NobelActive 3.0 – narrow, safe and reliable

NobelActive 3.0 mm implants demonstrate high implant survival rates and optimal hard and soft tissue results in the anterior.


Implant placement in the anterior area is technically challenging, given the narrow shape of lateral upper and lower incisors and the high esthetic impact. In a retrospective study1, 45 patients received a total of 58 NobelActive 3.0 mm implants for the rehabilitation of mandibular and lateral maxillary incisors.

Both bone level (remodeling: –0.36 ± 0.85 mm) and soft tissue health (pocket probing depth: 1.75 ± 0.58 mm) were preserved at 1-year follow-up. The implant survival rate was in line with previous reports (CSR 96.4%, two implants lost), but the high number of challenging cases (implant placement in sites with congenitally missing teeth, n=20) and immediate prosthetic loading (n=23) of this study emphasize the successful clinical outcome with NobelActive 3.0 mm implants.
