NobelParallel Conical Connection - the straightforward implant

by: Michael Stuart

The new NobelParallel Conical Connection brings the best of Nobel Biocare’s extensive design experience to clinicians and patients. Based on tried and true biomechanical and surface chemistry concepts, this new implant provides strength, stability and a perfectly fitting platform for both simple and advanced cement-free restorations alike.

Multiple-teeth restoration with NobelParallel CC implants

When the late Professor Per-Ingvar Brånemark placed the very first modern dental implants fifty years ago, the implants he used had parallel walls. Those implants stayed firmly in place for that patient, Gösta Larsson, for the rest of his life. Half a century later, Nobel Biocare continues to develop this straight design concept with the launch of NobelParallel Conical Connection

This new implant combines best-in-class features from the well-proven Brånemark and NobelSpeedy Groovy parallel-walled implant systems with an advanced internal connection. It marks the latest breakthrough in Nobel Biocare’s long-standing pursuit of innovation that benefits both patients and clinicians. 

Stability and flexibility in parallel

NobelParallel Conical Connection offers extraordinary flexibility. It is designed for use in all bone qualities and for a wide range of indications. With implant sizes ranging from a 3.75 mm Narrow Platform variant to a 5.5 mm Wide Platform option, NobelParallel Conical Connection can be used in both the anterior and the posterior. 

Whether used in the posterior or anterior regions, the straightforward surgical protocol will be appreciated by both experienced clinicians and those early in their implant careers. It offers flexibility and shortens treatment time, benefitting the patient too.

Straight to stability

Together, the surgical protocol and implant design form a unique combination intended to provide good primary stability in order to enable Immediate Function where possible. The thread design and tapered apex of the implant help ensure primary stability by allowing both underpreparation of the surgical site and bicortical anchorage.

Osseointegration during the initial healing phase is enhanced by Nobel Biocare’s unique TiUnite surface when compared with machined surfaces.

A strong connection 

This evolution of the original implant design achieves its full potential when used together with original Nobel Biocare components. 

Like all Nobel Biocare implants, NobelParallel Conical Connection is designed to achieve predictable results when used with Nobel Biocare restorative solutions. The implant has an internal conical connection with hexagonal interlocking for high mechanical strength. This advanced connection also opens the door to a wide range of innovative restorative options. 

These include the NobelProcera ASC (angulated screw channel) Abutment for easier access and increased esthetic possibilities, and the NobelProcera FCZ (full-contour zirconia) Implant Crown, which possesses the strength required to deal with high occlusal forces in the posterior. 

Advanced, cement-free solutions such as these make it possible for NobelParallel Conical Connection to provide optimized results without the risks associated with excess cement. 

In short, clinicians looking for one implant system to meet all their requirements need look no further than to NobelParallel Conical Connection.
