Experiences of the new Implantmed surgical device
Implantologists report ...
Safe, simple and flexible: The W&H Implantmed provides dentists, working in implantology and oral surgery, with a device whose specifications are precisely tailored to the requirements of everyday treatment practice.
Implantmed is a high-quality system that combines performance with practicality.
While the automatic thread cutter function integrated into Implantmed and the tightening torque control provide support when placing implants, the W&H Osstell ISQ module makes it easier to select the best possible time for loading.
Implantmed also offers maximum flexibility thanks to its wireless foot control, its modern and intuitive user interface and its higher torque compact motor.

Dr. Dime Sapundžiev: “The new Implantmed from W&H with its outstanding design and excellent performance characteristics is a surgical unit that one must have in one’s oral surgery office. The latest innovation from the W&H team, the wireless foot control, puts the innovative W&H device on the top among the surgical units available on the market. The absence of a cable provides the opportunity to place it in the most comfortable place for the surgeon without interference with other cables and units around the dental chair.
An additional benefit is the opportunity to use one control for several units simultaneously. This gives the surgeon freedom in the operating room, space and more time to concentrate on the patient and operative technique. Using two units during one surgery saves a lot of time, and it is an advantage when you do not have to search for the correct foot control. Also by using just one foot pedal requires less storage space.
New straight and contra-angle handpieces with excellent and extended illumination, which lasts after the motor stops running, gives clear and direct view of the operative field. An optional W&H Osstell ISQ module for measuring the implant stability helps implantologists make decisions between different loading protocols. The new Implantmed with its simplicity, ergonomic design, easy to use characteristics and accessories makes it an oral surgeon’s best friend in most demanding clinical situations.”
PD Dr. Jörg Neugebauer: “Treatment time and predictable outcome are still the relevant factors for our patient to undergo a complex implant prosthetic treatment. Due to my specialization with a couple of hundred referring dentists, an objective measurement of the implant stability is necessary.
Even with the use of short and angulated placed implants there is still a need for grafting procedures. For a safe treatment, implant stability should be monitored without harming the implant, to determine the healing time after implant placement and the loading time after second stage surgery.
With the Osstell device a reliable assessment of the implant stability and the degree of osseointegration is possible. With this data an individual determination of the different healing periods is possible, which leads in an optimum treatment time and allows to manage risky patients.
Due to the cooperation with W&H with the new generation of Implantmed, a combined device is available, which minimizes the number of devices during surgery. During the implant placement a control of bone quality and implant stability is easily possible, which allows a protection of the hard tissue for over-compression or overloading.”
