Natural esthetics and soft-tissue harmony: Growing together with a ceramic solution
A trend in the dental implant market is the growth in patient preference for metal-free solutions, a demand for treatment that brings the look and feel of natural teeth. For practices looking to offer their patients an alternative to titanium, Nobel Biocare has harnessed the evolution of ceramic implant solutions with NobelPearl.
NobelPearl is a unique alternative to titanium. A metal-free, two-piece ceramic implant solution with a cement-free internal connection, it has been designed to support natural soft-tissue appearance. Clinicians seeking a ceramic solution for their patients might see cement as the only possibility for restoration placement. While intraoral cementation can be a viable option, the use of excess cement is known to be associated with soft-tissue inflammation and the development of peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis.1 To avoid this risk through screw retention, yet remain one-hundred percent metal free, NobelPearl features the innovative VICARBO® screw made of carbon-fiber reinforced polymer. In addition, NobelPearl offers greater restorative flexibility compared with one-piece or cemented ceramic implants, thanks to the two-piece, reversible, cement-free internal connection design.
NobelPearl is a new treatment option that follows a range of well-established workflows for two-piece implants and will be integrated into Nobel Biocare’s digital workflow. Clinicians seeking a successful start in ceramic implantology and wanting to expand their choice for patients can gain peace of mind with an easy-to-adopt solution.
