A complete posterior solution

Bringing innovation back

Why a complete solution for the posterior?

Though a common indication, the replacement of single-unit molars can be challenging. Now you can shorten your patients' time-to-teeth while reducing complexity and risks. Explore multiple new innovations that not only stand out on their own, but stand even stronger together.

What is the complete posterior solution?

Implants engineered for Immediate Function

Achieve immediate implant placement and Immediate Function with NobelActive or the new NobelParallel Conical Connection wide platform implants. The unique combination of implant design, proven TiUnite surface and surgical protocol help to ensure high primary stability and maintain it during the healing phase, even in soft bone situations.1-6

Wide platform to build an optimized emergence profile

The wide platform of 5.5 mm provides the solid base you need to create an optimized molar emergence profile for the temporary and final restoration.

Temporary solution shaped by reality

The PEEK healing and temporary abutments are anatomically shaped to match the contours of the molars. Fewer shape adjustments are needed, so you can achieve an optimized emergence profile in less time.

A completely cement-free implant crown

Eliminate the risk of excess cement7-8 with the NobelProcera screw-retained implant crown. Even the adapter is mechanically retained.

Since the implant crown is CAD/CAM manufactured from monolithic zirconia, the risk of chipping is almost entirely eliminated.9 It combines remarkable strength and workflow efficiency.

Easy restorative access with the angulated screw channel

Gain easy access to the restoration when vertical space is limited while enabling an optimized occlusal function. With the Angulated Screw Channel (ASC) Abutment you have the option to angulate the screw channel up to 25° in any direction. Learn more

Full contour in eight shades

The entire material is the same color throughout the crown. This means the crown will always maintain its shade - even when adjusted. 

Tooling with an incredible grip

Work efficiently and with more control using the Omnigrip Screwdriver. Its unique connection ensures incredible grip on the screw and a pick-up function that has to be seen to be believed.


Single tooth replacement in the posterior

Situation: Cracked tooth syndrome on upper-right first molar

Solution: Extraction with delayed implant placement (three months) using NobelActive WP 5.5 x 8.5 mm. As restorative solution a NobelProcera FCZ (full-contour zirconia) Implant Crown with angulated screw channel was chosen.

This case video takes you through every step of the treatment workflow for the immediate replacement of upper left and right molars: patient briefing, implant surgery using NobelActive WP implants, shaping of the emergence profile using PEEK healing abutments, lab preparation of the NobelProcera FCZ Implant Crown, and placement of final restoration.

User experiences

In the hands of experts

Short interviews with some of the first users of the posterior solution. Dr. Edward Marcus (USA), Dr. Tristan Staas (The Netherlands), Dr. Ken Parrish (USA), and Michiel Wouters (The Netherlands) share their first impressions of the new posterior solution from various perspectives.

Dr. Léon Pariente, France

"With Nobel Biocare’s new wide-platform implants, the platform shifting effect is enhanced. Obtaining an optimized emergence profile that supports healthy soft tissue has never been more straightforward. Combining wide platform implants and the NobelProcera FCZ Implant Crown gives us the level of precision we need in our daily practice."

Dr. Léon Pariente, Private Practice, Paris, France
