NobelActive: The NobelActive implant system was introduced in May 2008 and went on to sell more than 130,000 implants in ’08. Here at IDS, the company is announcing the inclusion of new prosthetic solutions, now offering a complete range of prosthetic components and new implant lengths. NobelActive is said to deliver optimal initial stability and allow for more natural-looking esthetics thanks to its built-in platform shifting functionality, adjustable implant orientation ability and dual-function prosthetic connection. This extended range includes two new lengths of NobelActive for the existing three diameters (8.5mm and 18mm), LOCATOR abutments for simplified removable restorations, QuickTemp, Immediate Temporary and Temporary abutments for immediate temporization solutions, and GoldAdapt, Snappy and Multi-unit abutments for final single-tooth and multiple-tooth-bridge restorations.
