Brånemark System – the original

The most scientifically documented implant system in the world

Clinical success since 1965

The Brånemark System was invented by Prof. Dr. Per-Ingvar Brånemark.

Brånemark System is synonymous with the revolutionary concept of osseointegration, which introduced safe and effective implant treatments to modern dentistry. Brånemark System implants have been in clinical use since 1965. It's the most scientifically documented implant system in the world.1

Why Brånemark System?

Benefit from exceptional versatility

Brånemark System offers solutions for an unrivaled choice of treatment options. Implants are available from 7–52.5 mm (Brånemark System Zygoma) in length and with narrow to wide platforms. Choose the best possible solution for you from our complete prosthetic assortment.

Brånemark System Mk III

Brånemark System Mk III is intended for medium to hard bone. Its implant design is based on the original Brånemark System with parallel walls and three cutting chambers. The implant is designed to achieve optimal implant stability in all bone qualities.

Brånemark System Mk IV

With its slightly tapered body, Brånemark System Mk IV is designed to maximize initial stability in soft bone. The shallow cutting edges on its threads are specifically designed for soft bone indications.

Brånemark System Shorty

Brånemark System Shorty measures just 5.5 mm in the bone and allows for graftless procedures even in cases with advanced tissue resorption. It's available either with machined or TiUnite collar.

Brånemark System Zygoma

Brånemark System Zygoma is the most documented Zygoma implant solution on the market for the severely resorbed maxilla when bone grafting is not an option.1 The implants range from 30–52.5 mm in length and are available either with machined or TiUnite surface.

The original connection for thin marginal soft tissue

The external hex connection is the original connection developed by Professor P-I Brånemark. It offers unmatched prosthetic versatility with a choice of six to twelve abutment positions and a short crown-to-first-thread distance. This is ideal for use with thin marginal soft tissue.

Also available with internal tri-channel connection

Do you like the Brånemark System implant body but prefer using an internal tri-channel connection? Try Replace Select Straight and NobelReplace Straight in medium to dense bone.

Experience enhanced osseointegration

The Brånemark System features Nobel Biocare’s unique oxidized TiUnite surface with grooves (Groovy). This maintains high stability during healing through faster bone formation and ensures long-term success.
