BIRMINGHAM, UK: Nobel Biocare has introduced its On1 restorative concept to the UK market this morning at the Dentistry Show in Birmingham. More than just a new abutment line, this restorative approach was developed to support soft-tissue healing and address the clinician’s desire for flexibility and ease of use, the company said.

According to Nobel Biocare, the On1 Base can be placed on any of its conical-connection implants at the time of surgery. It brings the connection for restorative components to tissue level so that, unlike with conventional two-stage healing and temporary abutments for bone level implants, the biological seal created by the soft tissue remains undisturbed for optimised healing.

Nobel Biocare emphasises that the On1 concept has been designed with ease of use in mind. For example, the On1 IOS Healing Cap supports an intra-oral scanning approach, which can speed up the impression-taking process. For the surgeon, the On1 concept offers peace of mind that only biocompatible, precision-engineered Nobel Biocare components can be used for the restoration.

With two height options available, there is flexibility to change the On1 Base depending on the thickness of the soft tissue. Unlike with conventional tissue level implants, this makes it possible to optimise short- and long-term aesthetic outcomes, according to Nobel Biocare.

In addition to On1, the company is introducing a new deproteinised bovine bone mineral matrix in Birmingham that expands its creos family with a complete solution for all bone and tissue regeneration procedures. The creos xenogain assortment consists of non-sintered material that is produced using unique pro-cessing methods to remove the bovine proteins and lipids while preserving the natural bone matrix, which is characterised by micro- and macro¬structures, a large specific surface area and low crystallinity. Available in multiple sizes and for different ap¬plication methods, the options are intended to be the perfect complement to the creos xenoprotect resorbable membrane, which has already earned a reputation for excellent handling and strength.

Also on display in Birmingham for clinicians to see and explore are Nobel Biocare’s original All-on-4 treatment concept and associated solutions, including the NobelActive, NobelParallel Conical Connection, NobelSpeedy and NobelZygoma implant systems, as well as the angulated screw channel abutment and unique Omnigrip tooling. Visitors are invited to Booth J60 at the Dentistry Show to find out more.
