Staying up to date with innovations in implant dentistry
Cvejanović Clinic has been using Nobel Biocare implants since the 1990s (back then the company was called NobelPharma), when implant placement was still in its semi-experimental stage. We have always endeavored to offer our patients one mid-range, cost-effective implant system and one high-end system, and this premium brand has always been the Swiss Nobel Biocare, which is exactly why we were particularly interested in this manufacturer’s new type of implant – NobelParallel CC. After a mandatory training and a testing period, NobelParallel has become one of the standard systems used at Cvejanović Clinic since 2016.
Fastest placement possible
NobelParallel Conical Connection represents the crowning achievement of almost 40 years of continuous development of dental implant technology of Nobel Biocare Company, a legal and patent successor of the inventor of dental implants, Swedish doctor Per-Ingvar Brånemark. The guiding principle of this company’s researchers was the creation of implants whose placement would be simple and quick in order to reduce the time spent at the dentist’s, as well as the period between the placement of an implant into the bone and the placement of a functional crown on it. Another problem the Nobel Biocare experts tackled was how to provide reliable implants for the elderly, whose bones are weak. NobelParallel CC is a type of implant that has gone the farthest in this respect, because its key advantage compared to other systems is greater stability from the moment it gets in contact with the jaw.
Bone preserving technology
The most significant advantage of NobelParallel CC system lies in something called platform switching. Platform switching is a method where the connection between an implant and an abutment is designed in such way that the abutment does not get in contact with the bone. Because the crown applies pressure on implants caused by chewing, this leads to minute shifting of the abutment in the implant socket. This type of design is meant to reduce the loss of bone over time, which is accomplished precisely by distancing the abutment from the bone tissue, unlike the older systems where the implant-abutment bond was vertically aligned and more likely to lead to bone loss around the dental implant.
