Technology you can trust



“The developments of the NobelClinician™ system for diagnostics and treatment planning have been absolutely superb throughout the last decade, particularly with regards to the smart fusion techniques,” says Dr Sharif Khan from Rockingham House Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in West Yorkshire. “I have also been impressed by the rapid treatment protocols that can be used to minimise treatment times, as this is something modern patients are concerned about.”


With its Smart Fusion technology, NobelClinician™ combines 3D imagery of anatomical structures with soft tissue information from optical scans for superior visualisation, diagnostics and treatment planning.


Like all solutions from Nobel Biocare, the NobelClinician™ software is supported by a wealth of clinical studies.


For example, it is possible to accurately assess the available bone volume and this has been found to enhance predictability of treatment.


The bone volume can also be properly optimised by matching the implant design and drilling sequence to the bone quality for increased primary stability.


What’s more, virtual planning and communication with NobelClinician™ has been linked with higher treatment acceptance and better patient satisfaction with care and treatment outcomes.


So to make the most of technologies you can trust to improve your diagnostics, treatment planning and treatment outcomes, contact Nobel Biocare today.

The benefits of guided surgery

The benefits of guided surgery



Balraj Sekhon highlights two cases to illustrate the benefits of guided surgery

As a general dentist, I have found using advanced implant planning software such as coDiagnostiX™ to be very beneficial and I have been using it fully for about a year now. I don't have a CT scanner in-house (it would be difficult for me to justify the costs as a mixed practice), so we refer our patients to a local scan centre and they send us an open file scan that we can place into the software. Once in the coDiagnostiXTM system we can take the various measurements and assess the best placement for the implant.

coDiagnostiXTM is an investment in terms of direct cost and time to gain the depth of knowledge to fully utilise all the elements and tools in the system. However, I firmly believe it improves the patient journey, delivers a more efficient surgery process, reduces stress, and ultimately delivers better dentistry.

Case example 1 using Straumann coDiagnostiXTM

Replacement of two posterior teeth with screw-retained crowns.
