The Trefoil System

Apr 27 2018

Dr. Pedro Franco recently gave an implant lecture in Edina about a new/old concept. The lecture was about the Trefoil implant surgery and restoration. The former name was Novum and the Trefoil is new and improved.
The Trefoil system is an efficient solution that allows Immediate Function and makes fixed and definitive teeth on the day of implant surgery an option for more patients. The pre-manufactured titanium bar simplifies the creation of the definitive acrylic prosthesis and saves substantial time for the restorative clinician and the dental lab. The pre-manufactured framework, anatomically designed for the natural arch of the mandible, contains adaptive joints that adjust to compensate for horizontal, vertical and angular deviations from the ideal implant position and enable the passive fit of the definitive prosthesis.
I enjoyed catching up with Dr Franco. He is an instructor in oral and maxillofacial surgery at Baylor College of Dentistry, Texas A & M University System Health Science Center in Dallas, TX where I trained.

THE FIRST PRE-MANUFACTURED BAR WITH A PASSIVE FIT

The Trefoil system is an innovation that brings new efficiencies at almost every step – from manufacture of components to definitive restoration. The Trefoil system offers reduced chair time and shorter time-to-teeth compared to conventional treatment by combining: a pre-manufactured titanium bar, a simplified restorative workflow, a fixed and definitive acrylic prosthesis, reduced restorative, reduced chair time and restorative work, and shorter time to teeth.
