W&H Acquires Osstell to Further Strengthen its Market Position Within the Field of Implantology


Gothenburg, Sweden March 1, 2018: W&H, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of dental precision instruments and devices, has acquired Osstell, the global leader in implant stability measurement and osseointegration progress monitoring.


Osstell’s innovative and patented technology helps its customers, dentists around the world, to make dental implant treatments even safer and more predictable, by measuring the stability of implants objectively and non-invasively using the ISQ technology (Implant Stability Quotient), and thereby helping clinicians improve patient confidence and comfort. Founded in 1999, Osstell developed the patented ISQ technology and the products are sold in more than 50 markets globally with operations in Sweden (Gothenburg), and the USA.


Osstell and W&H have cooperated very successfully in the past, so it is a natural step that Osstell now becomes a part of W&H. As such, we get the opportunity for stronger and broader global representation, as well as greater delivery capacity – always with the aim to serve our customers and users with even better products and services as well as helping them to provide best practice services to their customers – the patients. Patients’ well-being is always the top priority,” says Mr. Jonas Ehinger, CEO Osstell. Read More >
