an acronym for Crown & Bridge
& Implants. That's because we're
convinced that dentists around the
world are about to become as
comfortable with implants as they are
with standard crown and bridge
It is a concept for incorporating dental
implants into regular crown & bridge dentistry. Patients are learning
more and more about implants and the benefits of a permanent esthetic
solution. They are starting to demand it. That means that all dentists
and laboratories must be ready to provide this treatment on a regular
As you all know, bone that is not
in function slowly but surely disappears. With continued resorption, initial
crown & bridge work often has to be redone or altered. As time goes
by, the patient can even become impossible to treat with conventional
methods. And to replace a missing tooth, healthy adjacent teeth must be
ground down. This is not necessary if a single implant is placed. In addition,
the bone is activated and thereby maintained. So there is no question
that implant treatment is the optimal alternative for the patient. But
is it profitable for the dentist? Of course it is. Recent studies have
indicated that the profit level is about twice as high for implants as
it is for regular crown & bridge work.
WWhat makes it easy?
One common misconception is that
implant treatment is difficult. And perhaps this was true in the past.
Nobel Biocare has therefore developed a system that is extremely easy
to use - whether you place the implant yourself or just restore it. The
system is called Replace Select Tapered. It is color coded and designed
for ultimate simplicity. The system includes the Easy Abutment (among
other products). This abutment is so easy to use there was just no other
name for it. Just snap, inject and pick up. It is now available with a
prefabricated ceramic coping that fits perfectly. It is made with the
unique Procera technology that offers translucent, ultra-esthetic restorations.
Taking the impression is fast, easy and accurate. The result is a system
that can be used by any dentist. It is no longer difficult to offer implant
treatment at any practice. Obviously we provide the proper training whether
you plan to do the surgery, the restorative work or both. For the general
practitioner, this is the perfect approach to providing your patients
with the most esthetic and functional prosthesis. Apart from being profitable
and professionally rewarding, you will also benefit from guaranteed patient
satisfaction. It is a win/win solution for everyone involved.
