Trefoil™  the next full-arch revolution



Dr Russell Baer is one of the first to offer the Trefoil system, a breakthrough in efficiency for treating the mandible (lower jaw). Using a pre-manufactured bar with a unique fixation mechanism, it can adjust to compensate for inherent deviations from the ideal implant position. This is a new fixed solution for definitive teeth in one day.
















Nobel Biocare has led innovation in full-arch solutions for over 50 years. Dental implant patients are increasingly demanding immediate restorations. To meet those demands, Dr Baer and Dr Schelkopf  are offering a  solution with fewer surgical steps, shorter treatment time, high success rates, high patient satisfaction and function on the day of surgery. The Trefoil™ system is a cost-efficient solution that allows Immediate Function and makes fixed and definitive teeth on the day of implant surgery an option for more patients.

Trefoil™ – An Affordable, High-Quality Full Arch Teeth Replacement Solution!


When serious tooth loss becomes an issue, it’s time to start considering permanent tooth replacement options. The Trefoil™ system is the newest and most affordable proven full arch tooth replacement option available today. Trefoil™ , by Nobel Biocare.


For many decades now, Nobel Biocare has been the dental industry’s leader in dental implant driven tooth replacement innovation. They revolutionized the dental industry with the All-On-4 Treatment Concept™, which is a system that takes advantage of the existing bone in the jaw and makes the most practical use of it. The All-On-4 Treatment Concept™ has lowered the price of permanent tooth replacement nationwide, while simultaneously solving for the very common issue of bone loss following tooth loss.


Today, we are proud to present Trefoil™, the next step in permanent, full-arch, tooth replacement. The Trefoil™ system uses only three dental implants to support a full arch prosthesis, which has a dramatically positive effect on cost while allowing for excellent long-term results!


What Is Trefoil?


Trefoil™ is a full-arch, tooth replacement system that is supported by three dental implants. Trefoil™ incorporates a pre-manufactured framework that is uniquely designed to match the arch of the mandible and is supported by only three dental implants.


How TrefoilWorks?


What makes the Trefoil™ system unique is that it allows us to be flexible in our application of the dental implant placement angles. Being flexible with implant placement allows us to maximize the amount of healthy bone that the implant is placed in, allowing for higher success rates. The key to the Trefoil™ system lies in the adaptive joint attachment system that allows us to connect the prosthesis framework to the dental implants. These adaptive joints allow us flexibility in placement without sacrificing structural integrity or precision during the prosthesis placement procedure.


Is TrefoilRight For Me?


If you are dealing with significant tooth loss, or are facing it in your future, the Trefoil™ system may be a viable option for you. Trefoil™ is designed to fit a wide variety of patient needs and is even more affordable than the All-On-4 Treatment Concept™. If you were previously a candidate for the All-On-4 Treatment Concept™ but turned it down due to cost, or because pre-treatment planning required a bone graft, the Trefoil™  system could be exactly what you have been waiting for!


Fewer Implants Means Fast Recovery


When considering any permanent prosthesis, recovery time is always an important factor. One of the biggest benefits of the Trefoil™ system is recovery time. Since Trefoil™ only uses three dental implants, recovery time is faster.


We look forward to giving you a smile that you deserve!
