Essentials of the Trefoil system
Start date: 17 May 2019
End date: 17 May 2019
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 is a revolutionary fixed solution for an underserved population. This 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 course the presenter will discuss their experience with Trefoil™ and how this new concept has expanded the number of patients that they can treat with a fixed solution by reducing the treatment cost and time for the patient. The surgical aspect of this course will walk through a step-by-step protocol. This format will make it easier to learn and perform compared to existing surgical protocols. The restorative aspect will highlight a simplified restorative and laboratory process of the Trefoil™ concept. This simplified approach will allow more clinicians to offer a premium fixed solution even if their laboratory network capability is limited.
Trefoil™ is a revolutionary fixed solution for an underserved population. This concept offers the possibility for 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 course will present a surgical and prosthetic overview of the Trefoil™ concept with a detailed interactive hands-on workshop.
