Implants: Nobel Replace Tapered Implants

Tapered ImplantThe unique root-like shape of the tapered implant family provides superb initial stability, makes drilling simpler and placement easier. It is shaped to resemble a tooth root making the surgical procedure exceptionally simple and predictable – especially for immediate placement after extraction.

Placement in immediate extraction sites minimizes the number of surgeries and shortens treatment time.

Mini Implants IMTEC

Mini ImplantThe Mini Implant consists of a miniature titanium implant that acts like the root of your tooth and a retaining fixture that is incorporated into the base of your denture, The head of the implant is shaped like a ball and the retaining fixture acts like a socket that contains a rubber O-ring. The O-ring snaps over the ball when the denture is seated and holds the denture at a predetermined level of force. When seated, the denture gently rests on the gum tissue. The implant fixtures allow for micro-mobility while withstanding natural lifting forces.

Mini implants can function as long-term supporting structures rather than as short-term or medium term devices. In fact, some have been successfully functioning in patients' jaws for several decades. In the past several years, some clinicians have been utilizing them for single tooth replacements and in crown and bridge cases.
