Nobel Biocare Global Symposium 13 special feature Your laboratory can become the prosthetic provider of choice CAD/CAM implant bars on demand with NobelProcera Scan and Design Services by Michael Stuart, Nobel Biocare n With more than 300 million edentu- lous people worldwide, the opportunity for dental professionals to improve patients’ quality of life is huge. Since dental implant treatment offers a more efficient and com- fortable alternative to traditional complete dentures, demand for implant bar overden- tures is set to grow. Consequently, dental lab- oratories that can provide high-quality im- plant bars to support overdentures have increased business prospects. Ramping up implant bar production, however, can re- quire a significant investment in equipment, time and staff training, which many labo- ratories simply cannot afford. That is where NobelProcera Scan and Design Services can help. Send a model, receive unrivaled bars In order to use the service, the laboratory simply prepares the case material as normal, noting the details of the case on the short accompanying form, before sending it to be scanned and designed by NobelProcera’s team of skilled technicians. From receipt of the model, the scan and design part of the process typically takes one day. Given the extensive range of platforms covered in the Scan and Design offering, laboratories with a NobelProcera system can use the scan-only service to increase their system options while retaining control of the design. The scan is sent back to the laboratory’s NobelProcera software so that they can com- plete the design themselves. Alternatively, those seeking only high-quality centralized milling can send a completed wax-up of a bar direct to production with the service. Premium production and peace of mind Once the technician is happy with the design, the bar is sent for milling. As Nobel- Procera produces implant bars only from solid blocks of surgical-grade titanium, possible weaknesses arising from soldering or laser welding are avoided. Two to three days later, the precisely manufactured bar is shipped to the laboratory, together with a material authenticity certifi- cate and a five-year product warranty. Investing in quality, not equipment This flexible approach to outsourcing of- fers many benefits for laboratories. Primarily, it means they can offer precision-fitting bars in NobelProcera’s celebrated high quality without needing to invest in a NobelProcera CAD/CAM system or purchase and maintain expensive production technology. It also means that implant bar cases can be accepted even when the laboratory is working at full capacity or if the laboratory does not yet pos- sess the required skill in this particular area. A further advantage is the breadth of the NobelProcera service offering. NobelProcera’s wide range of both fixed and fixed–removable implant bar solutions caters to a variety of clinical needs and preferences, with the Scan and Design Services available for over 170 implant platforms. Outsource means opportunity By removing the need for investments and offering unrivaled results, NobelProcera’s Scan and Design Services give laboratories the ability to satisfy requests for high-quality implant bars that they might otherwise have been forced to pass up. In other words, it grants laboratories the flexibility to take op- portunities that they cannot afford to miss. 7  With NobelProcera Scan and Design Services, laboratories can obtain a range of high-quality precision-milled implant bars simply by sending a model to NobelProcera.
