Anterior restoration using angulated screw channel abutments
“This new solution gives both the restorative dentist and the dental technician more options. Greater flexibility helps ensure the best possible treatment outcome. Thanks to the free placement of the screw axis, the esthetic properties (such as translucency) of the ceramics can be optimized, while preserving the advantages of the screw-retained solution."

Initial clinical situation
Fractured maxillary right central incisor. Tooth is hopeless and extraction is planned (left).
X-ray taken before surgery and 3D cross section show insufficient periapical bone (center, right).
Treatment planning and surgical procedure
Clinical situation four months after bone and connective tissue grafting. A meta-resin Maryland bridge was used during the healing period.
Implant planning with NobelClinician® (right).
Four months after NobelClinician® RP 15 mm implant placement and Immediate Function with provisional crown (left).
With anatomical impression taking, soft-tissue contour information is transferred to the dental cast to create a final restoration with an optimal emergence profile.
With the NobelProcera® ASC (angulated screw channel) Abutment, the screw access hole can be located on the palatal surface.
Final screw-retained restoration. The NobelProcera® ASC concept is completely cement-free, thanks to a mechanically retained adapter.
