Scan and design services

Why outsource implant bars?

New to implant bars?

Maximize your potential with the All-on-4® treatment concept. Thanks to our highly trained CAD/CAM operators, you can offer your customers optimally fitting implant bars without having to invest in bar design and production training or expensive equipment.

Too much work?

Don’t lose the case to your competition. We can do the work for you and you can still sell the final restoration. All you have to do is send us your case, approve our design suggestion and we'll send you the final implant bar.

Still soldering and welding?

Don’t risk the weaknesses that can creep in because of soldering or laser welding. Receive implant bars with superior passive fit and stability (compared to casted frameworks) without investing in expensive equipment.1,2,3,4 Simply send your model to us and we handle the scan, design and milling for you. If you prefer to do the design yourself just send us your wax-up along with the model.

Don't want to invest in scan bodies you rarely use?

No problem, with our CAD/CAM services you gain access to more than 170 implant platforms. Send us your model and we'll scan and design the implant bar for you. If you have a NobelProcera System, you can choose to design the bar yourself after we scanned your model.

Why work with NobelProcera CAD/CAM Services?

Receive exceptional quality when it's indispensable

Precision of fit is critical to the success and longevity of multi-unit implant restorations. A forced fit can cause the implant, screw or restoration to fracture or trigger biological complications like bone loss or bacteria penetration. Thanks to the accurate scan data and our engineering, material and production expertise, you don’t need to worry about fit.1,2

We’ll be there when you need help

Whether it's helping you with your first order or answering questions, our global team of clinical and technical experts will be there for you, so that you can get the most out of our CAD/CAM services.

Save time

All you need to do is prepare the master model and a diagnostic tooth set-up, fill in a simple order form and send us the case. We make sure your implant bars arrive ready to use with no need for manual adaptation.

Solutions for all your needs

NobelProcera Implant Bars can be used for fixed and fixed-removable solutions – both on implant and abutment level. We offer any combination for the more than 170 implant platforms we support.5 We also have a wide variety of bar types and attachments you can choose from.

No investment needed

Why worry about costly investments in production technology, equipment upgrades, stock levels and ongoing maintenance? We’ll handle that. And if you already have a NobelProcera System you can opt to do the designing in-house if you have enough capacity.

Get peace of mind with our extensive warranty

After more than 50 years in the industry, we believe in the quality of the implant bars and connections we engineer. That's why our warranty covers both the bar and the implant, including implants not from Nobel Biocare. You can be sure we’ll continue to support you into the future.

How it works

Delivery-times-overview-for-NobelProcera-Services.jpg

1) You place the order

Fabricate the master model with removable soft tissue and a wax try-in. Fill in the order form and send the case to us.

2) We scan (and design) the bar for you

After receiving your model, our highly trained technicians will scan and design the case according to your specifications within two working days. If you have a NobelProcera System and opt to do the design yourself, you'll receive the scan file within 24 hours.

3) You verify the design

Before we produce the bar, you can check the suggested design. If changes are needed, you can just send us your feedback and we'll redesign the case. Design adaptations are free of charge. This step isn't necessary if you send us your wax-up for copy-milling or if you do the design yourself in the NobelProcera Software.

4) We produce the bar for you

Once you approve the design we produce the bar with our state-of-the-art machines. The bar is then verified to guarantee passive fit on the provided model and polished (if applicable) so you receive it ready to use. We dispatch the case within three days after your approval.

5) You receive the case

We ship the bar to you together with your case materials, screws and attachments (if applicable) with express delivery. You can use the tracking tool to monitor when your bar is shipped and when it is set to arrive.
