today Nobel Biocare Global Symposium June 25, 2016

Nobel Biocare Global Symposium 10 products NobelDesign Powerful CAD tools for dental restoration without complexity first presented in New York by Nobel Biocare n For decades, Nobel Biocare has been rede- fining the work of dental technicians around the world with NobelProcera. The system be- came a benchmark, paving the way to accu- rate, consistent and efficient manufacture of dental prostheses. Because of NobelProcera, new materials once thought impractical and difficult to work with became the mainstay, enabling restorative solutions with high strength and esthetics. Now, Nobel Biocare has introduced the next benchmark, NobelDesign Software, which combines advanced CAD tools with an intuitive and adaptive interface. With Nobel- Design, dental laboratories gain access to the latest NobelProcera restorations, enabling them to deliver a wider range of precision- engineered prosthetic solutions to dental clinicians and their patients. Familiar friend, powerful ally The intuitive NobelDesign interface sup- ports a simplified workflow that allows dental technicians to create, scan and man- age multiple cases with ease. Best of all, it adapts to each user’s preferred way of working, increasing workflow efficiency over time. For many dental technicians, NobelDesign will seem familiar and, at the same time, fresh. NobelDesign integrates well-known exocad CAD tools for the efficient design of cemented and screw-retained restorations, accessed via the NobelDesign Cockpit. Creating outstanding restorations made easy When it comes to creating restora- tions, there is real power in the NobelDesign toolbox. Numerous robust and automated applications are included in the software’s base module, assisting dental technicians with the design of crowns, abutments and bridges. Tools are also available that provide users with insight into how their resto- rations will look and function in patients’ mouths. Once cases have been set up and scanned into NobelDesign, libraries filled with arche- typal teeth, crowns, bridges and implants provide excellent starting points from which dental technicians can create their own pa- tient-specific restorations. Another way to accelerate the design workflow is NobelDesign’s Mirror Tooth func- tion. With it, dental technicians use a mirror image of the shape and anatomy of the con- tralateral quadrant of the target tooth. This copy, or diagnostic tooth, forms the basis upon which they design the patient-specific restoration. Esthetics are important, but function is the ultimate goal. For testing function in the virtual environment, NobelDesign offers the Virtual Articulator feature. This application allows users to view their designs in a pa- tient’s complete dentition. Articulated move- ments visualize and predict occlusion, helping dental technicians confirm prosthetic fit. During the design process for screw- retained restorations, the screw access hole is typically predetermined based on implant placement. However, in cases in which es- thetics would be sacrificed or fixation of the restoration could be difficult, a dental techni- cian can adjust the angulation of the screw access hole within the restoration. With this option, screw access can be angulated from 0° to 25° in a 360° radius. This can enable the use of a cement-free restoration in situa- tions in which this might previously have been impossible. Another tool allows users to create a cut- back for their restoration to aid with veneer- ing. With NobelDesign’s Shrinking feature, the technician can easily select which area to cut back, depending on whether he or she wants to fully or partially veneer the restoration. During the final stages of restoration design, dental technicians can employ the exocad TruSmile technology incorporated into the software. This feature renders resto- rations with photographic realism, display- ing final tooth shape and fissure design. This is virtual reality at its best; the closest repre- sentation of a restoration’s appearance once seated in the patient’s mouth. The future of CAD/CAM As the latest milestone in Nobel Biocare’s ongoing advancement in CAD/CAM, all forth- coming NobelProcera innovations will only be available through NobelDesign. While cur- rent NobelProcera CAD users can continue to use their existing systems, NobelDesign will offer an increasing number of advantages. Additional features are already in develop- ment, as is enhanced integration with other solutions. NobelDesign is accessible only in combi- nation with the highly accurate NobelProcera 2G Scanner and is available on an annual subscription basis. This gives dental labora- tories added flexibility by helping them avoid a sizeable one-time payment to start. World-class support, high-end results As a leading dental solutions provider, Nobel Biocare offers unparalleled support to its dental partners with NobelDesign in terms of customer service, training and resto- ration quality, all delivering priceless peace of mind to dental professionals. Based on user feedback, the suite of ap- plications available in NobelDesign not only assists dental technicians in their pursuit of- prosthetic perfection, but also makes their work easier and more rewarding. 7  Left: Mirror Tooth accelerates the design process by starting with a mirror copy of the contralateral quadrant of the target tooth.—Right: Angulated Screw Access allows technicians to reposition the screw access exit hole to a more favorable location within the restoration. More to explore! More information about NobelDesign is avail- able at There will be two hands-on courses for NobelDesign today at the Nobel Biocare Global Symposium. A basic hands-on course, in which participants will have the opportunity to create superior restorations with the new NobelDesign software, will be held from 8 to 10 a.m., and an advanced hands-on course with the same focus will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.  Left: With the Virtual Articulator, the user digitally guides a restoration through excursive movements to achieve accurate occlusion.—Right: The TruSmile feature yields photorealistic renderings of fissure design and tooth shape.
