Designed with clinicians’ needs in mind, NobelActive offers maximum versatility in placement and restorability, along with high initial stability, even in compromised bone indications.
NobelActive is an advanced implant system that requires previous implant experience and special training. With its unique tip and thread design, NobelActive delivers high initial stability in all indications. Experienced users can take advantage of its gradual bone-condensing property and apical drilling blades to make fine adjustments to implant orientation—optimizing the final position of the prosthetic connection. Parallel drilling protocols offer dental professionals the flexibility to match individual patient prerequisites in preparing the implant insertion site. Built-in platform shifting, designed to increase the volume onto which alveolar soft tissue can grow, produces a better tissue interface and more natural-looking esthetics.
To satisfy the demands of restorative clinicians, the NobelActive prosthetic connection is designed to accommodate many restorative options. A comprehensive prosthetic portfolio is available for NobelActive, including NobelProcera individualized prosthetics, for natural-looking restorations. With this broad prosthetic assortment and the restorative flexibility of the dual-function internal conical connection, great versatility is possible for achieving beautiful, natural-looking esthetics.

Case Study: NobelActive
Gary Orentlicher, DMD
Immediate implant placement, maxillary anterior tooth
|Preoperative intraoral frontal photograph of tooth No. 9, which had undergone prior treatment with root canal therapy and placement of an endodontic post/core and porcelain-fused-to-metal crown.||Initial 2-mm osteotomy, redirecting the implant in the anterior extraction socket.|
|Insertion of a NobelActive implant (4.3 mm x 13 mm) using the surgical driver and manual insertion technique. The implant was redirected into proper position.||Four months postoperative view of tooth No. 9 with NobelProcera Zirconia abutment in place.|
|Final porcelain restorations. Tooth No. 8 was restored with a matching porcelain veneer.||Postoperative radiograph. This case illustrates the use of the NobelActive’s unique design characteristics.|
