Nobel Biocare, the leader in full arch rehabilitation, is further advancing its comprehensive product range for edentulous treatment with a new innovative concept called Trefoil™. This new concept offers the possibility of same-day rehabilitation of the edentulous mandible or a failing dentition in the lower jaw with a definitive implant-supported prosthesis. Trefoil™ embodies the Nobel Biocare objective, “to treat more patients better,” by offering a simplified clinical workflow. This particular concept was conceived and developed to offer a premium alternative to an entirely new patient population. It is consistent with P-I Branemark’s “philosophy of osseointegration” and our common healthcare goal of addressing the needs of many.

During this presentation, Dr. Kyle Stanley will discuss his experience with Trefoil™ and how this new concept has expanded the number of patients that he can treat with a fixed solution by reducing the treatment cost and time for the patient. Dr. Stanley will review the standardized guided surgical protocol as well as highlight the simplified restorative and laboratory process of the Trefoil™ System. This simplified approach will allow more clinicians to offer a premium fixed solution even if their laboratory network capability is limited.
Trefoil™ offers the possibility for the patients to receive a fixed solution at a price point which they are more likely to be able to afford compared to traditional treatment options. The concept will provide a larger quality of life improvement compared to treatment with an implant supported removable denture, which many of these patients might have been offered historically. “Time-to-final-teeth” will also be reduced as fewer visits are required and the final bridge is delivered on day of surgery.

This lecture will present a surgical and prosthetic overview of the Trefoil™ System.

Learning Objectives: At completion of this presentation, participants should be able to:

1. Appreciate knowledge of a new affordable screw-retained implant option for the mandible.
2. Apply shortened treatment time leading to greater patient acceptance.
3. Understand pretreatment procedures.
4. Understand both the surgical and prosthetic protocols.
