NobelReplace and Replace Select Tapered – one implant system for all your needs

The well-established and easy-to-use implant system

The original tapered implant

Thanks to their high flexibility and ease-of-use, you can choose a safe and reliable treatment for all your patients – from single-tooth to full-arch, for bone- or tissue-level restorations, and with one- or two-stage surgical protocols.

NobelReplace and the original tapered implant Replace Select mimic the shape of a natural tooth root. They are designed for high initial stability in all loading protocols, including Immediate Function.

Why NobelReplace and Replace Select Tapered?

Experience the highly tactile feel

The easy-to-use connection has three interlocking channels for secure and accurate abutment placement.

Simplify treatment with a straightforward surgical protocol

The surgery kit has a step-by-step drilling protocol and all components are consistently color-coded. This simplifies site preparation and ensures a predictable outcome.

Achieve high initial stability even in compromised bone

The original tapered implant mimicking the shape of a natural tooth root is designed for high initial stability. NobelReplace and Replace Select Tapered are ideal for Immediate Function in both extraction sockets and healed sites.1, 2

Choose between four options for high treatment flexibility

Cover your clinical needs with only one system. Whatever your patient’s requirements and personal preference, the four implant options ensure total treatment flexibility.

Enhanced osseointegration

NobelReplace and Replace Select Tapered feature Nobel Biocare’s unique oxidized TiUnite surface with grooves (Groovy), which maintains high stability during healing through faster bone formation and ensures long-term success.3, 4, 5, 6, 7

Dr. Christopher B. Marchack, USA – Mandibular rehabilitation with implant-supported overdenture

Situation: Female patient, 92 years old, bad fitting prosthesis with decreased stability especially while eating.

Solution: Extraction of the remaining teeth. A conventional denture was advised in the maxilla and a placement of two NobelReplace Tapered implants with Locator Abutments and a new implant-retained overdenture in the mandible.

Dr. Rubén Davó, Spain – complete solution for severely resorbed maxilla and mandible

Situation: 60-year-old female with severe bone resorption of the upper and lower jaw with complete dentures.

Solution:  Brånemark System Zygoma and NobelReplace Tapered implants were used to rehabilitate the maxilla. For the mandible, the All-on-4® treatment concept was chosen. As a final prosthesis, fixed precision-milled NobelProcera Implant Bridges were chosen for both the maxilla and the mandible.

Easy-to-use prosthetic connection for efficient workflow

The internal tri-channel connection offers an easy-to-use connection with an unrivaled tactile feel for accurate and predictable abutment placement:

  • Get access to the large pool of trained restorative clinicians  who prefer the tri-channel connection
  • Unrivaled tactile feel for accurate and predictable abutment placement
  • Color-coded for accurate and fast identification
  • Three positions



Dr. Egon Euwe, Italy

“NobelReplace Platform Shift allows existing NobelReplace Tapered users to broaden their implant offering without having to abandon the familiar surgical protocol or the color-coded components that drop into place with the tri-channel connection. When crestal bone preservation and soft tissue volume are critical, this is my implant of choice.”

Dr. Baldwin W. Marchack from the USA explains why NobelReplace Tapered is his preferred implant system.

Dr. Baldwin W. Marchack, USA

"After more than 25 years of experience with dental implant treatments, NobelReplace Tapered is still my preferred implant system. I especially like the high restorative flexibility for serving all my patients' needs. The consistent performance and clinical outcome makes it an implant I trust for any clinical indication."

Dr. José Luis González Valenzuela from Spain explains why he is impressed with the NobelReplace Platform Shift.

Dr. José Luis González Valenzuela, Spain

“Judging from the results four months after having placed these implants in clinical trials, I am very impressed. The platform shift solution shows a marked improvement on soft tissue response and the implant can also be used without having to change our methodology, drills and implant drivers, which is a welcome and stress-free innovation!”
