The Trefoil team has been rectifying the technical deficiencies of Novum using engineering and clinical technology that was not available in the mid 1900s.
The framework has three internal compensation mechanisms. This groundbreaking adjustable framework has the capability of correcting meaningful minor misalignments.
The implants are placed with computer guided surgery to achieve precise fit.
The Trefoil concept embodies the Nobel Biocare objective, “to treat more patients better” by offering a reduction in cost using a simplified clinical workflow, a standardized prefabricated framework, and minimized componentry that reduces treatment time.
