Behind all NobelProcera products sits a heritage of over 30 years of development of leading CAD/CAM dental solutions. It is this extensive expertise that Nobel Biocare has utilized to develop the new NobelProcera 2G System.
For busy dental laboratories looking to expand and differentiate their business, the NobelProcera 2G System is a valuable tool. The new 2G System includes updated software and an exciting new scanner which provides direct access to high-quality prosthetic solutions through the NobelProcera global production network.
Expert engineering provides the next-generation scanner with efficiency and flexibility at a level that will significantly increase a lab's productivity without compromising on precision. While its predecessor was recognized as extremely accurate,1 the NobelProcera 2G Scanner offers accuracy that betters even this high standard.
With the NobelProcera 2G System, users benefit from direct access to prosthetic solutions that deliver a great functional and aesthetic outcome, whether that be for a single coping or an advanced full-arch implant case. Plus, with direct local product support providing training for both dental laboratories and their restorative dentist customers, the NobelProcera 2G System helps facilitate stronger relationships between professionals, enabling them to grow their business by treating more patients better.
"Ease-of-use was a key priority during the creation of the 2G System with the development process taking into account valuable feedback from first-generation NobelProcera Scanner users," said Brendan Hicks, NobelProcera Product Manager at NobelBiocare. "While the new System may resemble the original in appearance, the efficiency of the 2G version is noticeably superior. For existing NobelProcera Scanner users, improved ease of operation is also simple to obtain. Nobel Biocare is running an exchange program which makes it easy to upgrade to the 2G System."
Smarter positioning, greater productivity
Key to increasing productivity is the introduction of the Smart Motorized Holder. Scan objects are easily secured to the new holder using magnets. Moving independently, the holder then automatically positions each object on the model at the ideal height, tilt and rotation.
Efficiency is increased by reducing the need for user interaction while at the same time improving the scanning range. Additional new workflow options such as articulated model scanning have therefore also been introduced. The result is optimal scan data that enables consistency with less manual operation. This is the case even for difficult scanning situations such as undercuts, freeing up technicians to focus on the tasks where they can deliver most value for their laboratory.
Predictably precise results
The NobelProcera 2G System makes it easier for dental professionals to process larger and more complex cases with confidence. This is especially critical in regards to scanning and designing multiple unit implant restorations such as implant bridge and implant bar overdentures, where success is measured in micron accuracy. The user is also offered the flexibility to control their scanning and to add additional scan data, at any stage of the process. This means predictably high-quality prosthetics for each and every customer.
A next-generation scanner for the workflow of the future
The NobelProcera 2G System will play a crucial role as Nobel Biocare introduces its new seamlessly efficient integrated treatment workflow in 2014. This digital workflow brings together the latest innovations at each stage of the treatment process over the secure, online NobelConnect network and is supported by the leading diagnostics and treatment planning software, NobelClinician.
Current standard procedure is for a clinician to take an initial impression which is sent to a lab for the creation of a radiographic guide. With the NobelProcera 2G System the radiographic guide is no longer needed, lowering the cost for the clinician and increasing flexibility.
Instead, the laboratory can add further value as a treatment partner by providing intraoral model surface information that assists with the clinician's diagnostic treatment plan. Thanks to its solid model scanning capability, the 2G Scanner delivers a model scan with intraoral surface information such as soft tissue and diagnostic tooth set-up. This can be combined with a patient's CBCT scan by Smart Fusion Technology within the NobelClinician™ Software. The result is an accurate diagnostic picture displaying both soft and hard tissue information for the clinician without a radiographic guide, saving precious time for both dental professional and patient.
With vital diagnostic information coming directly from the lab, dental technicians gain the opportunity to discuss their restorative considerations with the clinician at an early stage. Such a collaborative approach improves implant diagnostics and therefore the overall treatment outcome, reducing the likelihood of prosthetic challenges arising.
At the next step, based on the post-surgical situation, individualized CAD/CAM prosthetics are easily designed in the NobelProcera Software and then ordered digitally from NobelProcera's integrated global production network. The end product is a precisely manufactured restoration of outstanding quality that comes with a certificate of authenticity and an extensive 5-year warranty.
In summary, the NobelProcera 2G System offers an evolutionary scanner that provides next-generation results. For the dental professional looking to take their restorations to a new level, it offers increased productivity, precision and collaboration with the clinician that enables them to build their business
