Preparation of implant beds - with feeling
The preparation of implant beds has to be efficient - and, at the same time, requires a great deal of feeling. The 9 new Implant/Crestal instruments for the Piezomed from W&H are specially indicated for fine maxilla bone and the internal sinus lift. Compared with standard rotary instruments, they offer improved tactile feedback, are less invasive and encourage osseointegration.
Piezo surgery – a broad spectrum of applications in oral surgery
In the age of minimally invasive treatment, dental surgeons and oral and maxillofacial surgeons are increasingly employing piezoelectric devices for the preparation of bone tissue. They allow particularly atraumatic preparation of hard tissue on the basis of ultrasonic surgery technology and the cavitation effect allows an almost blood-free operating field.
Implants should only be inserted when periodontal conditions are stable
Biofilm is the most significant cause of inflammatory bone loss around teeth and implants. Diagnostics, biofilm management and, where necessary, treatment help in patients with this problem. The W&H No Implantology without Periodontology workflow should provide stable tissue prior to implantation through prevention, and implant success in the long term through aftercare – something that is advantageous to both the patient and the treatment team.

Correct measurement of implant stability
The correct measurement of implant stability and osseointegration has always been a fundamental criterion for the success of the treatment. The explicit patient demand for streamlined treatment processes combined with an increasing number of patients with risk factors result in progressive and ambitious protocols in which conventional processes such as the torque or percussion test are being strained to their limits.
