System Treats Edentulous Patients and Failing Dentition

Richard Gawel


Nobel Biocare’s introduction of the Trefoil system represents a breakthrough in efficiency for treating edentulous patients and patients with failing dentition, according to the company, enabling the fixed, definitive, full-arch restoration of the mandible in one day. These significant efficiency gains are the result of an optimized workflow and componentry, which enables reduced chair time in comparison with conventional treatments that require provisional restorations.


The cost-effective Trefoil system features a premanufactured titanium bar. Passive fit is made possible by a groundbreaking fixation mechanism that compensates for deviations in implant placement. The bar is retained on 3 implants featuring the TiUnite surface, which is proven to support immediate function. Combined with the straightforward restorative workflow, this makes the delivery of a fixed, definitive, full-arch restoration possible on the day of surgery. Upon launch, the Trefoil system is already backed by a year of scientific evidence, Nobel Biocare reports, with preliminary results of a 5-year, international, multicenter study showing successful early clinical outcomes.
