NobelPearl™

Unique metal-free, two-piece ceramic dental implant solution

A SOFT-TISSUE FRIENDLY IMPLANT SOLUTION

NobelPearl is a 100% metal-free, two-piece ceramic implant solution with a cement-free internal connection, providing a unique new alternative to titanium. Designed to support a natural soft-tissue appearance, NobelPearl implants can help patients gain the natural esthetic excellence they desire.

BENEFIT FROM

Natural esthetics

NobelPearl is designed to support a natural soft-tissue appearance. Its white material is especially beneficial in patients with a thin gingival biotype.1

Soft-tissue attachment

Designed for excellent soft-tissue attachment and low inflammatory response.2

Natural harmony with soft tissue

Zirconia may promote microcirculatory dynamics in peri-implant mucosa that are comparable to those around natural teeth.3

Low plaque

Zirconia has demonstrated low plaque affinity.2,4,5

EXPERIENCE PEACE OF MIND


NobelPearl provides proven strength for a successful start in ceramic implantology and offers greater restorative flexibility compared with one-piece or cemented ceramic implants. This is thanks to the two-piece, reversible, cement-free internal connection design. NobelPearl is engineered for primary stability and available for a broad range of indications, from single to multiple unit.

ENABLED BY

High performance metal-free screw

The innovative metal-free VICARBO® screw is made of carbon fiber-reinforced polymer and designed for a strong ceramic-to-ceramic connection.

Proven surface

The hydrophilic sand-blasted and acid-etched ZERAFIL™ surface, combined with a partially machined collar, is proven to osseointegrate.6,7

Precision manufacturing

NobelPearl implants and abutments are milled from hot isostatic-pressed (HIP) zirconia (ATZ*) blanks, which are proven to be strong. No thermal process (sintering) or finishing takes place after the final shaping of the external and internal implant geometry.

This manufacturing method enables a high level of dimensional precision and accuracy.

Prosthetic-driven implant placement

Plan your treatment with NobelClinician Software and perform guided implant surgery with NobelGuide pilot drilling. Additionally, you can offer patients the NobelPearl Ceramic Base CAD/CAM solution using DTX StudioTM design software.

AN EVOLUTION OF CERAMIC IMPLANTS

Discover the unique inter-X connection

The Inter-X internal connection is specifically designed for ceramic implants. While the ceramic absorbs compressive forces, the VICARBO® screw made of carbon fiber-reinforced PEEK withstands tensile forces thanks to its continuous longitudinal carbon fibers.

The abutment’s simple placement and secure seating is enabled by the connection’s high-precision geometry.

The slightly beveled contact surface of the implant platform is designed to facilitate the centering of the prosthetic components while the four interlocks prevent abutment rotation within the implant.
