Mectron Piezoelectric Bone Surgery System

Mectron`s piezon-electric surgery system can be used for osteotomies and osteoplasty in implantology. Additionally it can be used in periodontal, endodontic and surgical orthodontics. It`s selective cutting action allows for mimimal soft tissue damage, especially useful for opening sinus windows during lateral sinus lift procedures. This unit comes with an array of handpiece tips designed for an array of surgical procedures.

DenX`s IGI Implantology navigation system wins 2006 Medical Design Excellence Award

DenX`s innovative CT-image driven implant planning and placement system, `IGI`, was recently honoured with a Medical Design Excellence Award. IGI allows a virtual implant to be placed on the CT image with the assistance of advanced planning tools. During the surgical procedure, the clinician guides the implant to the precise location, angle and depth required according to the plan. Real-time localization feedback assisted by audio and visual media allows the clinician to monitor the success of the procedure and avoid

Straumann`s Peek/Titanium Composite Implant? – US Patent Pending

Straumann has filed a US patent application for a Peek/Titanium composite one-piece Implant. This implant design features an outer titanium shell (label 1 and 2) and an inner core made of PEEK (label 3 and 4). This designs claims the aesthetic advantage of the white-coloured PEEK at the collar and abutment with the proven osseointegration properties of titanium. This is an interesting design response to the number of zirconium collar (TBR Group) and all zirconium implant (Z-Systems) designs.

MIS Ceramic Composite Implant Drills

MIS has introduced a ceramic composite (Zirconium / Yttrium / Aluminium) drills in 2.0 mm, 2.1 mm and 2.8 mm diameter. They reportedly feature reduced vibration and smoother operation. One important property that Zirconium drills claim over stainless-steel drills is that they maintain their sharp edge for an extended period.

Nobel Biocare`s Groovy Implant Surface

Nobel Biocare has introduced an improvement to their Ti-Unite Surface. By placing micro grooves on the surface they claim to increase the implant stability by up to 30% thereby allowing for more rapid bone formation. This surface improvement takes a mechanical approach to increase Bone-to-Implant Contact as opposed to the chemical surface modification`s introduced by Astra (Osseospeed) and Straumann (SLAtive), their main competitors.

Z-System`s All Zirconium Implants and Surgical Instruments

Z-Systems has introduced a completely metal-free implant and set of surgical instruments for placement of these implants made from 95% Ziconium dioxide and 5% Yttrium tri-oxide. Zirconium is one of five metals shown to support osseointegration (the others are: Titanium, Niobium, Tantalum and Platinum). This new approach has been certified for use in Germany, but FDA clearance for use in the United States is planned. A few animal and human based studies suggest that the bone-to-implant contact percentages (a measure
