reliable system, used worldwide. The NobelReplace Conical Connection is already known for its good primary stability and now offers, with the integrated platform shifting and back-taper, excellent options for soft tissue management. Nevertheless, practice organization and inventory is kept lean, because it shares the surgical kit with NobelReplace Tapered Groovy and the prosthetics with NobelActive.

Dr. Albert Vericat

Dr. Albert Vericat, Spain

After NobelActive came into the market, one of the requests I made to Nobel Biocare Spain was to combine the conical connection with the NobelReplace implant body. I consider the tapered NobelReplace to be the implant that offers the greatest advantages and the best results in immediate placement.

The new NobelReplace Conical Connection implant involves a change in the platform and a conical seal that minimizes micro-movements and the micro-gap, fostering an improved integration with soft tissue around implant restorations. I believe NobelReplace Conical Connection is the best choice for post-extraction immediate implant placement, because it allows, for example in the frontal area of the upper maxillary, an improved conservation of the osseous papillae and therefore the gingival papillae too. NobelReplace Conical Connection will undoubtedly help me to stick to one of my main principals namely not to lose what nature has given us.

Dr. Enric Pintado

Dr. Enric Pintado Boixadós, Spain

Personally I believe that NobelReplace Conical Connection offers several advantages, both from a surgical and prosthetic perspective. In implant surgery, the key is to be able to choose the most suitable implant for each situation. Now we have a NobelReplace with conical connection as an addition to the existing conical connection option with NobelActive.

Read more

Conical connection with built-in platform shifting maintains and sometimes improves the quantity of bone, and enables the thickness and the health of the soft tissue around implants and restorations. From a prosthetic point of view, the internal conical connection is esthetically highly versatile with 6 options for abutment positioning. The fact that the various implants unify the connection also helps us to reduce our stock of abutments. We also make the dental technician happy when he knows that he will work with the same connection and the same replicas, no matter if the implant is NobelReplace or NobelActive.

Dr. Gonzalez Valenzuela

Dr. José Luis González Valenzuela, Spain

Judging from the results 4 months after having placed these implants in clinical trials, I am very impressed. The platform shift solution shows a marked improvement on soft tissue response and the implant can also be used without having to change our methodology, drills and implant drivers, which is a welcome and stress-free innovation!

Dr. Luis Cuadrado De Vicente - Spain

Dr. Luis Cuadrado De Vicente, Spain

The new NobelReplace Conical Connection implant has been an extremely pleasant surprise to me. For me it is probably the ideal design, which brings together all features a dental implant should have nowadays. I sincerely believe that the NobelReplace Conical Connection can be of tremendous advantage when it comes to treating our patients.

An implant surgery should be simple, safe and it should be easy to achieve immediate function parameters without being an expert surgeon. The NobelReplace Conical Connection implant can maximize the available bone and soft-tissue volume due to its internal connection. For obtaining best esthetics, it is very valuable to have many restorative options ranging from prefabricated to customized solutions.

I am convinced that this implant will attract many clinicians because of the virtually non-existing learning curve and familiarity with existing NobelReplace and NobelActive users and because it offers a simple and safe surgery with optimal esthetic results.

Dr. Stefan Scherg

Mr. Stefan Scherg, Germany

Clinicians using the new NobelReplace Conical Connection implant for the first time will find that it feels safe and familiar. This is because NobelReplace Conical Connection shares various key features and benefits with both the NobelReplace Tapered and NobelActive implant systems.

Read more

NobelReplace Tapered users will recognize the easy-to-use drill protocol, since this stays unchanged. One difference to the NobelReplace Tapered we already know is the implant driver – this comes from NobelActive, but shouldn’t pose any difficulties since this is just as easy to use. Hence, for existing NobelReplace users the usual adaptation time to use the new implant is minimal.  

NobelActive users should also find it simple to learn to use NobelReplace Conical Connection. They will already know the abutment connection and prosthetic components, and the tapered drill protocol is intuitive and easy to use.

Although NobelReplace Conical Connection is a new implant system with an advanced internal conical connection, clinicians and practice staff won’t have to adjust their work processes significantly, which is a nice advantage of this new implant.
