Synergy of surfaces
Introducing Xeal and TiUltra – two innovative surfaces derived from our decades of applied anodization expertise. Nobel Biocare’s extensive expertise in anodization technology is applied to the full implant system, from abutment to apex.

Xeal – The pioneering Mucointegration™ surface1-3
Tissue integration begins here. Dense soft tissue contact with an abutment can act as a barrier that protects the underlying bone. This is the basis for long-term tissue health and stability.4-7
Golden color for natural appearance
The distinctive golden color occurs naturally during the manufacturing process. The hue also presents a natural appearance in the transmucosal zone.8
Preserving the surface chemistry and hydrophilicity.9
Surface chemistry and topography that are specially designed to promote soft tissue attachment.1,8
Surface chemistry to enhance cell attachment.1,8
Roughness, porosity and surface chemistry are important factors for tissue integration. Especially surface chemistry plays a vital role in enhancing cell attachment.9-11
TiUltra – More than roughness
Ideal tissue integration isn’t just about surface roughness, it’s about how every surface reacts with the tissue around it. TiUltra is an ultra-hydrophilic, multizone, anodized implant surface with a gradual topography from collar to apex.9,12,13
TiUltra features a gradual change in topography, becoming moderately rough and porous towards the implant apex.9
Minimally rough collar
At collar level, the TiUltra surface is minimally rough, non-porous and nanostructured. Its golden hue is a happy byproduct of the specific oxide thickness achieved during anodization.9
Collar designed for bone stability
TiUltra applied in the collar region features surface chemistry and topography that promote early osseointegration and are designed to support bone stability.9,14
The surface chemistry and hydrophilicity of both Xeal and TiUltra is preserved with the Protective Layer. This ensures that every implant and abutment arrives in pristine condition – to you and to your patients.8,9
