Nobel Biocare is a company that manufactures dental implants and CAD/CAM-based individualized prosthetics and is headquartered in Kloten, Switzerland near the Zürich Airport. Nobel Biocare in its current form was founded in 2002. It originates in a partnership formed in 1978 between Swedish medical researcher Professor Per-Ingvar Brånemark and Bofors, a Swedish company, to industrialize Brånemark’s discovery of osseointegration Nobel Biocare is listed at the SIX Swiss Exchange.

Patent
Nobel Biocare | Date: 2017-01-11

The present invention discloses a dental implant (30; 130; 230; 330; 430) for preserving soft tissue and promoting bone growth, comprising an elongated implant body having a coronal end portion (31; 131; 431) and an apical end portion (32; 132; 332; 432); an external thread (40; 140; 240; 440); a flute arrangement (50; 150; 350; 450) comprising at least one helical flute having a depth; in which the apical end portion forms a blunt tip (39; 139; 339), and in which the helical flute spirals in opposite direction to the external thread, and the flute exits on the face of the blunt tip.


A method, system and computer program of planning a dental prosthesis in a patient are disclosed, comprising method steps, units or code segments for virtually planning a dental prosthesis. Envelope data is provided of an envelope guide, comprising data corresponding to a support surface for facial tissue, which is desired to result when the dental prosthesis is installed in the oral cavity of the patient. An outer envelope (200) of a desired dental prosthesis (302) in the oral cavity is simulated based on the envelope data. A desired dental restoration is provided and adjusted in a virtual environment relative to the simulated outer envelope, and dental prosthesis data is generated based on the adjusted desired dental restoration usable for producing the dental prosthesis.


The invention relates to a retention element (1) for attaching a first dental component (20), such as an abutment, to a second dental component (30), such as a dental implant. The retention element (1) comprises a coronal attachment portion (2) for attaching the retention element (1) to the first dental component (20), and an apical attachment portion (4) for attaching the retention element (1) to the second dental component (30). The retention element (1) is elastically deformable at least in all directions perpendicular to the direction from the apical attachment portion (4) towards the coronal attachment portion (2). The apical attachment portion (4) comprises at least one projection (8) extending in one or more directions substantially perpendicular to the direction from the apical attachment portion (4) towards the coronal attachment portion (2). Further, the invention relates to a dental assembly comprising the retention element (1) and to a use of the retention element (1) for attaching a first dental component (20), such as an abutment, to a second dental component (30), such as a dental implant, outside a human or animal body.

An implant structure or parts thereof having a surface composition obtainable through an anodic oxidation process is disclosed. The surface composition comprising titanium oxide in the anatase crystalline phase and at least 90% of the pores have an orifice with a mean inside diagonal distance of less than 0,1 m. It is also disclosed an implant system comprising said surface composition and a method of obtaining said surface.


Patent
Nobel Biocare | Date: 2017-05-31

Provisional prosthetic systems and methods of coupling such provisional prosthetic systems to a dental implant are disclosed. The provisional prosthetic system can include at least one dental component having a provisional connection feature and a prosthesis. A clinician can couple the prosthesis to the dental component using a bonding agent. The clinician can then drill a hole through the prosthesis. The hole can be configured to receive a fastener to securely fasten the prosthesis and dental component to the implant.


A surface structure is produced on an outer surface of an implant or a fixture and forms a base structure in a range of implants related to different types and qualities of jaw bone. During production of the surface, parts of a turning tool are placed against the implant or against a blank which is intended to form the implant. The parts and/or the implant are assigned controls which give rise to mutual displacements between the parts and the implant so that the parts follow a substantially spiral trajectory along the outer surface. By means of said controls, a long wave pattern is formed with successive peaks and with through lying between these. In this connection, a through can be arranged adjacent to the outer parts of an existing thread. The controls are chosen so as to produce through depths in the range of 25 to 250 m, preferably 50 to 200 m. The invention also relates to an implant which bas the same character as the implant produced by the method.


Patent
Nobel Biocare | Date: 2017-01-11

It is disclosed a dental implant (130; 230; 330) for promoting bone growth. The dental implant comprises an elongated implant body having a coronal end portion (131; 231; 331) and an apical end portion (132; 232; 332), at least one external thread (140; 240; 340) and a flute arrangement having a depth. The flute arrangement has at least two helical flutes (150; 250; 350) that spiral in the general direction of said at least one external thread (140; 240; 340). The flutes (150; 250; 350) propagate with a greater lead than said at least one thread (140; 240; 340). The flute arrangement is capable of scraping off and transferring bone debris in the coronal direction of the implant during insertion. It is also disclosed a method of using the dental implant and an implant system according to the present invention.


Patent

The present application relates to a fitting for insertion into a dental implant in an insertion orientation defining a central insertion axis and an insertion direction of the fitting. The fitting includes at least one resilient spring member being expandable perpendicularly to the insertion axis of the fitting for impeding a movement of the fitting relative to the dental implant along the insertion axis when inserted into the dental implant. It further includes an alignment feature for rotationally aligning the fitting relative to the dental implant about the insertion axis. The fitting is characterized in that the alignment feature extends further in the insertion direction than the spring member.

The present invention relates to a placement device for a dental component, a method for handling a dental component with a placement device, a dental component for placement with a placement device and a set comprising a placement device and a dental component. The placement device (1) for a dental component (2) is preferably an implant and comprises a proximal end (11), a distal end (12) and a coupling mechanism (20) for coupling the distal end (12) to the dental component. The coupling mechanism includes at least one movable pin (21) having a longitudinal axis (A1) and being movable along its longitudinal axis (A1) relative to the placement device (1) for engaging the dental component. It also includes at least one engagement part (28) at the distal end of the placement device (1) for engaging the dental component, the engagement part having a longitudinal axis (A2). A secure interlock between the dental component and the placement device is achieved by arranging the longitudinal axis (A2) of the engagement part (28) at an angle () relative to the longitudinal axis (A1) of the movable pin (21).
