The original NobelReplace was the first implant with a tapered body.
In the late
This all changed in 1997, with the introduction of NobelReplace. Its tapered body more closely resembled a natural tooth root. It was designed not just to mimic human anatomy, but to provide high primary stability.
Gradually, the new tapered implant increased in popularity among clinicians. The success of the design was then given a further boost by the addition of a new easy-to-use connection, color-coding and a step-by-step drilling protocol. These new features all played a part in reducing complexity and increasing predictability. As a result, Replace Select Tapered and NobelReplace Tapered Groovy went on to become the world’s most frequently used implant system.
The evolution didn’t stop there, either. Today, six versions of the tapered implant family are available. Whether you prefer an internal conical connection or an internal tri-channel, there’s a NobelReplace variant for you. Fully TiUnite, machined and partially machined collars are available, and there's also the option for platform shifting. As a result, clinicians using NobelReplace experience high treatment flexibility using just one system.
